Back Angle Recline Adjustment in Seating – Why is this Feature Important?

Back angle recline has many benefits and is a crucial element of seating for the support and positioning for those with certain abnormal postures. Did you know all Seating Matters chairs have back angle recline adjustment?

Jonathan Tierney from Seating Matters talks about a specific patient case study where a patient with Huntington's Disease was resigned to laying on a mattress on a floor as the care facility and staff thought there were no safe ways / chairs which could keep the patient safe and secure and free from harm. Then Jonathan brought the patient one of the Seating Matters Atlanta chairs, which was the first seating solution that successfully kept the patient safe, secure and meant they could be left unattended without constant supervision.

Seating Matters are changing the world of healthcare seating.

Seating Matters create world-leading specialist seating for adults and children. They were designed by Martina Tierney, an Occupational Therapist with 30 years experience in seating patients. Martina and her colleagues at Ulster University conducted the first and only clinical trial ever carried out on seating to prove the effects on the health and quality of life of patients. This trial recorded an 88% reduction in pressure ulcers in just 12 weeks among various other clinical benefits.

This ground breaking trial is having an amazing impact on patient care across the world.
