With patented Biometric Repositioning, SEDEO ERGO seating is designed for effective independent repositioning throughout the day. Moving in or out of recline can cause the user to slide out of an optimal posture. SEDEO ERGO moves from reclined to a seated position by first passing through a transitional tilted position to use gravity to realign the pelvis in a smooth, effortless motion. Biometric Repositioning envelopes the body and ensures the pelvis is properly positioned. SEDEO ERGO is available with C-Me to drive up to 3 mph while elevated.

Available in two sizes for clients up to 6'2" tall.
