Movi adjustable chairs are intended for patient transport, to assist with transport between locations that patients otherwise find difficult to do or be unable to do without assistance.  Movi Medical approached the design of a new patient transport vehicle from a totally different perspective. Our new patient transport chairs are more ergonomically optimized, for both patients and the hospital staff responsible for moving them. Through close collaboration with one of the four largest academic medical centers in the US, Movi is changing the way patients and the health care industry looks at patient transport vehicles and patient room furniture. 

Movi is designed around the human form; it’s built to promote comfort, improved posture and safety.

Patients can stand with less effort, and stress on staff is reduced when assistance is required. Foot plates rest flat and flush to the floor during transfer, eliminating the bending efforts required by staff when dealing with conventional footrests.

In addition, the powered drive system used for lifting also enables health care staff to place the patient into a comfortable and secure range of semi-reclined transit positions. Movi's seating position has a low center of gravity providing great stability and high comfort levels while promoting neutral spinal posture. 

Additional features include an ergonomically designed handle which is adjustable to be comfortable and efficient to push, low rolling resistance wheels, and built in features including an IV pole, O2 tank support and over seven cubic feet of integrated storage.
