Hug Chair

Hug Chair is a chair cover designed to provide comfort and affection for Alzheimer’s patients.

The cover combines a cushion and two extended arms that are easily attached to the chair by a wrap-around Velcro strap. Users slide their hands into the mitten-like pockets at the end of each arm, then pull the arms around themselves, simulating the experience of a hug. The cover attaches to most common chairs, making it flexible and accommodating. Inspired by the importance of a hug in releasing emotional tension, Hug Chair offers the Alzheimer’s sufferer a familiar and dependable embrace.
