MORE Options: Good, Better, Best from Stance Healthcare

Good better best

At Stance Healthcare, we believe it’s nice to have options. That’s why we offer our customers Good, Better and Best options in many categories. And, of course, each option in the category has a distinct price point.

Options for Any Budget

It just seems logical to us to give customers the opportunity to buy according to need or budget. But it’s not a common industry practise. The typical manufacturer of healthcare-specific furniture provides only one option in a category. Or they offer multiple product choices but all at one price level. And for many buyers the options are either too rich in price or too thin on quality or features.

AttessaBuying Based on the Demands of Your Unique Space

Stance customers can buy based on the demands of the particular environment in which the product will be used or based on economy. So, in these categories, we have an option for an end user that requires the most durable product available and at least two other lower-priced options for those who don’t. By the way, our good and lowest priced option in any category is still a healthcare-specific product designed and built in North America with materials manufactured in North America.

For example, we offer five metal seating lines and all at distinct price levels. In order of price, the lines include the entry level Accent Stacking Chair, Legend, Integrity, Vista II and the top of the line, Oasis. It’s nice to have options.

More Options in a Variety of Products & Materials

level-certifiedStance offers good, better and best products in a variety of categories, including wood seating, case goods, behavioral health seating, overbed tables and sleep products.
Each offering in the category is distinguished from the others by quality and price.

And we’re developing new and enhancing current products on a continuous basis. So, we’re adding more categories with good, better, best options to our line. Case in point: we have two new recliners in development to add to our Oasis Recliner.

Good, better and best options, priced accordingly, from Stance Healthcare. It’s our unique stance in the marketplace.

Polyurethane PVC-Free Fabrics for Healthcare

Polyurethane Fabrics

PVC-Free Fabric by Stance Healthcare supplier, CF Stinson.

If you buy or sell healthcare furniture, at some point you may have asked questions such as, What is a PVC fabric? What is a PVC-free fabric? And why do I need to know?

Let us answer your last question first: because you’re a pro. No, c’mon, you are. And professionals must continue to learn, and that’s what you’re doing. Look at you: learning stuff and everything.

PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride. There is some debate about the use of PVC. Claims have been made that it can lead to adverse health effects, and some end users have taken steps to limit its use. For example, ten years ago, Kaiser Permanente opted for PVC-free carpeting in all its facilities. So, a PVC-free fabric does not contain polyvinyl chloride. Now, your inquiring mind is asking, How do I identify fabrics that are PVC-free?

Identifying PVC-Free Fabrics

Look for fabrics made of polyurethane or PU. The popularity of Polyurethane as an upholstery material for healthcare applications is growing. That’s because PU is free of polyvinyl chloride. PU is also durable and supple; it breathes and has an attractive appearance.

And the environmental benefits of Polyurethane are many. It:

  • Decomposes quicker than PVC
  • Incinerates more safely
  • Emits a lower level of VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
  • It is phthalate-free (phthalates [pronounced thalates] are a group of chemicals added to plastics for flexibility and durability, aka plasticizers)

Not all PU is created equally

There are at least three kinds of Polyurethane fabrics: polycarbonate, polyether and polyester. For healthcare applications, look for PU made from polycarbonate resins. In fact, both the so-called skin and base layers of the PU should be made of polycarbonate resin.

Choose Polycarbonate PU for Healthcare Environments

Polycarbonate PU-based fabric offers the best stain resistance and cleanability. And it provides what is known as the highest hydrolysis resistance. Hydrolysis is the process by which humidity and heat degrade the cell structure of a PU, resulting in a flaking, brittle surface. (By the way, polyurethane is a polymer, and a polymer is many molecules strung together. The process of hydrolysis breaks the bonds between the molecules resulting in decay.) Even in a controlled healthcare environment, humidity and body heat can break down a poor-quality PU, over time. So, it’s wise to select a PU fabric with at least a 5-year hydrolysis rating.

Good to Know

PU is not the last word in healthcare fabrics, however. It isn’t as durable as vinyl (yet), and it’s more expensive. However, product development continues, and the durability of PU is going up and the prices are coming down.

For more, follow this link to a PowerPoint presentation from one of our suppliers, CF Stinson, that illustrates these points about Polyurethane fabrics in greater detail.

Durable Healthcare Furniture: The Stance Healthcare Symbol of Strength


In addition to mobility, functionality, and cleanability, durability is a top priority of ours when we design and manufacture a piece of healthcare furniture. We pride ourselves in designing tough healthcare furniture that dealers are proud to source, designers are confident to specify, and facility managers are pleased to put to use.

Why is durable healthcare furniture so critical?

In a healthcare environment, the durability of a piece of furniture is put to the test every single day given the higher amount of traffic and increased frequency of cleaning. Healthcare furniture has to be built to withstand not only the wear and tear of repeated use, but also the thousands of rounds of cleanings.

For us at Stance Healthcare, that means sourcing materials and designing features that enhance both the durability of the structure and the integrity of the surface finishes.

How do we measure durability?

We created the Stance Healthcare “Symbol of Strength” to denote this superior level of durability that has become synonymous with the Stance name. Products that bear this emblem come with a level of durability that goes above and beyond what is typically expected of healthcare furniture.

Each piece of furniture that earns the Symbol of Strength has met strict qualifying criteria to ensure that it performs far beyond the demands of its environment. On these products, you’ll find features such as heavy 14 gauge fully welded steel frames and high-use poly-resin that earn the Symbol of Strength name.

Which Stance Healthcare products can I find the Symbol of Strength on?

You’ll find the Symbol of Strength on many of our most popular durable healthcare furniture including these models:
