This is where a recliner chair hire, North Devon’s First Choice mobility can offer comes in to save the day. The beauty of the rise and recline chair is its simple comfort factor, as well as offering you greater independence.


There are also a number of reasons why a riser recliner could be the solution you are looking for when mobility issues are something that you live with. Take a look and see the benefits here:


Benefits of Reclining

Reclining chairs are a good option for people who are looking for some extra comfort. This is because they let allow you to have your feet up while you lie back for a rest in a comfy place that isn’t your bed. What’s more, you can also get yourself comfortable in a number of different positions depending on what you’re doing in your chair, for example, watching TV, reading, or doing some knitting etc.


Should you be in a sitting position for extended periods, a recliner is good in that it provides the opportunity to keep changing your position with ease, therefore preventing you from becoming sore and/or uncomfortable. If you are living with medical issues that relate to your legs, a recliner chair can assist in lifting your legs up when you’re in a sitting position.


Additional Points

  • Leg rests support the whole length of your leg
  • Recliners are good for anyone looking to lie back with their legs out straight, if you want, although it is advised you don’t sleep in your chair regularly.
  • Tilt space is an essential element of a recliner chair as it provides relief of pressure and soreness. (This is available on selected models only).


Benefits of a Rising

Essentially, every riser recliner chair works on the same premise: press a button on the hand control and this will activate the seat and arms to gradually raise up with you in the seated position until you are able to stand with ease.


When it comes to sitting back in the chair, the same principles apply, only in the opposite direction. You position yourself on the raised seat before pressing the correct button which will then ease you down slowly and surely.


Always keep your hands on the arm rests, for stability purposes, and follow any other steps our staff advise because when the seat tips forward as well as going up – to help you get out – it can occasionally be tricky if you have weak legs or difficulty controlling them. There are some chairs that can be set up to go straight up without tipping, although this is something you would need to discuss with our advisors in store.


We hope that this has helped you understand a little bit more about the benefits you can enjoy when it comes to using a rise and recliner chair for improved quality of life. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us today on 01271 859144.
