    Physiotherapy team leader about the exercise chairs

    “The chair is very stable due to the frame and the brake and it gives us a safe and quick patient transfer as well as a safe training — and it can also be used in other therapeutic areas.”

    Patients can sit down at training units by them selves after we got this chair, as the good stability and handbrake tend to make patients more independent.”

    Physiotherapy team leader, Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy, Johannesbad Saarschleife, Germany
