Worcestershire had a very basic, single motor rise and recline chair which was not meeting the needs of many of the service users, and had no adjustment possibility. Also, a lot of money was being spent on expensive bespoke chairs (partly due to the lack of functionality in the basic chair) which were difficult to reissue and tended to gather dust in stores. A new seating solution was required!
Worcestershire replaced their basic chair with Configura® Rise and Recline and included Configura® Care and Configura® Bariatric as ‘standard specials’.
Training session were set up for all OTs in Worcestershire and training was carried out for stores staff covering cleaning, repair and maintenance.
