Medical office chairs play a major role in patient care quality. Most doctors would agree that the body has a better chance of healing itself when a patient is calm and optimistic. Providing your patients and their guests with comfortable seating will go a long way toward creating that proverbial “bedside manner” that every patient wants to feel when receiving medical treatment. Adding a decorative touch to sound ergonomics contributes an attraction factor to your facility which makes longer visits away from home more relaxed, pleasant, and warm.
Your lobby is the first part of your care facility that patients experience. You will need to select medical office chairs that maximize your square footage without sacrificing patient comfort. For smaller clinics with limited lobby space, we have a number of multi-person seating options. To save on floor space without crowding individual personal space, consider furnishing your waiting area with a low-back, two-seater configuration with an adjoining center table. For higher traffic waiting areas, consider three-seater options in low-back, high-back, or individual arm rests configurations. We also have bench seating without back rests and a variety of wood frame or steel frame single seating chairs for medical waiting rooms of all kinds.
It is also necessary to pay attention to the comfort level of your administrative and caregiver staff. These professionals better serve the needs of patients if their own well being is maximized. Consider investing in rolling stools that make it easy to move between medical filing and desk areas. Also, think about outfitting your caregiver lounge with upholstered medical office chairs that offer a much needed rest to staff on break. Upholstered options include sofa chairs that recline, wingback medical office chairs with high back support, and waterfall front seat covers that add comfort when sitting for longer periods. We also have chairs with wallsaver legs and removable components that can be field replaced for minimum maintenance costs.
Many of our medical office chairs can also be placed in patient rooms for authorized guests and patients can use while they wait for nursing staff and doctors to arrive.
