One of the standout features of the supportive Lento patient therapy chair is its re-articulating leg-rest and angle-adjustable footplate. This allows you to easily find the most comfortable position for your legs, reducing pressure and ensuring optimal blood flow.

Plus, the locking tilt-in-space function enables you to sit and sleep comfortably and safely, reducing pressure risk and promoting better overall health.

Recliner & Tilt In Space Chair For Elderly & Low Mobility Care

A tilting chair for elderly or disabled care can help the seated person to maintain the correct posture while being tilted so pressure is distributed evenly across the body.

For low mobility or elderly users, this tilting chair style reduces skin shearing, breakdown and lessens the chances of pressure injuries developing, even when sitting for prolonged periods of time.

Available as Adjustable Hospital Patient Seating

While the original Lento Care Chair was created to support elderly, disabled & low mobility care in nursing home, community and home care settings, our hospital spec Lento Care Chair is available to buy as a hospital chair for elderly, disabled & low mobility patients in acute environments.

Through our work with NHS hospital across the UK, we identified the needs of staff in their hospital chairs when providing care to elderly and low mobility patients.

Hospital Chair Built for Pressure Care & Infection Control

We reinvented the highly adjustable and supportive Lento Care Chair to include a range of hospital specification features that make the Lento a hospital ready chair for elderly & disabled care that is optimised for infection control in healthcare facilities.

This hospital ready chair features a comfortable, black, wipe-down Dartex fabric throughout contact areas to ensure a cool seat surface during prolonged periods sitting down.

With all the same adjustable chair features and technical specifications of the standard model, the Lento hospital ready patient care chair replaces Velcro fastenings with magnets.

This makes the versatile Hospital Lento care chair even easier to clean, minimises the chance of cross-contamination between patients, and fully complies with hospital infection control standards.

Designed to offer high level care and support to elderly and disabled patients, the Lento hospital chair rests on wheels, making it ideal for portering through hospitals and other acute care environments.
