Known for its effortless use and enabling qualities, the Monaco™ has been designed for comfort and mobility with independence at the forefront of its design.
A Revolution in Seating Design
The name Monaco comes from the Greek meaning alone or living alone. This is sums up the meaning of the Monaco chair. It was designed to encourage independence in sitting by supporting the body and encouraging the users to stand up independently with little assistance. The Monaco chair provides stability in sitting without compromising function. Early use of the Monaco will reduce dependence on carers for mobilization.
Together with adjustable back recline, waterfall back, optional lateral supports and pressure management materials, a high level of positioning and pressure redistribution is achievable without compromising the function or independence of the user. The Monaco™ accommodates those with tight hamstrings as the negative angle clearance underneath the seat is designed to facilitate safe retraction of the feet behind the knees, ensuring the user’s positioning is not dangerously disrupted.
The optional variable angle leg rest can be used to elevate the lower limbs and assist in the management of oedema. The inclusion of swivel castors, push handle and sliding footplate facilitate easy mobility and access to other environments within the home or care facility.
Rachel, 94, had arthritis and a history of falls. She mobilised with a walking frame and needed assistance for transfers. Rachel’s old chair was much too big for her, causing her to slide from the chair. Following assessment it was decided that Rachel should use a Monaco chair. Rachel no longer slid and she was able to easily maintain upright posture.

This pressure management hip and arm support gives extra protection to the patient sitting in the chair by allowing immersion and envelopment of bony prominences in the arm of the chair. The arm supports help with postural alignment by supporting the arms and stabilizing the pelvis. With this added hip and arm support, the arms provide an additional level of pressure management.
This “C” shaped pillow provides lateral head support for clients with poor head control and encourages a midline head position. It increases comfort and contact with the chair and incorporates the Seating Matters pressure management used on user contact surfaces of the chair.
These pressure redistributing supports are used for those needing thoracic/trunk support and helps reduce development or further deterioration of scoliosis, as well as promoting midline sitting for those that tend to lean to one side.
Padding can be incorporated into the footplate of the chair for additional pressure management, to accommodate or improve foot position or to further decrease the seat-to-footplate height for individual users. WATCH VIDEO
