Lento Rise & Recline Chair – Case Study
When a customer needed a rise recliner to help them rehabilitate following an operation, Yorkshire Care found the right chair for their situation and delivered it within 24 hours!
The chair identified was The Lento Rise and Recliner Chair, chosen for its adjustability, features and Yorkshire Care’s speedy service.
The Need for a Rise and Recline Chair
Following an assessment by an occupational therapist, a recommendation was made for a rise and recline chair that met all the patient’s needs.
The chair had to be adjustable to cope with any changing needs of the patient and manoeuvrable to allow for user to be wheeled around their home.
There are many reasons patients can require rise and recline chairs. The chairs can help users who are leaning forward with their hip and increasing the risk of falling or sliding out of the chair.
Rise and recline chairs also aid in preventing the development of pressure injuries that result from the increased pressure caused by leaning.
This can come through the tilt-in-space action that transfers pressure across the body or through the pressure relief cushion on the seat.
Adjustability: The Lento is fully adjustable to fit 80% of the population!
The adjustability of the Lento rise and recline chair allows the pressure relief cushion on the seat to be changed and replaced with a higher-pressure relief cushion if needed.
Manoeuvrability is also an important factor in rise and recline chairs; it is important that the chair’s user can be moved into different surroundings.
The durable castors (wheels) on the Lento rise and recline chair mean this can be easily done by family or carers.
Rise and Recline Chairs as Standing Aids:
Rise and recline chairs are also regularly used as standing aids by users to help them into an upright position. This feature is particularly helpful for patients regaining their strength and confidence when standing.
There is a range of Standing Aids for the Elderly and Disabled available designed specifically to be used to help you stand up.
Rise and recline chairs act as a standing aid that comes with added adjustability and manoeuvrability features.
The Lento rise and recline chair met the recommendations made by the occupational therapist and the customer was overjoyed that Yorkshire Care was able to deliver the next day.
