Every time we carry out an assessment, we can see the impact that seating has on people’s lives. Too many people continue to endure pain because of poor posture or suffer a reduced quality of life because of avoidable pressure ulcers.
Support from the correct chair can improve a person’s psychological, physiological and activity related function, but the cost of purchasing a specialist chair can often be out of reach.
At Independence Mobility, we're committed to enabling more people to enjoy the benefits of custom made seating. To do this, we offer a rental service.

Seating Matters Injury Prevention Program
Pressure ulcers continue to be a problem in all healthcare sectors and affect 1 in 5 of all patients across the acute care, long term care and home care environments. Our colleagues at Seating Matters have launched the 'Seating Matters Injury Prevention Program' designed to help healthcare professionals reduce the occurrence of pressure injuries in their establishments. The program aims to address the issues frequently present in facilities by taking staff through series of steps and initiatives which will ultimately enable patients to enjoy the benefits of specialist seating.

Service back up
When you rent a chair, you can enjoy peace of mind. If a problem occurs with your chair, you don’t have to worry about repair costs as a full service back up is provided under the terms of the contract. We look after all repairs free of charge during the rental period. In the event of your chair experiencing a problem we will replace this or issue a loan chair to you whilst your chair is being repaired.
Flexible rental terms
There are various rental packages available from short term packages ideal for discharge and palliative care and longer term packages.
Changing client needs
It is hard to anticipate changing future needs of your clients. Renting a chair allows you to have the chair for a short period allowing you to upgrade or change to a higher spec chair to better suit your clients’ future needs. This is a great benefit for clients with degenerative conditions or rehab patients.
