The Extra Wide Plyfold Chair by Wieland Healthcare

Everyone can relate to the awkward experience of standing around in a patient’s room at the hospital. Indeed, the lack of comfortable seating—or any seating at all—seems to be a veritable epidemic (if you’ll pardon the awful pun) in hospital rooms across the country, creating the cumbersome scenario of sending nurses or staff scrambling around looking for a chair. All of this, of course, diminishes the quality of the visit. Thankfully, Wieland Healthcare has the best interests of patients and their visitors well in mind. Wieland’s Plyfold stackable chair is comfy, ergonomic, stow-able, and spacious.

The New Wide Version of Plyfold Accommodates All Shapes and Sizes

Plyfold is a sort of greatest hits among healthcare products. Most in the industry are familiar with its molded wood construction, contoured removable cushions, hidden hinges, and back-side mounting brackets. However, not everyone knows that Plyfold has recently been re-issued in a considerable larger size.

The new Plyfold is two inches wider than the original version, meaning its dimensions come in at 21” wide x 22.75” deep x 32.5” high. Despite the bigger bang for the buck, so to speak, (and despite its 400 pound capacity), the chair remains just as portable as Plyfold the first.

As with the original, the wide Plyfold is lightweight and stackable. Add the option of hanging wall brackets and back edge wall guards, and you have a surplus of superlative visitor seating—comfy, practical, easy to clean, and good looking to boot.
