Made to Fit - because your comfort needs are unique

Whether you need a riser recliner for mobility, health conditions, or simply to enjoy leaning back and putting your feet up at the end of a long day, there are several benefits to having your chair ‘fitted’ to your size, body shape and weight. Why? Because we’re all different aren’t we? Different heights, different length of legs, weight!

Enjoy Sitting Perfectly Supported Comfort

Sitting down causes a number of stresses in our bodies, especially our spines, and this has recently begun to be more recognised by health professionals. It is the main reason for the sudden boom of rise and recliner chairs is because as a result there are many rise and recliner chairs on the market but few are made to fit. A fitted chair has been designed to best support your body, including considerations like posture, comfort, support and health.

How long do you spend seated?

There are serious health implications of prolonged sitting, and why this is a cause for concern for those who spend more than thirty hours sitting. If you have a condition, then there could be significant benefits to selecting the right rise and recline movements and chair style.

7 Point Seat Fitting Consultation

Choice is about ensuring that you select the right combination of chair style, seat cushion, rise recliner mechanism and having the chair built to your specific dimensions. The correct size of chair will ensure that you purchase a riser recliner that truly delivers personal comfort for you, because you are unique.

1. Seat Depth - to ensure your thighs are well supported

2. Seat Height - good posture requires your feet to be placed firmly on the ground

3. Back Height - important if you have back issues, neck, spinal or vertebrae problems

4. Back Support - back cushion selection will help with your posture and comfort

5. Seat Width - the correct width will help to support your hips and arms

6. Seating Support - your weight’s important and is critical to the cushion selection

7. Elbow Height - arms should be able to rest comfortably on the armrest

The measurements ensure your new chair is set-up for you based on your body shape, size and dimensions. Whilst considering any healthcare medical problem affecting your comfort.

All riser recliner chairs follow a similar movement cycle, from standing to upright (sitting) and then back to full recline with leg elevation, and back again. This is why we recommend you get a professional 7 point seat fitting.

Huge Range of Fabrics including Teflon™ Stain Guard Option

Fabrics to compliment your home styling and comfort needs

Rise and Recline understand your home styling and personal preference on fabrics to compliment your decor is important. Which is why we offer a huge range of the finest upholstery fabrics for your handmade furniture. All sourced from reputable upholstery mills, you can have almost any fabric, from standard domestic, right through to leathers and specialist healthcare fabrics.

Teflon™ Stain Guard Option

Teflon™ textile finishes work like a shield for clothes and other fabrics, forming a protective barrier around each fiber to repel water, dirt, and stains. The fabric mill/finisher applies these invisible finishes, which do not interfere with the fabric's weight, look, feel, color, or breathability.

The Teflon™ portfolio of finishes includes two main products:

Teflon™ fabric protector

This product imbues treated textiles with water- and oil-based stain repellency, ground-in stain release, or both.

Teflon EcoElite™ renewably sourced finish

This is the first biobased finish to feature 60% biobased raw materials. It also repels water and water-based stains.

What’s shown here is simply to highlight the choice available, however we would highly recommend visiting one of our mobility stores for your selection, as you can then see and touch the fabrics before deciding.
