Maybe you’re new in this field or maybe you’ve been working in it for years but this is the first time you’ve been tasked with ordering new furniture for your facility. No big deal, everyone has bought furniture before—you go online or you go to the store, you pick out what you want, maybe from a show floor or maybe from a catalog, and within a matter of days, a week or two at most, bam, you’ve got a new room. Hold up there! What works for the average buyer of residential furniture won’t work for a facility with special needs.
Furniture offers a surprising number of ways to help staff manage patient or consumer incontinence with dignity.
Statistics site obesity in the US at around 33% of the population. Something for Everybody AND EVERY BODY! SEATING WITH DIGNITY.
Fortunately, there are more and more bariatric options available from contract furniture providers. Bariatric furniture includes a wide variety of wood, metal and upholstered seating pieces that are designed and tested to hold up to heavier weights then standard furniture pieces.
Adding bariatric furniture to a seating space is not only a necessary option to prevent furniture breakage, but all people deserve the opportunity to use seating with an appropriate width that allows a body fit comfortably.
Truth is that although bariatric seating serves a very practical purpose, constructing furniture to higher weight standards also serves to ensure a highly durable and versatile seating piece that can and will be used by everyone (patients, clients, guests and staff!) regardless of size.
