Selecting The Perfect Lift Chair

lift chairs’ main purpose is to gradually lift you into an upright standing position and to ease you into a sitting position safely. Lift chairs are designed to look and feel like a regular recliner. This means the right lift chair will provide the user with maximum comfort while still complementing the decor in your home. Lift chairs are designed for maximum comfort and positioning while reducing the risk of falling. Most lift chairs provide floor space under the front of the chair to aid in the user in finding their center of gravity while standing up. Lift chairs are sturdy making them stable and reliable. Your movement will not cause your lift chair to tip over or slip in any way when being used properly.

Your Personal Requirements

There are many factors to consider when shopping for a lift chair.  You need to be certain the lift chair you select will meet your height and weight requirement. Lift chairs often time come with either two-position or three-position functionality. The difference between the two is that three-position lift chairs can maneuver into a full recline. Lift chair models like the Golden Technologies Comforter offer several positioning options which allows the client to keep the chair positioned in a way that is comfortable and perfect for them.

Lift chairs often offer additional features depending on your specific needs. Most lift chairs can be customized to your comfort level and to increase your overall enjoyment during use. Clients with Parkinson’s may enjoy the benefit of adding the massage feature onto their lift chair, which may aid in calming some tremors. Users who are suffering from arthritis/ aches and pains should consider adding on both the massage and heat features, This will help in bringing some relief during possible flair ups.

The arms of your lift chair should sit at a level where they will be able to support your weight and provide grip while the client is in a seated position. You would want a lift chair with a higher back to assist in maintaining good posture during use. Your feet should rest comfortably on the floor while you’re seated.

The Perfect Lift Chair for Your Home

While shopping for a lift chair it is important to consider your improved mobility because of your new investment. On the other hand, it is also important that your lift chair will fit into your lifestyle and with the décor in your home. Prior to purchasing, you must decide where the chair will be located within the home. It is important to consider the lift chairs distance from the wall, will it be in the way as people walk through the room, and whether it will fit in the room when it is fully reclined.
