An elderly person could probably slide and fall from a chair if the seated position is not comfortable or steady, causing fear, pain, and discomfort.
The SAGE open Medicine journal conducted research on “seating in aged care: physical fit, independence and comfort. There are many benefits for older people in using appropriate chairs. As residents of care facilities tend to have reduced functional capacity, with mobility limitations particularly common, suitable seating design is imperative. Mobility and independence are maintained if a person is able to get in and out of a chair with relative ease, without having to wait or ask for assistance.
Additionally, appropriate seating encourages good postural stability and support while reducing pain, fatigue, venous thrombosis (VT) risk and pressure sores. Good seating may also encourage social interaction, improve respiratory function and intake of food and drink. Inappropriate seating, however, reduces independence by increasing reliance on others. Poor seating can also simply be uncomfortable, and particularly in older adults with cognitive impairments, discomfort can lead to frustration and behavioural issues.
