It is made in four individual sections. It is easy to put together, or pulled apart from behind a patient sitting up in bed.
The arm rests are adjustable and can be pulled forward to a different position to rest the patient’s hands. The pelvic/lumbar support is used under the patient to support their back when sitting in a reclined position.
Three different grades of foam have been used to create the Bed Armchair. For the back rest, a moderately firm grade of foam has been glued together with a slow recovery foam. This gives a firm but soft back support and help prevent sideways slip. The pelvic/lumbar support is also made from a moderately firm grade foam, with a layer of slow recovery foam. This is for added patient comfort and to prevent the spine from bending. The arm rests are made from a firm grade of foam to give good support and be strong enough for the patient to lean on, or reposition themselves without collapsing.
