As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of bespoke seating solutions, Repose Furniture is continually investing in the development of new chairs, and will be using this year’s event to unveil new models on stand C01.  Complimenting these new product launches will be current models from the company’s range of healthcare chairs – the Boston, Harlem and Multi C-air.

In addition to the chairs on show, the Repose team will be on hand to demonstrate the products on display, answer any questions and to book assessments with occupational therapists and their clients. Visitors to the stand will also have the chance to win a Hotel Chocolat hamper worth £50 in the Repose selfie pod competition.

“We are delighted to once again be exhibiting at the OT Show and unveiling the latest additions to our portfolio of seating solutions. Occupational therapists are vital to us as a manufacturer and to have the opportunity to engage with so many and gain feedback on our latest product developments over the two days of the show is fantastic for us,” commented Managing Director Lisa Wardley.

Boston Porter Chair

Launched at last year’s event the Boston Porter features new wing handles for ease of portering when the chair is occupied and the backrest reclined and also a new double comfort lateral back cushion for luxurious support and comfort.  With a choice of either an electric or manual model the Boston comes with standard features that include Tilt in Space, independent backrest recline and leg elevation, as well as a height and angle adjustable footplate all of which are aimed at maximising postural management. The Boston is ideally suited to being part of a client’s 24-hour pressure care management programme. A range of interchangeable pressure management back and seat cushion options ensure that the correct comfort and posture choices can be made.

Kate Sheehan, Repose’s resident OT commented: “The Boston has been engineered to meet the needs of semi-ambulant and non-ambulant users with a range of additional support features to modify the chair to individual needs.”

Harlem Porter Chair

The Harlem Porter Chair was designed for people with Huntington’s disease in conjunction with Repose’s resident OT Kate Sheehan and Mike Wooldridge, one of the UK’s leading specialists in caring for people with the disease.  This is a highly-engineered chair designed to be robust enough to absorb the involuntary movements which are associated with Huntington’s.

Available in small, medium and large, the Harlem Porter has a maximum user weight of 20 stone.  Standard features include an independent back rest recline with a range of angles and seat angle adjustment to reduce the risk of a patient falling out due to severe involuntary movements. There is also a deep padded seat area for additional safety and comfort, a choice of 6 interchangeable back styles facilitating different pressure management and posture solutions and four different seat cushion options to accommodate different levels of comfort and pressure management.  Further features include seat depth adjustment, high arms and a sliding padded footplate for ease of patient movement.

Multi C-air

The Multi C-air electric rise recliner in our latest health fabrics is ideal for any health environment. It features a dynamic frame and design that offers a cost-effective solution to the ever-changing demands of individual care requirements, efficiency and infection control. This highly adjustable chair can be adapted to suit any individual or to one user’s changing needs thanks to a choice of 6 interchangeable back cushions and eight interchangeable pressure management seat cushion options. There is a choice of either Single and Dual Tilt in Space mechanisms with VAL technology as well as adjustable seat depth and height.
