Healthcare Chairs

At Shire Mobility we have been working in healthcare environments such as care homes, nursing homes, and individuals for over 20 years supporting their needs and solutions on healthcare chairs. Our specialist healthcare chairs also called hospital chairs are designed to accommodate a wide range of individual medical needs. Whether the requirements are for a raised chair that offers postural support and pressure relief, a sensory-stimulating chair to help with motor restlessness and sensory impairment, or something entirely different our expert team can help you find the right solution. To make sure the right solution is found we offer personalised assessments and will work where needed with occupational therapists and care teams to do that. We only use premier suppliers such as Repose for our specialist care home chairs.
