Getting started with Rise & Recliner Chairs
If you suffer from mobility problems such as arthritis and back pain, and spend a lot of time in an armchair, you may find it difficult to get in and out of your chair. A riser recliner chair can help you.
Riser recliner chairs are of proven benefit to those with medical conditions such as arthritis and circulation problems. There are manual reclining chair models which as the name suggests are operated by hand rather than electricity. The manual chair has a lever on the side which operates the chair. These might not be suitable for some people, depending on their needs.
Electric lift chairs rise up so that the user just needs stay almost stood up, and then perch on the edge of the chair and then use the handset to lower the chair into the right seating position. Depending on the model of chair, the footrest will come up automatically so that the body and legs are correctly supported. When you want to get out of the chair, simply use the handset to raise the chair to the standing position again, and get off. The nature of the disability is likely to play a part in deciding which lift chair to choose.
