As we age, our mobility can become compromised. This can lead to challenges getting into and out of a chair, which may lead to spending longer periods of time seated. Achieving a comfortable seating position that can be easily adjusted may also become more difficult.
Riser recliner chairs offer a number of important benefits to help address these challenges and can help to promote comfort, independence and well-being.
All our chairs offer the ability to recline the backrest, elevate the footrest and raise the chair up to assist the user into a standing position.
Benefits of the recline position
There are many potential benefits of sitting in a chair with the backrest reclined and the legs raised. An ideal biomechanical position can be achieved, which can reduce strain on the spine and its associated ligaments. This in turn may help to reduce back pain and improve posture.
The tilt-in-space recline action of our bespoke chairs shifts the centre of gravity of the body, redistributing weight from the seat to the back. This can assist with the prevention of pressure ulcers (also known as pressure sores) if extended periods of time are spent in the chair. The tilt-in-space action also helps to prevent the back from sliding against the chair as it reclines, protecting the skin from friction.
Easy, one-button adjustment allows frequent and easy positional changes of the backrest and footrest to improve comfort.
Benefits of the rise function
There are a number of reasons that someone might experience difficulty getting into and out of a chair. Whatever the reason, a riser recliner chair can often provide valuable assistance in allowing someone to stand and sit safely and comfortably.
The rise function effortlessly and smoothly assists you to a standing position, removing stress and strain from the hips, legs and arms and may reduce the potential risk of falls. Sitting becomes equally easy when the chair is lowered again.
