Cubro worked with La-Z-Boy® to design a chair with a mobile base that allows hospital patients or rest home residents to remain seated and be wheeled along. “Together we’ve designed a good mobile base with a central braking system.”
Keeping the chairs clean was a top priority, which led to the creation of a special iClean™ fabric with revolutionary technology that forms a barrier against spills, preventing them from becoming stains. “Every inch of fabric is completely immersed in a stain-resistant solution which guarantees every single fibre has been treated, leaving a concentrated barrier of protection but still keeps the fabric soft and luxurious,” explains Ashley.
The Pinnacle Recliner features La-Z-Boy’s® signature ‘rocker’ action (which can be disabled) and has a plush pillowed back and padded rolled arms, perfect for rest and relaxation. The Pinnacle Platinum Powerlift Chair has twin motors allowing the user to lift up into a standing position or fully recline all the way back into a zero-gravity position to stimulate blood circulation and achieve pressure relief.
“We’ve basically retained all the benefits of the standard La-Z-Boy® retail range and designed it to suit a healthcare environment. This brand has a lot of unique features and they are very comfortable.”
