Sorrento chair

Seating Matters

Support meets comfort

As you would expect from a chair designed by a therapist, the Sorrento is ideal for individuals who have to spend a significant amount of time seated.

It offers a supportive design but makes its user’s comfort a priority and helps to reduce the risk of skin breakdown. Additionally the anterior lift option can also help to provide independence with transfers.

The Sorrento is particularly well suited for individuals at risk of pressure sores, suffering from reduced trunk control or swelling, or with rehabilitation needs such as after a stroke.

Seating Matters recently completed a two-year clinical trial with the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, looking at the principles of correct seating.  The study demonstrated that correct seating – using these armchairs, reduced skin breakdown and pressure ulcers by 88 per cent in a 12 week period. (The research summary can be found here).
