The Seating Matters Range through Medequip

Seating Matters are the first and only chairs to be supported by comprehensive clinical evidence.  At Seating Matters we have a unique understanding of our patients needs, and our chairs were designed by myself Martina Tierney OT to meet the needs of these patients. 

Two chairs from our range are available through Medequip stock for high dependency patients.  Our chairs have been thoroughly researched and clinically trialled in real life setting with real patients, and proved fantastic results such as a reduction pressure injury reduction within just a 12 week trial.  

SORRENTO™ - High Dependency Chair

The Phoenix is the most supportive and functional of the Seating Matters chairs, Phoenix.jpgdesigned to give maximum upper body support through lateral and head supports.  The unique adjustability of the Phoenix means it will adapt to changing needs of a person being rehabilitated and will meet changing needs of a person with a long term condition.  The adjustable lateral, soulder and head supports can conform to the person's individual posture and position with fast and easy adjustments.  Like the Sorrento, the Phoenix has the critical functions to ensure maximum pressure management is achieved such as up to 45° tilt in space, back angle recline as well as additional accessories if required to maintain or encourage mid line posture as well as maximise function.
