Which Primacare chair is right for me?
With a number of specialist seats on the market, Primacare offers a solution for every client’s needs. Here are some of our recommendations:
Good for all-day comfort: Primacare Affinity Air Comfort Chair
The Primacare Affinity Air Comfort chair has been designed with maximum comfort in mind. To achieve this there is a special seat construction with extra long springs to give more bounce. The seat and back cushions are made up with three individually controlled air cells to allow the occupant to personalise the comfort. The chair contact surfaces use four-way stretch vapour permeable fabric which adds to the comfort of the chair.
Good for patient assistance: Primacare Monza Assist Rise & Recline Chair
Combining the functionality of a comfortable rise & recline chair with the manoeuvrability of a wheeled porter chair, the Primacare Monza Assist chair also comes with features that enable clients to access the chair with or without the use of a hoist. The arms have been specifically designed to accommodate stand aids such as the Sara Stedy – this is a massive benefit to those who are still weight-bearing but need the all-day support with tilt in space.
Good for bariatric seating: Primacare Low Profile Bariatric Rise & Recline Chair
For patients with higher weight requirements, Primacare offers a range of bariatric seating solutions. These chairs are built with reinforced frames and durable materials to support individuals with obesity or larger body sizes. With its extra thick, high-density cushions, the Primacare Low Profile Bariatric Rise & Recline chair is a comfortable option for heavier adults. It is simple to use, and is suitable for hospital wards, hospices, care homes, and in the home environment.
Good for home comfort: Primacare Brecon Rise & Recline Chair
With its scroll arms and full chaise footrest, the Brecon wouldn’t look out of place in any home setting. No wonder it’s Primacare’s most popular style. Features include rise & recline, a sumptuous three-pillow waterfall backrest and cushions that are adjusted vertically for maximum support. It’s also available in a wide range of fabrics and seat widths making it super adaptable for any client’s needs.
Good for companionship: Primacare Pembroke High Back Chair
The Pembroke is a popular high back chair with a lateral back cushion giving excellent support and comfort, especially for users who lean to one side. There are four sizes available and it is available in a client’s fabric of choice. With its classic looks and wooden legs, it is particularly suitable in a domestic setting or for bedside use in a hospital ward.
Good for portering: Primacare Alpha Porter Chair
The Primacare Alpha Porter chair is an inexpensive solution for portering needs but still comes with many adjustable features for all-day comfort. The chair has adjustable seat depth, seat rake angle and back rest recline and comes in two widths with a double seat cushion as standard. The cushion materials are four-way stretch vapour permeable fabric which is washable up to 95°C. There is a clever pull-out footplate that adds comfort when portering and the use of VP fabric enables the chair to be upgraded with different pressure-relieving cushions.
Good for a quick turn around: Primacare Monza Contract Express Chair
This chair style comes in three sizes, three colourways and three action types and can be delivered within 7-10 days. The action types available are single tilt in space, dual motor and dual tilt in space, all with a 20-stone weight capacity. It comes with a removable seat system and three waterfall back cushions which can easily be adjusted to improve the comfort of the chair. Medium risk pressure relief foam is supplied as standard but the chairs can be specified with all pressure management options.
