The prospect of placing an order for medical equipment may strike fear into the hearts of those who have never done it before. In this short essay, we’ll go over the basics of what you need to know before placing an order for medical furniture.
How to Manufacture a Chair
In hospital settings, normal commercial or home furniture is generally not appropriate since it cannot resist the constant usage and severe disinfectants required.
Patients should utilise “bariatric” chairs, or those with a weight capability of 500-750 lbs., which account for around 20% of all seats. Check that there is enough of room to “clean out” under the chair’s seat. This lets trash drop to the ground, making it much simpler to clean up messes. Chair frames should be sturdy, easily maintained, and resistant to chemicals; metal has these qualities in spades. Wooden chair frames may be unsanitary, so you should think about using aluminium or plastic instead.
Fabrics can make or break an undertaking. No woven or fabric materials should be used in healthcare settings; instead, everything should be non-porous and easy to clean. Try to choose fabrics that will withstand the chemicals you use in your company without being damaged. We advise selecting premium healthcare vinyl; there are many options available in a wide variety of colours and pricing points.
Wood adds cosiness to a space, but its porous nature makes it vulnerable to damage and a breeding ground for pests like bedbugs. Laminate, which mimics the appearance of wood but is simpler to clean and disinfect, is a superior option for heavily used areas. Consider employing a solid surface on high touch or high moisture surfaces like countertops in healthcare facilities due to its seamless nature and chemical resistance.
