Most Frequently Asked Question: Do I choose the Medicare (1 engine) or the Medicare DUO (2 engines)?

  • If the user is slightly older and simple use is essential, choose the standard Medicare as described below.
  • If the user is capable: choose the Medicare DUO (click here). The extra options are well worth the extra cost. The extra engine ensures that you can operate the foot section and backrest separately or together.

  • Upholstery: We choose a semi-leather upholstery of the "vachette" type.  This type of leather is strong & flexible to sit comfortably in the relax armchair for a long time.
         Second/Skin (TM): As standard we supply the Medicare & Medicare Mini with a Second/Skin treatment for extra stain protection. Spilled greasy and watery liquids are repelled better as a result.



We attach the relax mechanism to the frame of the armchair using screws or bolts.

Most manufacturers use screws with a diameter of 5mm. They usually use 4 screws (1 per corner) to screw the mechanism to the frame. With this diameter, the risk of breakage is already possible after 2 years.

Swiss-relax therefore uses 8 bolts (2 per corner) with a diameter of 8 mm. We use bolts instead of screws because we can fix them with more pressure.


Emergency descent

  • All armchairs are equipped with an emergency descent.
  • When the mains power fails, this stand-up chair will automatically switch to batteries.
  • Your advantage: People with reduced mobility will also be able to use the armchair safely in the event of a power cut.


The seat of the armchair contains an extremely strong pocket spring core. As a result, your seating area will always retain its shape, even after intensive use and also for heavier people.


  • Four wheels at the bottom of the armchair ensure that you can easily move it.
  • The wheels go up when using the stand-up function. As a result, the armchair is always fixed when getting out.


Importance of a strong relaxation mechanism:

We finish the Medicare (duo) on a sturdy steel frame.
