Ascend provides accommodation to patients and caregivers for
treatment, examination, rest, and even sleeping - all within the same
space, and without having to move the patient from the chair. With
a hand-held pendant, Ascend quickly converts to an exam table, and
back to a recliner. The patient or caregiver also uses the pendant
to adjust back and footrest position. When extended into the sleep
position, the platform height can be raised or lowered for exam use.
Optional fold down arms provides for unobstructed patient transfer with 30" wide transfer surface, and the base provides clearance
for portable patient lifts and over-bed tables. Infection control and
cleanability has been carefully considered, with seamless upholstery
between seat and back, and clearances to assist cleaning underneath
and inside the unit. Other options include removable stirrups which
are stored conveniently inside the chair, profile armrests to assist
with ingress/egress, and a Power/USB outlet. The Ascend mechanism is rated to 400 lbs. capacity, enabling bariatric utilization. The
modular construction of Ascend is a unique element as well: components that are damaged or degraded can be replaced, avoiding the
need to replace an entire unit.
Ascend contributes to quality of care through its combination of
functionality in a single unit, driving increases in efficiency for staff
and space utilization.

JURY COM M E NT S:
* This product addresses a need for exam
spaces in a way that is attractive and
functional. Most exam spaces will have
either a recliner chair or an exam table,
neither of which meet every need that
a provider may have when examining a
patient. The Ascend product is a nicely
designed chair that also happens to be an
exam table, rather than an exam table that
is attempting to be a chair.
* This product provides valuable space
savings and flexibility by reducing the
variety of furnishings; seating, sleeping,
exam. It also enables the patient to get onto
the exam table without awkwardly climbing
up onto the exam surface. This would be
particularly helpful for those patients with
impaired mobility, such as the elderly.
* The product gracefully integrates a
plethora of functions without complexity
or bulk.
* The Ascend really allows us to conceal
medical devices from view, no more
clinical looking exam table. It's a chair...
it's a table!
