Healthcare Chairs + Portachairs

Although Riser Recliners are a great solution for many people with mobility problems, but others will have more complex clinical needs and require a more specialist seat, with additional features to help with posture, pressure management, hygiene and transfers.



healthcare chairs by:

Bespoke chairs which can be configured to meet a particular user’s needs. The chairs will generally be able to recline, and most will also ‘rise’ to help with standing. They usually have electric motors to help change position. Learn More about CarePlus Clinical Chairs

Key features of these chairs include:

  • Advanced posture management – such as multiple back cushions options to provide postural support
  • A range of pressure cushions to optimise pressure management.
  • The ability to specify different cushions or supports to deal with different pressure relief needs.
  • Postural inserts, as well as back and seat cushions, can be easily removed to provide flexibility in addressing changes in the users postural and pressure requirements.
  • Wipeable covers for easier cleaning
  • Although they may be fitted with castors for moving the chair, Healthcare chairs are not designed for moving the user from one place to another

Tilt-in-Space Function




Portachairs have many features in common with healthcare chairs but add the ability to transport the user from one area to another. Amongst other benefits, portachairs can:

  • Improve posture and pressure relief
  • Increase social interactions
  • Reduce number of hoist transfers
  • Decrease carer time

In purchasing a healthcare chair or portachair it is essential that a proper assessment is carried out to make sure that the chair is the correct size and is specified to meet the exact needs of the user. We are very happy to carry out joint assessments with healthcare professionals.

If you, for any reason you do not want to purchase a chair immediately, we can also offer RENTAL options.
