As a patient, feeling comfortable during dialysis and chemotherapy treatment can make all the difference. It’s so important to have a space to feel safe, secure and stress-free, with the best chemotherapy treatment chairs to support you. Here are some ways to help you stay comfortable and relaxed – including the new Premiere Encora Chair, now available to buy from Premiere Healthcare.
Listen to music
Studies have shown that patients who listen to music during medical treatments experience significantly less pain, discomfort and nausea. It’s best not to risk a fall or strained muscles by reaching to change records or CDs, so why not ask a family member to download a streaming service like Spotify onto your phone for you? It doesn’t have to end with music either: story tapes and spoken-word autobiographies can also be great ways to switch off.
Try mindfulness and meditation
Switching off – or ‘quietening down’ – your thoughts can be an invaluable way of staying positive and relaxed in difficult times. These days, mindfulness takes many forms, from adult colouring books and relaxation podcasts to transcendental meditation. Have a look on the Internet, or ask your family, friends and GP for suggestions, then try a few and see what works for you.
Support your body with chemotherapy treatment chairs
During lengthy medical treatments, it’s vital that your chosen seating keeps you comfortable. Chemotherapy treatment chairs are designed for exactly that purpose, giving complete control over leg elevation and back recline, and letting you set the perfect tilt-in-space angle to promote healthy posture. If you spend long periods seated, chemotherapy treatment chairs can also help you avoid concentrated pressure on body areas, which can cause reduced blood flow and risk of a pressure injury.
