Mobility chair features don’t have to be confusing. In this blog post, we’ll explore all the features you should look for when finding the best chair for your needs.
Once you’ve decided on the style of your mobility chair, you may want to add some of the following additional features to enhance your experience:
Mobility Chair Movement Options
All mobility chairs move in a similar way, taking you from standing to sitting in a few moments and then raising you back up again safely and easily.
There are 3 main motor types available for you to choose from:
- Single motor- Single motor mobility chairs operate the back rest and leg rest at the same time. This means that when you recline the back rest, the leg rest rises at the same time
- Dual motor- Dual motor mobility chairs operate from 2 independent motors. As a result the back and leg sections can be moved separately, giving you a wider choice of sitting positions
- Tilt in Space- This clever system allows for the entire frame of the chair to be tilted as a whole while keeping your legs and back at the same angle. This is ideal for those people who would like to move without changing the position of your body.
Mobility Chair Features For Comfort
If you find it difficult sitting or standing, different arm rests can help you control your movements more easily.
Some people find that adding wooden arm ends can make getting up and down easier. This is because they allow for a firmer, more ergonomic grip than an upholstered arm.
You may also find mobility chairs with removable arms useful. Their innovative design ensures that you can get in and out of your mobility chair easily. As a result they are particularly useful if you use a wheelchair.
There are a number of back styles that you can choose from to really enhance your comfort.
If you suffer from a back pain, then a firm back type helps ensure the correct posture to provide you with the support you need.
Alternatively waterfall or “pillow” back styles are softly supportive, shaping around your body, making it a very popular choice.
A head cushion is another great mobility chair feature to add. They make reclining even more comfortable, especially for reading or watching television.
Mobility Chair Features For Relaxation
Settle down with a good book with a built-in reading lamp. It’s the perfect way to focus with the help of some target lighting.
You may want to add a relaxing in-built massage system to your new mobility chair. The Recliner Factory massage unit is a superb system. This is because it allows, by finger-light controls, either a full sensual body massage or a concentrated massage on one of five specific areas of your body.
Mobility Chair Features For Safety
Mobility Chair Back Up Batteries
It is possible to add a battery back-up option so you will still be able to operate your recliner in the event of a power cut.
All riser recliners chairs are fitted with castors as standard, however locking castors can be opted for instead for extra piece of mind.
