Outline

This chair is specifically designed for patient/doctor consultations. Its comfort allows a patient to remain at ease during diagnosis. Providing full support and comfort to the patient it can be easily raised or lowered according to the height of the patient. So that elderly patients feel safe when sitting down or standing up the standard model is set in a fixed position, but this can be easily changed to swivel mode. The chair when rotated back to its original position locks in place. Further by the doctor and patient sitting in the same design of chair this encourages communication.
