Simple and effective relaxation therapy for the most fragile patient groups Being immobile and permanently bedridden is challenging. Not just physically, but also mentally. Research in the care sector has shown that rocking movements provide an effective and non-medical treatment that can bring calm (to people with activity disturbances), reduce anxiety and increase quality of life for the most fragile and physically disabled patient groups. The new bed rocker from Wellness Nordic can help - without subjecting care staff to physical strain. People with e.g. dementia, ADHD and with Autism Spectrum Disorders can also benefit from the rocking bed therapy. By lying in their own bed, they can experience deeper relaxation and both physical and mental well-being as part of their sleep and sleep preparation.
Practical accessories for everyday use Several accessories are available for the chair to make everyday use easier, such as armrests which can be mounted on wheels, and an incontinence cover which is easy and convenient to use and clean.

Research studies of Rocking chairs show measurable increase in well-being in people suffering from dementia
American publication ‘American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias® (AJA) is aimed at professionals working with Alzheimer’s care, dementia and clinical depression. The study was conducted over a 2 year period in a care facility that specialized in the care of elderly dementia patients. Participants were between 72 and 95 years old and were divided into study groups according to specific criteria, such as diagnosed dementia.
The Wellness Nordic Rocking ChairImproved quality of life without the need for medication
The study showed that after a session of rocking therapy dementia sufferers felt less anxious, less depressed and more balanced. The rocking chair therapy also proved to be a promising innovative method for improving quality of life for care facility residents without having to rely on medication. The current study shows that care of the elderly can easily benefit from introducing rocking chairs. The use of rocking chairs is safe and practical and provides both relaxation and mental and physical support.
