Chairs, Rehabilitation, Cardiac

Definition : Rehabilitation chairs designed to help cardiac patients assume a posture that assists in their rehabilitation and mobilization. These chairs typically have special characteristics (e.g., headrest, height adjustment, back and arm positioning, safety belts) that facilitate rapid patient positioning in the appropriate posture; they may also be designed to facilitate easy patient monitoring. The chairs may be mechanically or electrically adjustable. Some chairs also permit limited indoor transportation and/or include a table for patient use (e.g., dining, writing). Cardiac rehabilitation chairs are widely used in acute care settings as well as for short-term and long-term rehabilitation; they are intended for patients with chronic cardiac diseases who may benefit from being out of bed, such as those suffering from congestive heart failure.
