7 Benefits of Riser Recliner Chairs

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.

How Long Do Rise & Recline Chairs Last?

If your rise and recline chair is well-looked after, it can last for many years to come. Furniture is always built to last and riser recliner chairs are no different.

From start to finish, the service has been fantastic. From ensuring the reconditioned scooter I purchased was in top condition, to the great delivery experience through to dealing with helpful lady on the phone. I was most grateful for the non pushy sales approach - you gave me time to think. Extra information and assistance was immediately on hand. I cannot fault East Coast Mobility!

Audrey Wandsworth

Thank you so much for coming to my aid at Beccles Medical Centre. I wish we had more local businesses, and not just the internet for service.

Robert Smith

Just received my Cabin Car back after work done. The service I got was exceptional.

Not only was the work done to a brilliant standard they collected and delivered it too.

Well done East Coast Mobility! I thoroughly recommend them to anyone with mobility scooter problems.

Thank you to all the staff for a first class experience.

Caroline Long

Absolutely brilliant service, while she was very poorly my Mum's stair lift stopped working and got stuck in a doorway in a really awkward place so I called round a few places but most couldn't help very quickly.

East Coast Mobility not only told me how to move it so it wasn't in the way anymore but they also came out the following day and got it fixed with new batteries! Such a relief and all done sooo quickly.

Vinnie Harris

Great people who are very helpful. Reasonably priced and great variety of products. Highly recommend these people. Great to support a family business.

Jane Walker

It all worked out well in the end.

Karen Neil

I can't thank Grant and everyone enough at East Coast Mobility for their fantastic help in installing my stairlifts and at an affordable price beating several others I had round.

Giving me back some desperately needed independence for which I thank them with all my heart, they honestly went above and beyond.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending them to anyone that needs help or advice, they really do care.

Paul Green

I feel I must write and say a huge thank you for the service my wife and I received last week when we came to look at new scooters.

We were both very pleased with how comfortable and reliable they are and were pleasantly surprised at the professional approach we received from Grant.

Malcolm Lyell

Excellent service. We needed an engineer late in afternoon to fix my father's stairlift as he could not have got to toilet or bed that night. They left the workshop and attended within 30 mins - fault fixed!

Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Chris Bartlett

A very pleasant place to go for your mobility equipment. Staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I've used them for several years now and they have always accommodated all my disability needs.
