Riser Recliner Chairs For The Elderly

Which Riser Recliner Chairs are the most beneficial for the elderly and disabled? And the Riser Recliner Chairs The Recliner Store recommend?

Riser recliner chairs are now used by thousands of elderly and disabled people in the UK and are incredibly beneficial for those with mobility issues and joint aches and pains, often the fact you can easily change the chairs seating position can bring pain relief.

Buying a Riser Recliner Chair can appear to be a bit of a minefield for those purchasing for the first time so here at The Recliner Store we have put together a simple guide to help you find the Best Riser Recliner Chair for you.

Riser Recliner Chairs Have Many Benefits

  • Recliner Chairs of this type will raise your legs and feet, they will also safely lift you to make standing the easiest thing imaginable.
  • You can stop the angle of the footrest at any point, easing pressure on muscles and joints.
  • Raising your legs and feet has health benefits, such as reducing swelling on your feet and legs.
  • Those who struggle to get out of a chair also struggle to get into a chair and tend to drop into the chair. By leaving the chair in the upright position you can now perch on the chair and gently lower yourself down.

Dual Motor Riser Recliner Chair verses Single Moto Riser Recliner Chair

There are basically 2 types of Riser Recliner Chair…Single Motor and Dual Motor.

Single Motor Riser Chairs

On these single motor riser recliner chairs, one single motor controls all the functions on the chair. The footrest, the back and also the riser system. Whilst this means you will only have 2 buttons on the handset and the price is less than a dual motor chair there are limitations to the help it will give you.

The drawback is that you cannot adjust the back of the chair to your optimum angle and then adjust the footrest independently to the back.

Dual Motor Riser Chairs

As described, a Dual Motor Riser Recliner is where two motors control the chair. An independent motor operates the backrest whilst the other motor operates the footboard and riser function. Each of the motors has separate buttons and the handset is clearly marked to show you what the buttons do.

With the Dual Motor Rise and Recline Chairs, the user has more flexibility in determining a position that they find comfortable. This flexibility makes Dual Motor Chairs a very popular chair for elderly and disabled users.
