Furniture for incontinence– Part 1

Caring for residents and clients with urinary incontinence can be frustrating for staff. 

Achieving sanitation requirements, managing client comfort and preserving furniture and flooring can be difficult priorities for a busy staff.  Fortunately, there are ways to make dealing with incontinence easier through steps as easy as using furniture that is designed to make clean-ups less strenuous.  In our three part series, we will walk you through furniture construction and fabric options that can relieve the stress of even heavy incontinence issues.

  • The most recent development is pop-out seats.  In pop-out construction the seat cushion is upholstered with a solid bottom – also called a solid deck.  The solid deck, the foam core and spring unit are encased in upholstery giving the appearance of a typical seat cushion. However, the entire pop-out seat lifts easily out of the furniture frame to allow staff to mop under furniture without ever moving it.
  • Pop-out seating pieces are additionally designed with a strategic slope that aids urine and other fluids down to the floor without collection on the seat itself.
