Seating Matters are continually carrying out clinical testing and trialing of the chairs.
The Milano™ chair has been tested through pressure mapping methods to evaluate its pressure management properties. During this process, a computerized clinical tool is used to assess the pressure distribution for pressure management properties. Once the patient is seated, the computer then displays a map of pressure using colours, numbers and a graphic image of the seated position. Typically, the hotter colors (the reds) indicate areas of higher pressures, and the cooler colors (the blues) indicate areas of lower pressures.
The Milano™ takes the clinical features, the quality and durability for which Seating Matters is known and puts it into an accessible, universal chair. Designed for facilities and contracts, it is perfect for multiple users and can easily be adjusted to fit different patients.
The Milano™ tilt in space chair gives support, comfort and pressure management to patients who have low to medium support needs and those who may still maintain a degree of mobility. Ideal for stand transfers, the Milano works well with patient lifts.
The Milano™ has a variety of optional accessories to accommodate a range of different patients and their needs:
- Concave head pillow.
- Horseshoe head pillow.
- Seat belt.
