Unrivalled Flexibility

Virtually every part of the seat can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs perfectly, whether it be seat height, depth, or width. There are no tools needed to make it as straightforward as possible to provide bespoke solutions for every user.

You also have the option of switching out the cushions and supports to provide even more personalised postural support, including extendable and adjustable wings. The Lento comes with an adjustable waterfall lateral backrest as standard but can be switched out or altered to suit any individual. You can also add or remove wadding from each cushion for even further postural management needs.

The Lento riser recliner is a perfect option for loan stores and hospital discharges when patients may need a riser and recline chair immediately. What’s more, the flexible positioning of the chair means that it can be used between patients and provide the same high-level comfort and support on every occasion.

Variety of Positions

With users’ needs varying so much, the Lento is equipped with tilt-in-space action to help maintain comfort whilst managing the client’s postural needs. The backrest is also angle adjustable and there is the option to upgrade to dual motor tilt-in-space simply by adding a motor and swapping the handset!

There’s also the ability to switch to a cocoon backrest to stabilise and support the user from their pelvis right up to their head. Combine the cocoon backrest with wedges to support users with scoliosis or other conditions. The headrest can also be swapped for a soft pillow or horseshoe cushion to suit a variety of user needs.

If pressure relief is an issue, the Lento can be adjusted and upgraded in seconds from medium pressure relieving Visco cushions to high gel cushions or very high alternating air cushions. This riser recliner comes in dark grey vinyl with black 4-way stretch materials on contact areas as standard (although other vinyl colours and soft fabrics are available).

Designed for Carers

Although the Lento riser recliner boasts a wealth of flexibility for users, it has also been designed with carers in mind. We’ve simplified the whole specialist seating process to ensure that you can always deliver the best care with minimal hassle. The Lento has removable arms for easier side transfers, and you can also use the vertical rise function to make it even simpler.

Parts are interchangeable across the Lento Rise and Recline Chairs and the Lento Care Chairs, so parts are available immediately from stock and can be kept on-hand in loan stores and other locations where multiple Lento chairs are used.

The cushion covers have zips, making them easy to remove to be washed or swapped for others. They are also fixed to the chair with Velcro, which means it is easy and quick to strip the chair down for easy cleaning between users.

The Lento Rise and Recliner Chair is also available in a hospital specification version that uses press studs or magnets to attach cushions and reduce the chance of cross-infection.
