Individual therapy stools for your practice
There are many things to consider when setting up a physiotherapy practice. In addition to certain specifications regarding the minimum spatial requirements, there are also specifications regarding the basic equipment of a physiotherapy practice or massage practice. The basic equipment of your practice should not only ensure a comfortable working environment for you as a therapist, but also create a place where your patients feel comfortable and safe. With the right practice furnishings, you can achieve both. Find out here why it is worth buying a therapy stool and what purpose it serves.
Therapy stools for a healthy posture
Therapy stools are of great importance for the treatment of patients and facilitate everyday life in the practice. The specially shaped seat makes therapy stools well suited for daily therapy needs. The stools are designed to relieve strain on the back and allow the therapist to sit in a back-friendly manner. The height-adjustable therapy stools can be easily adjusted to the appropriate working height. Thanks to the integrated castors at the foot end, you can move freely around the treatment couch during treatment.
Quality for stability and flexibility of the therapy stools
In addition, the high-quality workmanship of the therapy stools of the HABYS® and Novak M® brands guarantees long-term use in therapy and practice. Whether you are looking for a therapy stool with or without backrest, the stools on castors are a must for every practice and can be used universally. They are particularly stable, the seat height can be adjusted as needed and they have a modern design. Depending on the model and brand, you can even match the colour of the therapy stool to your practice.
What does the basic equipment of a physiotherapy practice look like?
A well-equipped practice needs various therapy devices and corresponding accessories. The GKV Spitzenverband has laid down certain guidelines on what the basic equipment of a physiotherapy practice should look like. In addition to certain spatial requirements, the following equipment is mandatory for a practice:
- 2 height-adjustable treatment couches
- 1 foldable, transportable treatment table for home visits
- Suitable positioning aids per treatment table (e.g. neck and knee rolls)
- 1 short-time clock per treatment room
- 1 device for heat treatment/heat therapy (e.g. water bath) - Equipment for performing physiotherapy or treatment (wall bars, therapy mats, exercise equipment, etc.)
- Technical facilities for cryotherapy (e.g. cold packs)
- 1 emergency call system with acoustic signal tone in treatment areas without constant supervision of the therapist
In addition to the requirements listed above, suitable additional equipment can facilitate the daily therapy routine. Therapy stools in particular can be a great help in everyday physiotherapy.
HABYS® therapy stools
The therapy stools from HABYS® are characterised above all by their modern look. They have a chrome-plated substructure and are equipped with durable, rubberised wheels.

Novak M® therapy stools
The Novak M® therapy stools are comfortable and easy to use. The selectable backrest can help you to maintain a good posture during the treatment of your patient. Thanks to the small castors located at the foot end, flexible working and free movement around the patient's therapy couch is guaranteed at all times. The base frame is available in two versions: round or star-shaped. For comfortable working, the round base offers an optimal place for the feet to rest. The star-shaped base allows you to get even closer to the therapy couch. The leather of the seat is a high-quality artificial leather, which is particularly resistant to urine, blood, disinfectants, saline solution, UV rays, microorganisms and mould. Just like the therapy stools from HABYS®, the Novak M® stools are also height-adjustable.
