Seating Matters Milano Chair


Together with Seating Matters, we have extensive experience in solving seating problems in the areas of falls prevention, pressure injuries, bariatric seating and those with complex muscle contractures. Seating Matters have created the Milano™ to bring that clinical expertise and world-famous high quality to a universal, accessible chair.

Perfect for Loan Stores, Hospitals and Nursing Homes

The Milano™ takes the clinical features, the quality and the durability for which Seating Matters is known and puts it into an accessible, universal chair.

Perfect for multiple users, the Milano™ can be easily adjusted in seat width, seat depth and footplate height to fit a different patient. As there is no velcro in the design, it passes very stringent infection control standards and makes re-issue and re-use of the chair very simple.

With impressive strength and durability, the Milano™ will help the NHS and equipment loan stores, hospitals and nursing homes across Yorkshire and the North of England to save money by being able to be re-used over and over again.

A Revolution in Seating Design

The Milano™ tilt in space chair is designed as a simple, adjustable and affordable care chair. It gives support, comfort and pressure management to patients who have low to medium support needs and those who may still maintain a degree of mobility.

Support and Adjustability

Pressure distribution is provided in the Milano™ due to the tilt in space mechanism, the Dartex multi-stretch material and reflex foam in the seat cushion.  The Milano™ chair offers an adjustable back angle recline to accommodate the patient and the elevating legrest can be raised and lowered, also increasing patient comfort.

The push handle and castors allow the patient to be transported in the chair.  It is fully hoist accessible which reduces moving and handling significantly.
