As the colder, autumnal season rolls in, there’s nothing better than getting cosy in your living room. Riser recliner chairs are the perfect choice for doing just this if you have reduced mobility as you can indulge in the comfort without the worry of not being able to get on your feet again.
As well as this, there are a number of other benefits to disability furniture chairs. In this article, we’ll explore them all!
What Does a Rise & Recline Chair Do?
First of all, let’s look into what a rise and recline chair does as even though they look like a regular armchair from the outside, the functionality and features are built within.
Just like an armchair, they are designed for you to sit comfortably, however there are other options available. With the touch of a button, the bottom section of the chair will lift up to lay horizontally so you can rest your feet on it. The back rest can also be button-controlled, so it moves down and back up smoothly for optimum comfort. Finally, to help you get out of the chair, it will slowly lift from the ground and tilt forward slightly so you can safely get on your feet.
What Are the Benefits of a Riser Recliner Chair?
1. Customised to You
The beauty of riser recliner chairs is that they are made to your exact requirements. Comfort needs for one person may not be the same for another, so they are made bespoke to make sure they are comfortable for each and every user.
We are all different in size, shape, weight and height and our necessities differ alongside these factors. If a chair is too short or too tall, this can make it more difficult to get in and out of, so a chair needs to be made with your measurements in mind.
At East Coast Mobility, we take several measurements to build a chair to your specification. This enables us to provide customised comfort to you directly; plus, you can choose the back style and fabric to fit with your décor and your preferences.
2. Reduced Back Ache & Pain
Riser recliner chairs offer superb posture control which is essential in reducing back pain and discomfort. By providing support along all points of your body, these chairs give you relief from any arthritic pain and aching joints.
Moreover, getting out of your chair puts the most strain on your back and knees however, with a riser recliner, they will assist you into an almost standing position. This means there is less load on these joints, reducing the risk of further pain or discomfort.
3. Regain Your Independence
Designed to assist you with standing up or sitting down, these chairs are ideal if you want to regain your independence. If you prefer to do things by yourself and want to continue getting around with ease and comfort, you can have peace of mind that you can achieve this with a riser recliner chair.
In fact, by encouraging and supporting your independence, these chairs help prevent deterioration and improve existing postural and health issues. Consequently, users of riser recliners will stay healthier for longer and much more mobile.
4. Adjustable, Alternative Sitting Positions
Sitting in one position for a long period of time is not comfortable. This can end up making your aches and pains a lot worse, restricting your movement and leaving you sat down for longer, resulting in a vicious cycle.
With riser recliner chairs, they are completely adjustable, so you can easily change positions throughout the day and find the most comfortable one for you. From sitting upright to a slight recline, resting your feet up to lying horizontally, these chairs work around you and what you need.
5. Pressure Sores No More
Following on from the point above, sitting in one position for a long period of time can also increase the risk of pressure sores. These are extremely painful and can make the most comfortable chair, the most uncomfortable one in an instant.
Fortunately, with adjustable riser recliner chairs, the risk of pressure sores is significantly reduced. The ability to adjust the seating position as and when you need to alleviate and redistribute pressure from certain points you are leaning on makes you feel much more comfortable.
6. Improved Circulation
By making sitting down and getting back up easier, you are able to keep your body mobile and moving with ease. This improves circulation considerably which can be a common issue among those that have reduced mobility.
Poor circulation can lead to several health problems, especially those prone to low blood pressure or fluid retention. Varicose veins can be caused by fluid collecting in the lower legs when sitting down for extended periods of time. With the option to recline in these chairs, you can keep your legs raised, increasing circulation and reducing this risk.
7. Comfort, Comfort, Comfort
Upgrading your current armchair or sofa to a riser recliner chair is a serious upgrade in comfort. Comfy cushioning for the softest touch, a huge choice of colour and upholstery options to pick your favourite from, and high quality construction you can rely on.
There’s nothing that isn’t thought about when it comes to designing these chairs. Your comfort is at the forefront and that’s what the end result always reflects and delivers on. There’s no doubt why they’re sometimes referred to as relax at ease chairs.
