High Dependency Seating
High dependency seating is designed for people who need to be seated for long periods of time. High dependency seating reduces discomfort, prevents pressure sores and enables comfortable transportation.
High dependency seating that is tailored for the individual and their postural and pressure care needs can also increase activity related function and improve their overall well-being.
Our specialist high dependency seating range offers a solution for balancing the four key considerations:
Comfort, Pressure Relief, Posture Control and Independence
Posture is extremely important to our level of function so it is crucial to be well supported to achieve maximum function and independence. There are numerous benefits to correct positioning in seating such as; effective digestion, respiratory function, comfort and pressure relief.
Ordinary armchairs are therefore not suitable for people with complex needs who sit for prolonged periods and are unable to maintain their posture or change position independently. Many people are confined to bed because ordinary chairs and wheelchairs do not give them appropriate support, but with the right seating choice they can re-join their friends and family in daily life.
We supply Careflex innovative, specialist, clinical grade, high dependency seating to help support your needs and make you more comfortable at home or in hospital. Careflex are one of the leading manufacturers of high dependency seating.
Tilt-in-space mechanisms have been developed in high dependency seating to provide postural alignment in order to offload pressure, provide a stable sitting position to improve function, relieve fatigue and maximise comfort.
Careflex have developed specialist tilt-in-space high dependency seating to address the discomfort, pain, pressure ulcers, spinal abnormalities, and loss of functional ability that sitting in the same position can result in.
High Dependency Seating is an essential part of the 24 hour postural management programme. Designed for all environments; both domestic and care settings including intensive and palliative care, the high dependency chair is designed to be a vital part of the user’s care plan.

Delivering Life Enhancing Solutions
One of the main issues when sitting or lying down for long periods is the discomfort caused by skin and soft tissue damage which happens when soft tissues are compressed to the point where circulation stops.
