Wellness Nordic Relax Chair

Difficulties with communicating and performing everyday tasks can take a toll on elderly people with dementia. Helping people with cognitive disorders relax through soothing music and tactile stimulation can have a beneficial effect on their wellbeing and quality of life.

The fully-automated Wellness Nordic Relax Chair* combines music, tactile stimulation and rocking motion to offer a unique and calming multi-sensory experience.

Addressing individual needs in the care setting

Pre-set rocking programmes combine smooth, quiet motion and soothing music with tactile stimulation to promote physical and mental relaxation and refreshment, depending on the needs of the resident. Each setting is also easily customisable with just the touch of a button.

A weighted blanket

A weighted blanket adds to the experience by creating additional comfort and sensory stimulation. Residents may find that the overall pressure from the heavy blanket, combined with the comfort of the U-shaped cushion, provides a cocooning sensation making it easier for the residents to feel their own body.


As distributor of the chair and your support partner, Arjo offers a range of value added services and trainings.
