The Empath recliner is designed to reduce stress and the potential for injury for both patients and clinicians while increasing physical and emotional connectedness.
DESIGNED TO SUPPORT PATIENTS + CLINICIANS
The Empath recliner is a crucial step forward in the health process – one developed entirely from real-world insights based on thousands of hours of observation and analysis. Its design considers the needs of both patients and clinicians as primary users.
Across healthcare applications, Empath is designed to reduce stress and the potential for injury for both patients and clinicians while increasing physical and emotional connectedness.
PATIENT + CLINICIAN AS PRIMARY USERS
Our research revealed that clinicians’ top concerns are keeping patients comfortable and safe while promoting overall quality of care. Empath is designed to meet these needs and help empower patients and clinicians alike.
In the patient room.
Empath eases patient transfer, giving clinicians more opportunity to focus on quality interactions and human connection.
In an exam room.
Empath brings clinicians eye-to-eye with patients to encourage communication, teaching and learning.
MINIMIZE STRAIN + STRESS
For clinicians, moving patients from bed to chair is inherently difficult due to patient limitations and the number of times these transfers are performed. Empath eases this process.
Empath dual flip-down arms allow for easy access no matter where the chair is positioned.
Convenient Central Lock
The central locking system has easy-to-activate pedals, located where clinicians need them – tucked in toward the front, on both sides of the chair.
