A stay in hospital isn’t an experience that people look forward to, which is why making care environments as comfortable, functional and as home-like as possible is an important consideration. Furniture plays a crucial role here, as it can transform the appearance, comfort levels and flexibility of a space instantly. Here, we take a more detailed look at our Shangrila Chair Bed and how this piece fits seamlessly into healthcare and care settings.
Utilising a simple, two-step movement, the Shangrila quickly transforms from a chair into a bed. This function offers an innovative solution to the problem of short term bed provision. Hospitals are busy places where situations escalate and change quickly, so this flexibility when it comes to offering a place for people to rest their heads is important. The Shangrila can be used for visitors at a patient’s bedside, for staff who need to take a break, or to provide rest for people facing long delays. With its compact and modern design, the chair bed will also complement any environment.
With regards to the chair’s design, the seat cushions are deep and created from comfortable foam to ensure real rest and recuperation. The two-step movement from chair to bed is also operated using an easy pull mechanism to release the two bottom sections of the bed, with the headrest tilting to form the third section and provide a full length bed for users.
Like most of our furniture solutions for healthcare, the Shangrila has built-in castors for ease of movement and cleaning. Does the furniture in your care home or healthcare setting work for you?
