Using smart design to fight infections and save lives.
Each year, 3 million people across North American acquire an infection during a hospital stay. Sittris is an innovative hospital seating system designed to address significant healthcare issues: infection control, worker health and safety and patient comfort and dignity. The centrepiece of the system is the seat shell, upholstered in anti-microbial silicone, which can be configured with a range of bases and arms. The unique cut away shape of Sittris allows healthcare staff to easily lift and attend to patients while facilitating convenient access for catheters and IV’s.
