WEST CHICAGO, Ill., July 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Norix Introduces New Prodigy Furniture Line for Behavioral Health Environments
Norix, Inc., has introduced its new Prodigy collection of furniture designed for residential and inpatient behavioral health facilities. Building on the success of its Attenda furniture line, originally introduced in 2007, the Prodigy collection features bedroom furniture designed to humanize challenging environments of inpatient and residential behavioral health facilities.
The Prodigy line features a proprietary TruGrain™ wood-grain texture and natural color variability that emulates the look and feel of home furnishings, but with the durability and safety necessary for healthcare.
"We know that comfort and familiarity can be helpful for residents of behavioral health facilities," said Scott Karl, President and CEO of Norix, Inc. "With the new Prodigy line, we enhance the sensory experience and the reassurance of a home setting without sacrificing the need for safety, durability and the ability to be sanitized."
The Department of Veterans Affairs' Mental Health Facilities Design Guide (2010) recommends "design approaches that incorporate home-like, non-institutional and patient-centered environments that imbue healing, familiarity, and a sense of being valued" to improve patient outcomes. By emulating the look and feel of home furnishings, the Prodigy line helps make the challenging environment of behavioral health facilities more conducive to patient health.
The Prodigy collection features concealed hardware, rounded edges, and an anti-ligature design. Because it can be installed flush to the walls, it provides added security from being contraband-resistant and tamper-resistant. The Prodigy collection includes options for a platform bed, open chest, desk, and nightstand, all made with recycled materials and is fully recyclable. Its non-porous, one-piece assembly is designed for easy cleaning and can withstand frequent bleach cleaning or hospital-grade disinfectants for infection control.
For more than 35 years, Norix has designed robust furniture that meets the real-world need for humanizing challenging environments. We pride ourselves in creating products that serve the healthcare, higher education, shelter and corrections industry in ways that make those environments safe and secure.
