London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 08, 2012 -- This week I had a great trip out to High Wycombe to visit AJ Way Chairs. They have been producing chairs in the UK since 1936 and it is a great success story of British manufacturing. Most of the members of staff have worked for the company for many years and have a true passion for their product.
Although other companies have now outsourced their manufacturing to the Far East, AJ Way has stuck true to its ideals and it shows in the craftsmanship and quality of their products. I was invited along to see exactly how their chairs are manufactured. It's fascinating to see a plank of beech wood arrive at the factory and follow its journey through the many steps to becoming a high quality and well renowned AJ Way chair. It has given me an invaluable insight into why the high seat and riser recliner chairs stand out from the others in the market. Sometimes it's hard when looking at two chairs to see the difference, but having witnessed the quality of the materials they use and the techniques for manufacture it's easy to understand why these chairs last so long - there's a lot going on inside an AJ Way chair! I also had the opportunity to try out both the high seat chairs [http://www.age-enable.com/shop/chairs/high-seat-chair] and the riser recliners [http://www.age-enable.com/shop/chairs/riser-recliner-chair] and experience the different types of support and reclining actions. We're sure you will be as impressed as we are with these fabulous British made chairs.
However, it is down to every local authority to decide whether they are going to implement this new system (most have, although there are a few that have abstained) and what parameters they are going to set. Now, people are assessed and either given a prescription for an item (which they take to a pharmacy and exchange for the item - but it is then theirs to keep), or are told what items they need and that they need to purchase them.
