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 well-being 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 programs combine 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 customi
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.
