Product Testing

When we develop a new chair, we carry out extensive user trials to ensure it works safely, easily and logically. Our chairs are also tested by an internationally recognised test house for strength, stability and durability.


The CareFlex Testing Process:

Stage 1

The testing starts as soon as the chair is taken out of the box. Our User Instructions are
assessed to see how well the chair can be set up and used safely. The chair is checked over
for pinch points and finger traps to safeguard against injury.

Then the heavy stuff starts…

Stage 2

This is a three-part process which involves checking the chair for stability, durability and
resistance to impact.

1. Stability tests check that the chair will not tip over in day-to-day use. The chair is tested
under extreme conditions, such as with the legrest fully elevated and the back fully tilted
or reclined before maximum user weight loads are applied.

The chair must remain stable throughout these tests.

2. Durability tests replicate years of constant use. They help to measure what effect fatigue can
have on the structure and operation of the chair. Because specific standards relate to use in
different environments, for example high wear areas such as nursing homes, the testing
machine applies up to 200,000 maximum user weight loading cycles to the seat and back.

3. Resistance tests focus on the structure of the chair. Each chair is tested for strength, the
ability to resist impact and extreme exerted forces to the arms, seat, legrest and back.

In addition to strength, stability and durability tests, the components and materials used in our
chairs are monitored so that they comply with the relevant standards for fire retardancy,
biocompatibility and safety requirements for electrical components used in medical devices.

Once our chairs have passed these tests, we can be confident that with the right care and
maintenance they will provide years of trouble-free service.

Happy Customers

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”
