Mobility dealership Yorkshire Care Equipment has developed its own healthcare chair which it has hailed as “just the beginning for its own Yorkshire Care product range.”
The company’s Lento care chair marks first time that the care and mobility equipment company has developed and designed its own chair.
Having worked with healthcare professionals a long time, Yorkshire Care said it wanted to create a care chair that would fill a gap in the market. The company estimates that the Lento will suit the needs of approximately 80% of the population.
Tom Hulbert, Yorkshire Care’s CEO, claims that the Lento will fit a higher proportion of people than other care chairs on the market.
“This is a great step forward for Yorkshire Care Equipment,” he said. “The versatility of the Lento means that we don’t need to waste time waiting for made-to-measure seating to be made by a different supplier. We can immediately provide and fit the Lento, which saves a lot of time and money. As a family-run business, we’re taking an ambitious step by creating our own product. The Lento is just the beginning for our own Yorkshire Care product range.”
Meanwhile, Padraig Finn, band 6 physiotherapist at Yorkshire Care, commented: “The Lento is leaps ahead of other care chairs due to its adjustability. It’s a single chair that can cater for optimal postural support in many people with even the most complex postural presentations is an exceptionally useful quality in care equipment.
“Having such an adaptable chair saves time and money without compromising on the quality of care. That’s precisely why the Lento will suit nearly all environments, from clinical settings, to private ones.”
The care chair is designed to provide a solution to care homes and NHS loan stores where several different patients will use the same chair. The versatility of the Lento allows care facilities to provide strong support and comfort to their patients with just one chair.
