1. Identify Your Needs

Before you begin shopping for specialist seating, it is crucial to determine your needs. Ask yourself some important questions such as; what type of seating will be most comfortable for you? Is there something specific that you're looking for? How much time will you be spending in the seat? Will you require any special features such as adjustable height, tilt or swivel? Understanding your needs will help you to identify the best specialist seating to suit your situation.

If you’re not sure, don’t worry – we can help you with this. Talk to our friendly team on 01905 29950.

2. Choose the Right Material

The appropriate specialist seating material can significantly impact your level of comfort. You should choose materials that are comfortable and easy to maintain, while also factoring in your medical conditions. For instance, people with sensitive skin may want to avoid harsh synthetic materials that may irritate. Leather or vinyl are excellent options for people with incontinence issues since they clean easily. Also, consider the durability of the materials. Choose a seat with high-quality materials that will last for long and provide adequate support at all times.

3. Size and Weight Capacity

It is essential to select a specialist seat that is the right size for your body type, and one that can accommodate your weight. People who are larger or taller may need a more comprehensive seat to accommodate their bodies comfortably. You can consider heavy-duty options with a high weight capacity for added support. Additionally, consider the size of the space where you will be using the seat to ensure that it fits appropriately.

4. Adjustability

It’s beneficial to choose a chair that can be adjusted to meet your unique needs. For those with posture issues or spinal injuries, choosing a seat with tilt or recline options might be necessary. People with medical conditions such as arthritis may benefit from a seat with adjustable height and armrests.

We can supply you with an entirely bespoke chair that is tailored to your exact needs and requirements. Select the size, chair style, rise & recline mechanism, weight capacity, fabrics and accessories to build a chair just for you.

5. Comfort

The comfort of your specialist seating is vital to your productivity, health, and overall well-being. Choose a seat that provides enough comfort and support for your daily activities. Specialist seats with memory foam or gel cushions can provide added support for pressure points, while chairs with breathable fabrics can help in temperature control. Additionally, consider seats that provide sufficient back support, seating surface, and armrests.
