Platforms for Care

As part of the Careleda Group, our core seating ranges revolve around the concept of chairs being “Platforms for Care”. A lot of “specialist seating” ranges across the market, are essentially based on developments in domestic seating, adapted for medical needs. Platforms for Care however, break the mould of traditionally upholstered seating. Here are the key principles:

✓Modular construction built around a configurable chassis

✓Able to adapt over time to suit changing clinical needs

✓Designs based around the “job to be done”, patient and carer centric solution

Seating for Intensive Care
