Chairs 101: What you need to know
Ensuring safe transfers
One of the first considerations that should be made when assessing for a chair is how a person will transfer. This determines the mechanism needed to facilitate safe transfers. Further adaptations can then be made to suit the person's size, pressure, and postural needs.Types of seating mechanism
Chair size is the second priority after transfer. The correct size chair supports a person by reducing the need to shuffle around in the seat of the chair and the tendency to lean to one side to obtain support, and it enables users to stay in a midline position.How to assess for the correct chair size
Preventing pressure ulcers
When prescribing a riser recliner, it is important to consider the service user’s pressure ulcer prevention and management needs. Specialist fabrics and pressure cushions can contribute to pressure care and assist in prevention.Pressure ulcer prevention and management
Ideally a person should be able to sit on a chair with their back against the backrest of the chair, whilst their feet are flat on the ground or on a footplate. Their hips, knees and ankles should be at 90-degree angles, and their arms supported by the armrests.Learn more about postural management
