Vacuum Formed Seating
Available from BioFit Engineered Products
BioFit vacuum formed seating is designed to protect against bacteria in healthcare settings. Additionally, these ergonomic chairs and stools are proven to enhance user comfort and decrease the risk of repetitive motion injuries while helping maintain sanitary workplace conditions.
Vacuum forming is a process which eliminates the seams found in traditional upholstered seating. The benefits of the vacuum formed process to healthcare users are two-fold: First, eliminating seams eliminates the primary path for bacterial infiltration into the furniture and prevents spilled liquids from seeping through to the cushioning beneath the vinyl upholstery; and, the process significantly increases user comfort and support by minimizing the amount of compression on the seat and backrest foam during the manufacturing process. Vacuum forming also results in fuller lines, giving chairs and stools an aesthetically pleasing contoured profile. Plus, this natural, unencumbered expansion of the foam cushioning helps the chairs remain substantially more comfortable after long-term use.
BioFit manufactures vacuum formed chair and stool models for a diverse array of the specialized workspaces prevalent in the healthcare industry, helping make users’ jobs safer and easier, whether they’re assigned to triage units, patient admission, treatment rooms, nurse stations, or beyond.
