Select BioFit Seating and Accessories Now Comply with Healthier Hospitals Initiative Standards

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 12, 2019 - BioFit Engineered Products, a global leader in the design and manufacturer of technical ergonomic seating solutions, announced this week that they offer a comprehensive selection of seating and adjustable footrests compliant with Healthier Hospital Initiative guidelines. Established by Practice Greenhealth, a health care membership organization which provides sustainability solutions, Heathier Hospitals encourages manufacturers to provide information on furniture and fabrics that meet the Healthy Interiors Safer Chemicals Challenge objective of reducing or eliminating harmful chemicals within their products.

BioFit products that meet the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) criteria include a wide selection of upholstered and non-upholstered models from the company’s MVMT and Foundation seating lines as well as two adjustable footrests. Pertinent models represent a cross section of BioFit’s most popular seating series and were chosen to meet the unique requirements of specific healthcare and medical facility workspaces, including examination, laboratory, x-ray, office, registration, nurses’ stations, ER, OR, task, multipurpose and heavy use applications. In addition to meeting HHI guidelines, all models are fully ergonomic and easy to clean, and nearly all are backed by a 13-year warranty.

Upholstered models are available in seven selections each from two Stinson HHI-compliant, non-PVC upholstery collections, or, in the customer’s own material. However, customers are responsible for the treatment and chemical content of their own upholsteries to ensure HHI compliance.

“Customer and environmental welfare are top priorities at BioFit, which is why we offer products compliant with Healthier Hospitals [HL Healthier Hospitals guidelines,” explained LouAnn Evans, BioFit Vice President of Sales and Marketing. She continued: “From day one, our products have been designed, tested and proven to support user wellbeing through comfort and ergonomics.
