Recovery couches are versatile

Upholstered apron couches give ill or injured people a comfortable place, not only to lie down but receive treatment if needed. This versatility is what makes first aid couches a prominent feature in many doctors' offices, sports facilities, schools and physical therapy offices. If the couch is necessary for recovery alone, the basic couch without the drawers is suitable. Check out the options with drawers or shelves to store exam room supplies or smaller physical therapy tools close by. There are both nonadjustable and adjustable headrest options available. Couches with paper dispensers add an additional layer of protection against the spread of germs between patients.

Cater to adults and children in your practice

In places that serve both adults and children, exam room furniture needs to handle a wide range of patient sizes and weights. The load capacity ranges from 250 lbs. to 300 lbs. depending on the examination couch. Some couches have the option of a width of either 24 in. or 27 in. to cater to both children and adults.

Choose colors and a style that fits in with the decor

There needs to be a balance between practicality for the health care worker and comfort for the patients. This includes making sure that the medical practice furniture fits in with the decor to provide a soothing environment. The upholstery comes in a wide range of colors. Some recovery couch frames come in various colors as well. Choose between a wooden frame, vinyl frame or a chrome-finish frame. The smooth upholstery and frames are easy to wipe down and disinfect regularly. There are minimal grooves and crevices in which dirt can become trapped.
