Lento Care Chair

The Lento Care chair has been clinically designed to address even the most complex of care needs and can be adjusted to fit anyone over 5’ 2”.


The postural features built into the chair provide head-to-toe 24-hour support, whilst its carefully chosen materials and cushions for complete pressure care make it a universal solution for adults in patient care or at home.  Motorised tilt-in-space, backrest recline, and footrest movement are all controlled by an easy-to-use handset. 


The chair’s unique modular design means component parts can be easily removed and reattached, leaving the base of the chair exposed for cleaning. 


Designed for use in hospitals, care homes, community care facilities, hospices, and private residences.

    Product Features

    Adjustable For Customised Fitting

    The seat depth, width and arm height can all be easily adjusted to resize the chair for different people, without needing any special training or tools.   

    This makes it perfect for use in multi-user healthcare environments where the same chair may need to be used for different patients.  However, it also means that you can size the chair perfectly for a single user at home, to make it a personalised comfortable companion for years to come. 

    Where patients are living with medical conditions, the extra adjustability and support provided by the Lento Care Chair helps to avoid deconditioning, and therefore extra hospital admissions. 

    Combining Function With Comfort

    • Locking Tilt in Space – The lockable tilt-in-space function can be manually or electrically operated, pivoting the user back in the chair and redistributing their weight more evenly across contact areas. This is beneficial for pressure relief and maintaining skin integrity, as well as offering extra postural support, improved circulation, assisted breathing and swallowing, and much more.
    • Backrest Recline – The backrest has independent recline enabling it to be angled for extra repositioning and comfort.  
    • Articulating Leg Rest – The extendable footrest with gel leg rest wrap provides continual pressure care, alleviating pressure on the legs and providing relief for people with oedema and circulation problems in the lower limbs. 
    • Angle Adjustable Footplate – The padded footplate is height and angle adjustable, helping to facilitate postural issues in the lower limbs such as windswept feet, swelling or plantar flexion. 
    • Arm Adjustments – The arm height can be adjusted on the Lento Care Chair, as well as being fully removeable for easier side transfers. 

    Manual, Single, Or Dual Motor Action

    You can choose whether you would like all the chair’s functionality to be electronically controlled by the ergonomic and easy-to-use handset, or otherwise just the tilt-in-space, and/or backrest recline.  We can assist you in choosing the right functionality for your needs.   

    • Manual: rise and recline using a lever on the push handle of the chair. 
    • Single Motor: allows you to control the rise recline movement. 
    • Dual Motor: allows you to control both the tilt and the backrest recline. 
    • Dual Motor Tilt-In-Space: allows you to individually control all the chair’s functionalities. 

    Configured For You: Backrest & Cushion Options

    For even more support and comfort, the standard backrest cushions can be swapped out for waterfall, lateral or cocoon backrests, to suit the postural needs of each individual client.  Wedges and other supporting cushions are also available to ensure correct body positioning in the chair. 


    A range of postural supports and accessories are available for the Lento Care Chair, find out more here: Lento Care Chair Accessories Pack | Vivid Care 

    Ideal For Infection Control

    The unique modularity of the chair allows the seat and sides to be easily removed and magnetic cushions detached (no velcro), leaving the base of the chair exposed for cleaning.  All materials can withstand rigorous and regular wiping with standard detergents, and the cushion covers can also be removed for machine washing.   

    Considered Pressure Relief

    The soft four way stretch dartex material to all contact surfaces keeps the skin cool and hydrated, protecting the surface of the skin.   

    Cushion options include:  

    • Viscose Foam: Medium Level Risk (included as standard)  
    • Honeycomb Gel: High Level Risk 
    • Alternating Air Systems: Top Level Risk 

    A Long-Term Solution 

    Made in Britain to the highest quality standards, the Lento range is built to last. The solid stainless steel frame and motor mechanism are made from the highest quality components, all hidden from view within the chair’s seamless design.
