Launching in a Transformative Era

Unveiled on June 14, 2022, Spry embodies Stance Healthcare’s commitment to innovation and excellence while directly responding to the urgent need for infection control during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It incorporates features like solid surface arm caps and 360-clean-out capabilities, setting new standards in healthcare seating.
  2. Adapting to Change: With the global pandemic irrevocably altering the healthcare landscape, the need for adaptable and cleanable furniture was imperative. Spry’s design directly responded to urgent needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on infection control and distancing to ensure safe healthcare spaces.

While Spry represents Stance Healthcare’s rapid response to the seismic shifts in healthcare brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it also embodies a forward-thinking design ethos by setting a new standard for future healthcare interiors.

With the heightened awareness brought about by COVID-19, the Spry Collection places a significant emphasis on cleanability. The metal seating design serves aesthetic purposes and facilitates ease of cleaning, which is paramount in preventing the spread of infections. 

 

       At Stance, we joke about how our robust metal seating products have been “over-engineered." Now, looking back, it was just what the world needed.
  Christy Evangelista, Stance Healthcare Manager, Marketing and Communications

 

 

The smooth surfaces, 360-clean-out capability, and thoughtful placement of fasteners ensure that every inch of the furniture is accessible and easy to clean. This attention to detail showcases Stance Healthcare's commitment to patient safety and infection control, setting a new benchmark for hygiene standards in healthcare furniture.

 

A Fresh Take on Traditional Seating Solutions

Spry’s design revolutionizes traditional seating solutions, offering a fresh perspective that aligns with the needs of modern healthcare facilities.

 

The collection’s features are meticulously crafted to address the challenges posed by the pandemic while providing a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing seating option.

 

This is not just a response to a crisis but a step towards a future where healthcare environments are safer, more adaptable, and more attuned to the needs of patients and healthcare professionals alike. 

 

Ensuring Aesthetics Align with Function & Well-being

In a study by Researchers at the Centre for Health Design, “the physical environments of healthcare facilities have immense potential to be an effective intervention for reducing and preventing the mental exhaustion of healthcare professionals.”

 

With Spry, function and well-being go hand in hand. The sleek design enhances healthcare spaces, creating a welcoming and comfortable environment.

 

         Aesthetics, in healthcare design, goes beyond the initial look of the furniture we create and has a deeper connection. For example, soft, curved shapes feel soothing - influencing the healing process.
  Cesar Fernandes, Stance Healthcare Design & Development Manager

 

 

While comfort, flexibility, cleanliness and durability are key variables to consider for healthcare interiors — we aim to create environments that deliver benefits beyond the initial look and feel.

 

In fact, this is the root of our design philosophy: empathy and a keen eye to evolve the healthcare landscape. The Spry Collection does just that, bridging the connection between patient-centered comfort and the healing process.
