Thera-Glide® Safety Gliders provide a relaxing gliding motion that eases tension and anxiety while its patented (Patent: US 6406095B1, CAN 2323398) automatic-locking system reduces the risk of falls.  Perfect for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care, the Thera-Glide® is a stationary chair until you are safely seated, then the lock automatically releases for a soothing glide motion.  When you exit the chair, the lock automatically engages again for a steady safe egress…it’s like getting into and out of a stationary chair. Now anyone can enjoy the benefits of a rocking chair without the risk of falling.  Whether in a home, assisted living, nursing facility or hospital labor and delivery, the Thera-Glide® is a meaningful addition to a Fall Prevention Program.
