Boasting a wide variety of built-in features, the Lento care chair offers a versatile solution for almost any user. This care chair has been designed and crafted by the Yorkshire Care seating team, and offers easy depth and width adjustment, as well as several other adjustable features that make the chair completely customisable to many users. The Lento is ideal for multi-user environments or NHS loan stores, it’s also equally at home in a domestic setting.

Flexible Fit

With multiple adjustable features, the Lento is one of the most flexible care chairs. It can fit to almost anyone’s body shape with easy-to-use depth and width adjustment and height adjustable arms, as well as a rearticulating legrest and angle-adjustable footplate for extra comfort. There are no tools or additional parts required to adjust the chair sizing, it takes literally seconds, and the chair can fit anyone over 5ft 2 (1.6m) and under 25 stone (158kg)!

The Lento includes a removable seat and detachable wings to give more flexibility in the way of customised support. This care chair also features removable armrests for easier side transfers, and the locking tilt-in-space function also makes it remarkably easier for individuals to sit and sleep in comfort and safety whilst reducing pressure risk.

Built for the Many

With a safe working load of 25 stone (158kg), the Lento can provide comfort and support to many users. It also has removable headrests and cushions to make sure that any user is comfortable, and the extending legrest and adjustable footplate keep them well positioned and supported from top to toe. Not only do these features make the Lento excellent for customising to fit an individual’s needs, it also makes them ideal for environments where they will be used by an array of different people with varying complex needs.

Hospital Lento

The Hospital Spec Lento Care Chair is optimised for infection control!

All features and technical specifications are exactly the same as the standard Lento model. The important difference is all Velcro fastenings have been replaced with metal poppers and zips.

This makes the Hospital Lento even easier to clean, minimises the chance of cross-contamination between patients, and fully complies with hospital infection control standards.
