Custom Modifications for a Longer Footrest.
Each of the Ambassador chairs is manufactured individually and not on a big production line. So custom changes have minimal impact on the overall delivery time and cost. We are able to customise the height, width, depth, cushioning, and coverings to provide you a custom-built lift & recline chair suited to your needs. The standard chair has a footrest length of 26cm and can be extended by 3cm without impacting the standing function. Should we need to add extra length to the footrest, we can increase the seat depth. Providing an overall leg extension and a seat depth of around a meter. Further custom changes can be made to the footrest with pressure care, softer and thicker foam and fabrics.
