Steelcase's Empath Patient Recliner is a patient-centered, nurse- and doctor-friendly chair and transport tailor-made for healthcare environments.
"Developed entirely from real-world insights," Empath has multiple features that enhance the quality of the patient-doctor interaction-each of which reduce stress for both patients and caregivers, while also decreasing the likelihood of injury for both.
Some of the above include a central lock mechanism to keep the recliner in place, a footrest lever for patient comfort, an arm grip/footrest scallop to enhance ease of entry and exit, flip-down arms, flip-up tablet, and a trendelenburg setting for medical applications.
Empath is available in a wide range of color and upholstery options. See Steelcase for additional information about Empath's contributions to patient comfort and safety.
