Seating Matters Sorrento Chair


The Sorrento™ is clinically designed for the individual who requires pressure management, postural support and most importantly, comfort.

The Sorrento chair has become the most popular Seating Matters chair as it embodies, comfort, relaxation and a feeling of ease for its users. It provides comfort and support as it is very easy to use and will provide long term benefit to the user. The chair has been proven to reduce pressure, prevent sliding and falls from the chair and encourage early mobilization for bed bound patients.

It is used widely in hospitals and rehabilitation units.

Tilt in space can be used to improve posture and redistribute pressure.  This can also be converted to include forward tilt for rehabilitation or in self transferring situations.  The adjustable back recline will accommodate users with limited hip flexion and when used in combination with tilt in space it can prevent sliding from the chair.

Optional lateral supports and supportive pillows can help to maintain or improve posture and facilitate functional ability in activities of daily living such as eating and communicating.  The correct use of these features and accessories can also reduce common problems such as falling to the side when seated.
