Who doesn’t enjoy spending a relaxing afternoon on the couch with a good book or watching a movie? What isn’t enjoyable, is that stiff or sore feeling you can experience when you get up after sitting for a long period of time.
If you have back issues, reduced mobility or recently had surgery, getting in and out of a chair or off the couch can be even more difficult, painful and even cause further damage or injury.
Lift and Recline Chairs are a great solution. They are comfortable, easy-to-use and allow you to remain independent and enjoy some much-needed down time in your daily routine.
What is a Lift and Recline Chair?
Lift and Recline Chairs are similar to regular recliner chairs, except they also have an electric motor in the base. This motor assists with transitioning the user from a seated to a standing position. With the simple click of a button from an attached remote, the chair gently lifts and tips the user forward, enabling them to step out of the chair with ease and comfort.
What are the Benefits of Lift and Recline Chairs?
There are several health and therapeutic benefits of using Lift and Recline Chairs:
1. Reduces Strain & Optimises Comfort
The main advantage of Lift and Recline Chairs is that they reduce strain on your body by assisting you to transfer in and out of the chair more easily. The level of recline can also be adjusted to suit individual needs providing optimum comfort for when you want to have a nap, watch TV or read a book.
2. Prevents Falls & Reduces Carer Injuries
The easy to use remote controlled tilt function of Lift and Recline Chairs helps to prevent falls by allowing you to be in full control of the seating and standing process. As the chair lifts up, the arm rests provide extra support for you to hold onto until your feet feel stable and you are steady enough to stand alone.
This in turn helps your carer as you can rely on the chair for support and minimise the risk of muscle strains or back injuries, most often experienced when assisting you to get in and out of traditional chairs and recliners.
3. Promotes Circulation
Lift and Recline Chairs can be adjusted to elevate your feet which promotes healthy circulation by keeping blood and oxygen flowing through your legs, feet and body. This can help reduce swelling, fluid retention and reduce the risk of developing varicose veins.
4. Aids Recovery from Injuries
If you’re recovering from an injury or surgery, standing up and sitting down can become difficult. The ergonomic design and structural support of Lift and Recline Chairs helps to aid recovery by reducing pressure on your body, providing full spine support and a multitude of positions for your personal comfort.
5. Supports Good Posture
Lift and Recline chairs are ideal for people with spinal curvatures such as Kyphosis or Lordosis as they offer effective posture support. Unlike regular chairs, which can be harsh on your muscles and joints, Lift and Recline Chairs can reduce lower skeletal joint fatigue and degeneration and help maintain muscle tone.
