Pressure Reducing Cushions at SCF Healthcare Furniture

When looking for quality healthcare furniture, you want a design that not only looks great and stands the test of time, but provides the upmost comfort for the user.

Healthcare patients and residents require the highest quality of seating that gives them the comfort and support they need, especially when using the chair for long periods of time. SCF are passionate about innovation in this area and have found a solution to the daily struggle of patient comfort and pressure sore prevention in new cushioning technology, Reflexion. Read on to find out why you should look to these new cushions when sourcing your healthcare furniture and pressure relief seats.

Pressure sores or ulcers are formed when a large amount of pressure has been applied (often experienced when sitting or lying down for long periods of time) and stops the blood supply resulting in red, blistered and even broken parts of the skin. This problem is even more persistent when underlying health problems also exist such as diabetes, hip fractures, paralysis and deep vein thrombosis. This is often the case in care and nursing homes. Pressure sores can take months to heal and be very serious for some, even leading to life threatening complications such as gangrene and blood poisoning.

Available as an upgrade on all chairs in our ranges, Reflexion cushions go a long way in the prevention of pressure sores or ulcers. Reflexion is a unique combination of two layers; the upper layer of ‘Vasco’, Visco-Elastic memory foam, reacts to body heat and moulds itself around the contours of the user to evenly support all areas to reduce pressure on critical parts of the body. The base ‘Reflex’ layer then provides support and flexibility to the upper layer to give users a complete support solution. We have tested this technology in-house with our manufacturers and it has been proven to boost circulation and lessen the development of pressure sores.

SCF Healthcare Furniture has a range of both contemporary and traditional chair designs to suit your décor.  All SCF chairs also come with a 5 year frame guarantee so you can have peace of mind that you are investing in quality furniture that provides the comfort your residents expect.

Upgrades to Reflexion cushions start from as little as just £31! Call us to discuss your requirements today!
