If you or someone you know suffers with mobility issues, a riser recliner can be a simple and effective way to help maintain independence in the home. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but riser recliner chairs can also help to improve posture, circulation and help you stand up and sit down with ease.
Below, we take a look at the four main benefits of purchasing a riser recliner chair.Help you stand up and sit down
Some people struggle to stand up and sit down in a normal chair. A riser recliner chair helps you to stand up and sit down both safely and comfortably, without putting too much strain or pressure on your joints. It also provides alternative sitting positions, allowing you to sit in a range of positions without having to move from the chair.Reduce the risk of pressure sores
If you sit or lie in the same position for extended periods of time, you risk suffering from pressure sores. These can be painful and take a long time to heal, along with risks of infection. When using a riser recliner, you can easily alter the position you’re sat in, helping to take pressure off different parts of your body.Keep your feet raised
When sat in a standard armchair, you are unable to lie back and put your feet up. In a riser recliner, you can extend the leg rest to lift your feet from the ground and keep them raised. Not only is this very comfortable, but it also promotes better circulation around the body too. Elevating your feet can also help to relieve any swelling in the lower legs.Made-to-measure
Riser recliner chairs can be made to measure, ensuring they fit the exact dimensions of your body. Having a riser recliner than fits the exact dimensions of your body will ensure you are as comfortable as possible when sitting or lying down. Supportive cushions can also be used to achieve maximum comfort.
