Everyone wants to be able to feel comfortable and relax in their own home. However, some people, such as the elderly, disabled, or injured, have difficulty relaxing in standard chairs or couches due to the severe discomfort getting in or out of the seats or simply sitting in one position for an extended period of time causes them. It’s terrible that many live with the feeling that they will be in severe pain if they simply try to sit down in their living room to watch television in the evenings. Fortunately, lift chair recliners offer a simple solution for any such individual who continuously feels significant discomfort in regular chairs.
Lift chairs are comfortable, plush seats that are designed to enhance relaxation comfort for elderly, disabled, or injured individuals with limited mobility or chronic pain. They do not stand out in homes, as they look virtually the same as any armchair you might purchase at a local furniture store and are available in an incredibly wide variety of colors, styles, and materials just like any other chair. However, these special chairs are equipped with several features that set them apart from a standard armchair or reclining sofa and make them an excellent choice for any individual whose comfort needs cannot be met by regular relaxation seating.
Lift chairs are different from regular armchairs because they are designed specifically to move into multiple positions to make getting in and out of the chair easier as well as to make sitting in the chair more comfortable. The user can change positions while getting in or out of or while sitting in the lift chair by pushing buttons on a simple hand control attached to the side of the chair. The common feature of lift chairs is their ability to shift up from the back into an elevated position that allows an individual to lower themselves into the chair and stand up out of it more easily. This position also makes it easier for elderly, injured, or disabled individuals with a more severe lack of mobility to transfer themselves into or out of the lift chair from a wheelchair.
Different lift chairs include varying other positions. Some include more than others; lift chair recliners can recline all the way back so the user can lay down flat in the chair to rest or even sleep, or they can recline partly so the user can watch television or read in a relaxed position that relieves stress on the neck. Oftentimes, lift chair recliners will also be equipped with a variety of special neck and head pads in order to further enhance the comfort of the user. Furthermore, in order to further enhance the comfort of the user, lift recliners are generally available in a variety of heights and weight capacities so people of varying sizes can purchase the chair that best fits their unique specifications.
Lift chairs offer an incredible solution to many of the comfort and pain problems that plague an abundance of individuals every day, allowing those who normally experience severe pain while moving to achieve the relief and relaxation they deserve.
