For those with limited mobility, or who have difficulty staying comfortable sitting in a conventional recliner, a lift chair can provide much-needed relief.
A lift chair does just what the name suggests: it rises to support during the sitting motion, making it much easier to bend at the knees and the hips. Need to get out of the chair? The lift chair will adjust to assist in standing again.
Lift chairs also have functions to recline at varying angles, helping those recovering from surgery or who have other injuries that make it difficult to sleep horizontally. They also adjust to elevate the legs for those with circulation issues.
The benefits of using a lift chair are more diverse than simply offering assistance to sit and stand, however.
Some chairs offer heat and massage features, providing therapeutic relief for those with back and neck pain, joint pain, arthritis, and a host of other conditions that require circulation stimulation.
Added bonus: despite all of the extra features, lift chairs often look just like any other recliner. They’re not bulky or unattractive in your living room!
If you decide to purchase or rent a lift chair, there are a few questions to ask to assist in choosing the right chair for you:
There are plenty of other things to consider when choosing a Lift Chair. You’ll need to measure the space to fit your chair appropriately. You can even share information with a specialist about your current recliner (if you have one you’re replacing) to keep you comfortable!
