Motorised Chairs for Intra-Vitreal Injections
The Friends have funded two fully motorised chairs, with footrests, for use with patients receiving intra-vitreal injections in Out-Patient Departments in Weston General Hospital and the South Bristol Community Hospital. The chairs are:
- more comfortable for patients and adjustable to give them better support when undergoing this fairly daunting monthly procedure;
- easy for the staff to manoeuvre & height-adjustable to avoid risk of back injury; and
- robust enough to cope with high levels of usage and should last significantly longer than similar previous chairs.
We have also funded two more of these Takagi motorised chairs as well as two autodesk workstations for use in the BEH outpatient clinics, ensuring that clinicians can use identical equipment in all eight clinics.
These grants cost £28,255.
