Every Seating Matters chair has been thoroughly designed by Martina Tierney OT and clinically trialled. Every detail is developed and engineered to offer optimum quality, safety and support for both user and care giver. Our Bariatric range of chairs are built to suit the unique shapes and needs of bariatric patients.

The Bariatric Sorrento has been designed to reduce the risk of injury to the patient and caregiver. Fully motorized to limit patient handling, the Bariatric Sorrento fully accommodates the user’s unique body shape which limits sliding, provides postural support and repositioning. Removable arms also assist with side transferring or sling application and removal.
