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.
