Designed for the healthcare market, the Pal Chair by EOC will surely befriend those who use it. Built with comfort in mind, Pal Chair “is just as silky smooth as her profile.” Soft, textured armrests form a one piece multiple contoured molded back—they sort of become the back in a seamless arc of transformation. With either an upholstered or perforated back, Pal Chair gives users support, thanks in part to the chair’s sled base, which provides a passive flex action sit. So go ahead and lean back—like a good friend, Pal will support you.

Stackable and Seamless Chairs for Healthcare Market
Because healthcare venues need versatility, EOC designed the Pal Chair to be stackable. This makes the chair easy to store. Take out a bunch of Pal Chairs when waiting rooms need more seating or when patients have more visitors in their rooms. And EOC also considered the high-demand uses of healthcare environments. The Pal Chairs feature “protective outer plastic seat and back shells that quickly wipe clean and are field replaceable.” This means that Pal Chairs can be easily updated (or sanitized).
Best of all, Pal Chair looks much better than standard healthcare furniture. Its sleek and seamless tubular frame recalls sled chairs of the mid-century, while its unique armrests-cum-seatback whisks the design into the new century. Should I find myself in one of those ill-fitting and uncomfortable hospital gowns, I can at least feel good about my seating options if I find a Pal Chair in my room.
