Patient Chair | Nala

Incorporating ergonomic principles and innovative technologies from groundbreaking Herman Miller work chairs, Nala chairs deliver superior comfort and support. The back and seat tilt mimics the natural movement of the patient’s body. Correct body support is maintained in all positions, regardless of the weight of the patient and the patient is supported comfortably, even during longer periods of sitting.

The durable, fully extended arms and soft front seat edge help patients guide and stabilise themselves when they are moving into or out of the chair. A barrier-free foot area provides enough space for the patient to stabilise him- or herself when getting up. The chair’s leaf spring acts as a power source to reduce the physical effort required in moving seated patients forward. It’s easier to move even heavier patients up and out of the chair.

Options and Fabrics

Available in harmonic tilt and fixed back options. An integral handle in the chair back, as well as rear casters, can be specified to make moving the chair easier. An optional headrest pillow adjusts up to 229mm; the edges curve outward to hold and support the patient’s head. An ottoman supports up to 159 kilograms and is sturdy enough to use as a seat for guests or family. Nala chairs offer durable, antimicrobial, moisture-repellent, and easily cleaned fabrics that meet the performance and durability standards of healthcare environments.

Nala was the first patient chair to receive McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) Silver Cradle to CradleSM (C2C) certification. Nala has 33 percent recycled content, and is 86 percent recyclable.
