Arene Rise & Recline Chairs
Each Arene chair is tailored to the client’s needs; whether it’s the various backrest options and pressure relief, or colour schemes and upholsteries, the Arene can be made to suit anyone. With the Arene Mk II offering a wealth of features to make it as supportive and comfortable as possible, it truly is the best rise and recline chair for hospices and environments that deliver end of life care.
After building good relationships with many hospices over the years, we decided to design a riser recliner chair that was perfectly suited to their needs. We wanted to create something specifically for the needs of hospices that offered softness and support for the ultimate level of patient care. As far as we’re aware, our Arene rise and recline range is the first in the world designed exactly for the needs of hospices.
Having worked closely with hospices for a number of years, we’ve learnt a lot about what they and their patients require in seating. Whereas all other seating has been blinkered and focused solely on the medical needs of the patient, we’ve gone leaps beyond and looked at how we can make seating as easy as possible for caregivers, as well as improving quality of life for the user.
We’ve married the patient’s medical needs with their lifestyle needs to create the Arene Mk II, which boasts a range of features that will help hospices and other facilities keep patients happier and comfier in what can be particularly difficult stages of life.
Not only does the Arene Mk II deliver exceptional comfort, positioning and postural support, it also looks incredible. With a new streamline design, the Arene Mk II is modern, stylish, and sophisticated in any environment.
The Arene Mk II can easily be customised to suit any existing decor thanks to the wide variety of upholstery and materials that it can come in. With a Dartex covering on the seat areas, the rise and recline chair is easy to wipe down.
The outer parts of the chair (including the armrests) are upholstered in a different colour, with a contrasting stripe running from the base of the armrests all the way up to headrest.
This combination is a great way to incorporate specific colour schemes and patterns, making the furniture feel more homely and in place in hospices and other care environments.
Made for infection control
For places where infection control is a top priority, we’ve designed a version of the Arene that meets all your needs.
The cushions are attached to the chair magnetically so there’s no need for velcro. The handset is also fixed to the side of the chair with a magnet so there’s no extra fabric or stitching needed. This also means that there’s no extra nooks or crannies where bacteria can harbour and grow.
The base cushion snaps into place and you then fold the cushion over the top. The backrest cushions are then put into place and attached with a magnetic strip across the top.
The head cushion is then attached above this with the magnetic strip across the top of the chair.
The Arene Mk II comes in three different models to suit every prospective user:
