Patient Chair | Centé

The lightweight and comfortable Centé Tilt chair reduces the physical effort required of caregivers when moving a patient from standing to seated and back to standing positions. When a patient needs to stand up, the shift-control mechanism lifts and repositions the patient’s center of gravity, reducing the caregiver’s effort in lifting the patient up and out. When a patient needs to sit down, an elevated forward incline, reduces the distance between standing and sitting in the chair, and the patient can sit more easily and safely with less support from a caregiver.

The shift-control handle is large, soft, and easy for the caregiver to grasp. The chair arms swing up and out of the way, giving caregivers full access to their patients. The arms lock in both the upright and down positions.

A tilt mechanism allows for a 10-degree recline, to reduce pressure on the spine and keep the seated patient relaxed. When the patient leans back, feet stay flat on the floor and the front edge of the seat doesn’t rise, so blood flow in the thighs isn’t restricted. The seat and back suspension surfaces reduce spinal pressure and disperse body pressure evenly over the chair’s seat and back.

Cente is available in mesh or fully upholstered versions and in a Tilt or Flex model allowing a choice of air circulation or Air circulation or a range of vinyl and polyurethane fabrics from our healthcare textiles range.

Useful Options
A headrest and ottoman are options for all Centé chairs. An integral headrest reduces the need for separate pillows and other attachments. An ottoman is available, allowing the chair to accommodate the maximum number of body heights and types. It can be stowed under the chair when not in use. Rear casters may be specified to make moving the chair easier.

Centé Tilt weights just 22kg, and the Flex model weighs 20kg, so both can be moved easily on optional rear casters to facilitate room cleaning.
