Not your average hospital recliner

The Nemschoff Ava Recliner is an inviting seating option for patient areas. Comfortable, compact, and mobile, it is inspired by extensive research at the core of this design. Its scale, function, flexibility, and ease of use make it a practical choice for healthcare environments. Affixed to closed casters for optimal mobility, it gives off clear visual cues for braking and steering. Available in an arcade back or wingback design.

Comfortable and comforting

In a healthcare setting, having an option to recline gives patients or guests a chance to relax, relieve stress, or just get comfortable. The Ava Recliner is designed to give comfort to both mind and body.
