Proud to be Preferred Supplier to HCA Hospitals

 Seating Matters are proud to work with HCA Hospitals in the London area providing highest standards of therapeutic, clinical seating for their patients.

The Seating Matters Range through HCA

HCA Hospitals London Bridge and Wellington offer only the highest standards of health care to their patients.  They have approached Seating Matters as a preferred supplier for their seating needs as Seating Matters chairs are supported by comprehensive clinical evidence.  At Seating Matters we have a unique understanding of our patients needs, and our chairs were designed by myself Martina Tierney OT to meet the needs of patients with complex conditions.

There are four chairs from our range available to HCA for rental.  Research trials on our chairs have proven fantastic results such as a reduction in pressure injuries within just a 12 week trial.  


Seating_Matters_Sorrento.jpgThe Sorrento is a simple to operate and stylish chair which is desgined to improve and maximise comfort as well as postural support and pressure management.  It has unique adaptability and effortless adjustablity which means it is perfect for use in multi user environments, readjusting to suit the needs of a new user ensuring their comfort, posture and pressure management remains uncompromised.  Tilt in space is available up to 45°, as well as standard adjustments for safe seating such as back angle recline, and optional accessories to encourage midline positioning and maximise function.


The Phoenix is the most supportive and functional of the Seating Matters chairs, Seating_Matters_Pheonix.jpg
designed to give maximum upper body support through lateral and head supports.  The unique adjustability of the Phoenix means it will adapt to changing needs of a person being rehabilitated and will meet changing needs of a person with a long term condition.  The adjustable lateral, soulder and head supports can conform to the person’s individual posture and position with fast and easy adjustments.  Like the Sorrento, the Phoenix has the critical functions to ensure maximum pressure management is achieved such as up to 45° tilt in space, back angle recline as well as additional accessories if required to maintain or encourage mid line posture as well as maximise function.


Seating_Matters_Monaco.jpgThe Monaco is ideal for users with reduced mobility or sitting balance who require comfort and support without compromising independence in transfers and function.
Its unique angle adjustable seat creates an optimum and safe sitting position when adjusted posteriorly.

It reduces sliding, discomfort and shear as it helps to maintain positioning of the pelvis.  It can also be adjusted to assist with stand transfers and independent ambulation, making it a multi functional comfort chair.


BARIATRIC SORRENTO™ Seating_Matters_Bariatric_Sorrento.jpg

The Bariatric Sorrento was designed to help seat bariatric patients by providing improved postural support and repositioning, while reducing the risk of injury to the patient and staff alike.  The Bariatric Sorrento™ is the world’s only tilt in space bariatric chair.  With its adaptability and effortless adjustment, the Bariatric Sorrento™ can be adjusted to suit the changing needs of a user or readjusted to suit the needs of a new user meaning their comfort, posture and pressure management remain uncompromised.  With that in mind, the Bariatric Sorrento™ lends itself easily to multi-user environments.  Removable arms can assist with side transferring or sling application and removal.
