Yorkshire Care Equipment has designed and manufactured a new rise and recline chair to help alleviate pressure on the NHS during the ongoing pandemic.
The Lento Rise & Recline Chair features interchangeable parts designed to make it easier for healthcare professionals to support their patients.
Every dimension – seat height, depth, width, back height, and arm height – can be altered in seconds with no need for tools.
Tristan Hulbert, managing director at Yorkshire Care Equipment said: “Patient discharges and recovery can sometimes be held up by long wait times for equipment. Particularly with the rising cases of Long Covid over the past year or so, we could see that NHS hospitals and loan stores needed quicker solutions to help patients recover.
“The Lento Rise & Recline Chair will help to alleviate this issue because it’s so flexible. The entire seating system is adjustable to fit every user which means patients can be discharged quicker and recover faster because the Lento can be adjusted to suit their needs perfectly.”
Yorkshire Care has also designed a hospital spec version of the chair that is fitted with magnetic fastenings and easy-to-clean fabrics to help reduce the chances of cross-infection between patients.
Yorkshire Care’s in-house physiotherapist, Padraig Finn, said: “When people leave hospital, they can have a variety of different needs and healthcare equipment needs to accommodate this to help people recover.
“We know that the Lento range, and particularly the new Lento Rise & Recline Chair, will provide a key solution going forward and will hopefully make it easier to provide quality patient care on every occasion.”
