What is CleverComfort™?

Bringing comfort to the nation.


CleverComfort™ is a unique system of gentle ergonomic engineering, developed by HSL in partnership with an independent Occupational Therapist, drawing on almost 50 years’ experience in the science of comfort at HSL.

HSL’s unique, Occupational Therapist approved, Seven Point Posture System is one of the ways that we deliver CleverComfort™ ensuring that the chair supports you in all the right places.

The 7-point Personal Posture System

1. Bottom in the right spot

The starting point is to make sure your bottom fits snugly into the back of the seat. When your bottom touches the back of the chair, your lower back, shoulders and neck are supported correctly.

2. The right seat height for comfort

For the most comfortable chair, the seat needs to be at the correct height to support your legs and back. Your feet should be flat on the floor and your knee forms a right angle. Sitting and rising will become a lot easier in a chair that is fitted correctly.

3. Seat depth

The correct seat depth should see your calves gently touching the leg rest.

4. Getting the width right

For the correct width, make sure you can sit comfortably with your arms resting on the arm rests. Too small a gap puts pressure on your hips; too large and your shoulders aren’t supported, causing you to lean to one side.

5. Lumbar support

All backs are different, so make sure the curve in the chair follows and supports the curve of your back.

6. Keeping a level head

When the neck is supported correctly, the head is not forward or too high above the back of the chair.

7. Elbows to fingers

Your forearms, wrists and hands should be fully supported by the chair arms, so your shoulders are in their natural resting position.

  • My adjustable bed from HSL is a godsend. I’ve now purchased a riser recliner too!

    Mrs. Rogers

  • Did order a leather riser recliner chair. The staff were really good, neither pushy or slow to assist. Couldn't have been more helpful and went to great pains to ensure I had every piece of information required.

    Brenda Lees

  • I think your staff are very helpful, they greet all of their customers and made us all feel welcome and bent over backwards to make us feel at ease and made sure that we chose the right chairs.

    Mr. & Mrs. Stallard

  • Two of your consultants, Robert and Dave, visited my mother yesterday for a home consultation. We spent 2 hours trying out chairs and discussing her needs. During this period they demonstrated the utmost courtesy and patience. They were happy to give her a quote and did not try any hard sale either! What a brilliant service.
