The Bed Armchair has been designed to help prevent patients slipping sideways when sitting up or lying back in bed. As the Bed Armchair is made in four individual sections, it is easily put together or pulled apart from behind a patient sitting up in bed.
The arm rests are adjustable and can be pulled forward to a different position to rest the patient’s hands. The pelvic/lumbar support is used under the patient to support their back when semi-lying in a reclined position.
Three different grades of foam have been used to create the Bed Armchair. For the back rest, a moderately firm grade of foam has been glued together with a slow recovery foam to give a firm but soft back support and help prevent sideways slip. The pelvic/lumbar support is also made from a moderately firm grade foam, with a layer of slow recovery foam for added patient comfort and to prevent the spine from bending. The arm rests are made from a firm grade of foam to give good support and be strong enough for the patient to lean on, or reposition themselves without collapsing.
