All-Foam Furniture

The Carefoam two-piece model (shown) is a key component of a restraint-free fall-reduction program. The “all-foam” construction eliminates hard edges, reducing the potential for skin trauma. The furniture is designed to comfortably accommodate in a variety of seating positions, providing head, neck, and lumbar support.

Manufactured from five different densities of foam, including “memory foam” in the seat, the chair provides overall support and pressure reduction. Unique features accommodate both weight-bearing residents and the use of a mechanical lift.
