Benefits of Using a Lift Chair

Posted on

A lift chair is an electric powered armchair allowing the user to adjust it to safely lower themselves into a seated position, or lift them into standing. This mechanism alleviates the strain and pressure that can come from getting in and out of a chair, and makes users less dependent on others for assistance.

We carry a variety of lift chairs, also known as recliner chairs, and so here is a look at some benefits and specific chair highlights.

Reduces Risk of Pressure Sores

Staying in the same seated or lying position for extended periods of time can lead to pressure sores, which can be extremely painful and take a long time to heal with risks of infection. A lift chair provides the option to alter your position easily, taking pressure off various parts of the body.

Increases Independence

More than just the basics of helping with getting in and out of a seat, a lift chair improves circulation. Since it is easy to shift positions at the touch of a button, this helps to prevent stiffness, by promoting a range of movement in joints and muscles. With less stiff muscles and joints comes increased mobility, and increased independence.  

Improves Circulation

Swelling and circulation issues can often present when seated for a long time, especially for people prone to low blood pressure or fluid retention. When the legs are lower than the rest of the body all the time, fluid can collect in the lower legs leading to swollen ankles and blood can pool around the calves, leading to varicose veins. A lift chair lets the user keep their legs raised, aiding in healthy circulation and reducing swelling.

Helps with Sleeping

While it’s not recommended to sleep only in a recliner chair, it can be better sometimes than just sleeping in a bed. A lift chair may help with several sleep-related conditions, such as snoring, sleep apnoea, and asthma. This is because having the head elevated can help increase airflow to the lungs, thus reducing the severity of some symptoms.

Lift Chairs are Comfortable!

Setting aside all the medical benefits of using a lift chair, they are just very comfortable and enjoyable to use. They are available in a range of different styles and configurations, but their common theme is the superior comfort offered. High-quality fabric, no painful pressure points, comfy cushioning and perfectly supported posture combine to make lift chairs the most comfortable seating you’ll find.
