“The Optima chairs are amazing. The residents sit so comfortably in them, and they have really helped reduced our fall rates. We started using a chair on 1 resident who was a frequent faller from her chair, her falls reduced so much we decided to purchase another. The results in the reduction of falls again was amazing. The chair is not a restraint the resident can still get out of the chair, they just are so comfortable they don’t attempt to get out. We now have 4 chairs in our facility and have just ordered another. I would certainly recommend giving Optima chairs a try.” D.O.N. – Alexandria, MN
