Choosing the Right Rise Recliner

Mobility | Dignity | Independence

Finding a cosy place to sit down and relax is very important, and that brings chairs into focus. We all know about chairs.  You might have one or two favourites. All chairs give you some support, but think about the following questions.

  • Do you need extra support?
  • Do you sit in the same chair for long periods?
  • Do you find it difficult to sit down or get up?

If it is difficult to sit down and stand up, you may need a rise recliner.

Do you have someone to help you up & down all day? If you don't (and can’t get comfortable) you may end up staying in bed.

Some people even find they can no longer stay in their own home. Getting the right chair can help keep you independent.

If you find it hard to sit down or stand up, here are a few things you can do to help.

  • Practise your technique – consult your Occupational Therapist or your Physio
  • Sit higher
  • Use a Rise - Recliner

A Rise Recliner or Lift Chair, as it is called these days, are good in two ways:

  • The rising action helps you sit down and stand up.
  • The reclining action can make you more comfortable, especially if you are sitting down for a lot of the day. This can also help with some medical problems.  Check with your medical professional what is good for you.

There are a lot of factors to consider before buying a rise recliner. Here are a few:

  • How many motors? This is very important to serve your needs for long term.
  • Fabric, Leather or Vinyl?
  • What size? Don’t get lost in a too huge a chair or get tied to a too small one.
  • The carrying capacity of the Chair?
  • Does it have a battery back-up in case of an emergency?
  • Does it have a head rest?
  • Do you need a side pocket?
  • How easy are the controls?
  • On which side is the control?

It is important to sit on one and try before you buy. Don’t forget to ask about the Warranty!
