Health benefits of a riser recliner chair

More often than not, people are increasingly seeing problems with standing up and sitting down, whether due to our changing lifestyles, short-term and long-term medical conditions, such as arthritis, back pain, and temporary injuries. Many tools have been created to assist with the daily living needs of those who need assistance in dealing with these conditions, as well as supporting those who would like increased independence and mobility.

Riser recliner chairs are one of those tools. Those who suffer from medical conditions affecting their daily living or mobility are increasingly being offered a riser recliner chair to support them, whether through an Occupational Therapist, or going directly to a retailer. Let’s take a look at the health benefits that a riser recliner chair can provide.

Made to measure riser recliner chairs provide maximum comfort

When it comes to health conditions, any old piece of furniture from your local shop won’t cut it. They are not made with you in mind, and thus can often cause more problems than they solve, as they don’t provide a comfortable position that aids the problem it is supposed to be solving. With made to measure riser recliners, measurements are taken and the chair is built to match your sizing requirements, which helps to ensure you’re sitting comfortably, but also that the areas affected are receiving the support they need.

Relief of aches and pains

No-one likes to have to deal with aches and pains, especially when sitting down. An advantage of a riser recliner chair is that it can provide the correct posture required, which helps to relieve a host of aches and pains that are experienced throughout life, including:

  • Aching joints
  • Arthritis pain
  • Back pain

As a result of our riser recliner chairs being made to measure, the correct posture is created which allows the chair to aid in the relief of aches and pains. In addition to delivering optimum posture, recliner chairs also assist through movement. Various mechanisms are available to support mobility, reducing aches and pains normally experienced while moving, and aid daily living, such as:

  • Single motor tilt-in-space
  • Dual motor tilt-in-space
  • Dual motor
  • Wall-hugger mechanism

Increased independence

Those with medical conditions that affect mobility often feel like they’re dependent on others. With a riser recliner chair, this dependence is reduced. The movement mechanisms help to allow the user of the chair to move forwards, backwards, as well as up-and-down, delivering improved mobility, and reducing the reliance on others.
