Recliner armchairs allow you to adjust your chair into a supremely comfortable position via the use of a simple hand control. These specialist chairs can help to temporarily relieve a variety of medical complaints and significantly increase your comfort whilst sat down. In this blog post we will explore the various benefits that rise & reclining chairs can provide people with conditions such as limited mobility, swelling & arthritis.
1. People with Limited Mobility
Recliner armchairs allow you to sit down and stand up with ease, which is detrimental for people with limited mobility or who live on their own. Not only do rise and reclining chairs support you getting up and down, they also provide supreme comfort whilst you are sat down, which is especially important if due to a medical condition, you spend long amounts of time sat in your chair.
2. People with Arthritis
When you suffer from arthritis pain your joints can become tender and inflamed. As discussed previously, swelling can be improved by elevating the affected area. In addition to elevation, arthritis pain can also be relieved through massage. Our recliner armchairs can come with an inbuilt massage system which provide welcome relief to arthritis aches, pains and muscular tension.
3. People Suffering from Poor Circulation
If you suffer from swollen ankles or feet, rise and reclining chairs can offer the perfect solution to relieve the pressure and pain you experience. At the touch of a button you can elevate your affected limbs which helps to release the pressure and improve your circulation. Recliner armchairs are ideal because they remove the hassle of propping your ankle or foot up with a pillow or cushion which can become uncomfortable over time.
4. People Suffering from Back Pain
Recliner armchairs can be advantageous to people who experience back pain for a number of reasons. Firstly, they smoothly and gently lower you into a seated, comfortable position. This is especially important because as a sufferer of back pain you will understand that jerky, uncontrolled movements such as sitting up quickly or lowering yourself can worsen your pain.
Secondly the range of positions available with a riser recliner chair means that you will be able to find a position that is most comfortable for your back. For example, if your lower back is affected, you should keep your legs elevated. If you suffer from upper back pain, it is better to keep your body upright.
5. People with Breathing Difficulties
If you are one of the many people that like to have a nap in their recliner armchairs, sleeping in an upright position can help to increase your oxygen circulation during sleep. This can help reduce breathing disorders like asthma or sleep apnea.
