Outline

“Ipsia” is specifically designed for patients needing dialysis, chemotherapy or other time consuming treatments. Superior comfort, full body support and large arm rests allow them to comfortably rest in a reclined position. Remotely controlled this chair-bed can be adjusted to various sleeping or sitting positions for maximum patient comfort. Amongst its other features there are rear mounted speakers that can be connected to the TV to provide surround sound. Angle and height adjustments for both the seat and back rest relieve the burden on caregivers and make transfer to the stretcher easier.
