Why choose SYSTM?

SYSTM disassembles for complete deep cleaning. This delivers superior hygiene compared to standard chairs, where the seat well can never be pristinely clean.

Nothing is more disheartening than seeing brand new,
beautifully designed furniture, in particular upholstered chairs and couches, become damaged and soiled within months, even weeks.

  • Chairs can’t be properly cleaned, so they are not hygienic.
  • Replacement or reupholstery is often beyond budget.
  • Residents are left with a less than satisfactory environment.

Like the Royal Commission into Aged Care, enhancing the well-being and quality of life of people in aged care is our driving force.

We decided we could do better

We developed a better solution by working with the smartest industrial designers, university academics, and colleagues in the aged care sector. SYSTM removes the need for furniture replacement early in the chair’s life. Every chair has design parameters applied based on a series of considerations founded on academic research.

Why we made SYSTM

Australian-owned family business LifeCare Furniture has been making quality furniture for more than 30 years.

When founder and director Ian Reinhardt began working with high care environments many years ago, he was appalled by the quality of furniture being used. He recalls deep-seated lounge chairs difficult to get out of, upholstered in velvet, worn and stained. The indignity of what Ian observed spurred him on to make a difference in the aged care furniture sector.

SYSTM is the evolution of his life’s work.

Designed to look like pieces that could belong in your own home, with the ideal dimensions for aged care, SYSTM provides residents optimal comfort and independence by paying attention to every detail. This revolutionary design sets a new standard and offers a better experience for residents and carers alike.

We can do better. Everyone can do better.

SYSTM's range has everything you need

Rigorous R&D is the spine of every SYSTM product we create

SYSTM works because we have the research to back it up. It’s not a guessing game. We invest in quality research to ensure our products are the best they can be.

We commissioned a study with the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) into seating in aged care. The study found that the main issues for residents were chairs that were dirty and unsightly, and a lack of choice in their living environment.

We set our sights on changing that. That change is SYSTM.

It just makes sense. With an innovative design that dismantles for thorough cleaning, why would you continue to put up with unhygienic, expensive, and wasteful chairs? SYSTM is the best option for residents and staff alike. Both get a better standard of life, living and working in a more hygienic and comfortable environment.

Why would you want it any other way?
