GREEN BAY, WI – Office furniture manufacturer KI has sponsored the Design Merit Award Competition at Auburn University, where students are designing a half scale model of a bariatric chair made entirely of reclaimed cardboard.

“Designing healthcare furniture requires in-depth understanding of the many issues and trends taking place in both healthcare and society. That’s particularly important when developing special use furniture such as bariatric seating,” said Debbie Breunig, RN, BSN, MBA, vice president, healthcare market, KI.
