TPM Research transforms the way healthcare providers transport and care for patients. Our new Care Continuum Chair™ is an innovative patient vehicle ergonomically and clinically optimized for both patients and the healthcare staff responsible for moving them.
The Care Continuum Chair fills the large gap in care, rest, and transportation pre- and post-hospital bed. It is engineered to ideally interact with the human form to promote well-being, better health, and safety and radically improve patient experience and satisfaction. The Care Continuum Chair reflects the need for ideal neutral posture, long-duration seating, and anatomical support for skeletal, muscular, and tissue loading. The optimized seating “system” provides optimal comfort while more effectively supporting the user’s spine, organs, and soft tissue.
Every design innovation from TPM Research elevates the Care Continuum Chair well beyond any current patient transport vehicle available, including the lower center of gravity, powered assist lift (PAL), flush to floor footplates, and superior musculoskeletal support. Additional chair features include an ergonomically designed handle, weight-assisted rear-wheel maneuverability, more comfortable and efficient pushing, low rolling resistance wheels, a retractable IV pole, O2 tank support, on-board disinfectant, integrated baggage transport, and more.
