Seating Standardisation is a concept we have pioneered in NHS hospitals and is a principle that applies throughout acute or community health settings wherever specialist seating is used.
The principle of seating standardisation involves having a smaller range of chairs with a wider clinical application, rather than the reverse which is all too common in healthcare environments.
Having an unplanned approach to seating can be a systemic issue in many healthcare environments.
The problem occurs when organisations source a wide range of individual bespoke chairs to suit seating requirements as they arise.
This approach causes higher costs, higher wastage and greater resource inefficiences.
The solution to the mixed seating dilemma lies in a simplified seating programme with an in-depth understanding of the key seating components required for each healthcare setting.
Having a smaller, tailored seating range that encompasses a wider range of clinical applications is now possible due to the adaptability of our Lento seating range and treatment-specific seating.
We have worked with many hospital trusts on seating standardisation projects that have delivered major benefits.

"The seating range is vast and the team have been very responsive and helpful throughout the process" Read the full case study.
