Antibodies in blood plasma could be the method of choice to help corona patients. So on April, 4th, for example the National Epidemic Preparation Committee of Qatar called on people who have recovered from coronavirus (COVID-19) in Qatar to donate plasma to help cure patients with the severe form of the infection. Donating plasma can therefore help save lives. As the DRK (German Red Cross) confirms, this could be true of the coronavirus pandemic: "People who have been cured of the COVID-19 disease have antibodies that could protect them from becoming ill again from SARS-CoV-2. By donating plasma, antibodies can be passed on to sick people and can have a life-saving effect like a passive vaccination." In all cases we can anticipate sustained strong demand on helpful chairs.
GREINER chairs make their mark in many clinics and donation centres. They meet both the requirements with regards to patients' well-being, as well as the requirements of individual facilities with a variety of equipment versions. In doing so, they are not only visually appealing, but also fit seamlessly into almost every clinic design.

As a manual chair version, the MULTILINE BPS offers a perfect price-performance ratio. For the nursing staff, the lying surface can easily be adjusted manually as one piece from sitting position to relaxing position to shock position. The comfort armrests made of integral foam form a large trough and can be directionally adjusted with the help of a ball-bearing all around and by up to 35° inclination. When seated, they can be swivelled backwards, which makes it easier to get seated, allowing the patient to access the chair without hassle.
In addition to donating blood and plasma, there are even more sophisticated therapies in this field. This is where the MULTILINE NEXT IT comes into play as a compact therapy chair: This chair convinces with easy manoeuvrability, low space requirements, ergonomic armrests, accessories for infusion and oxygen supply, as well as high efficiency in hygiene, exactly there, where the number of qualitative blood sampling stations has to be increased in a short period of time due to an increased number of COVID-19 cases. This flexibility ensures that it can be used for infusion and transfusion medicine after the pandemic is over.
