Patient Chair

Lightweight, mobile, and exceptionally comfortable, Centé meets the needs of both patients and caregivers. Its durable, permeable suspension materials provide comfort by helping air circulate around the patient. A unique shift control mechanism helps position the chair at different heights and angles, to increase seated comfort and convenient approach to the chair. The matching footstool nests fully under the flex model and partially under the tilt model when not in use.
