If you or a loved one is finding it to be an increasing struggle each time you go to sit or stand from your chair, then a lift chair could be the perfect addition to your home. Imagine having a chair that can help lower you into the seat or assist you into the standing position. Now imagine it look as comfortable and modern as any piece of furniture in your home. It’s the perfect combination between the functionality of a home medical device and a comfortable, aesthetic design that would make anyone proud to have it as an addition to their living room.
If you’re interested in investing in a comfortable lift chair, here’s everything you need to know about life chairs, chairlifts, and recline chairs.
What exactly is a lift chair?
To the unsuspecting eye, a lift chair looks like a modern, plush, comfortable reclining armchair – perfect for curling up with a good book, taking an afternoon nap, or sitting back and watching the Leafs game. But underneath that aesthetic appeal is the medical functionality that can truly help to make your life that much easier. Embedded in the chair is an electrically powered mechanical lift the can help gently and comfortably lower an individual into the chair. When it’s time to get up, the lift can gradually helps raise the person until they are in the standing position. All of this can be operated with the simple press of a button.
In addition to a two-position lift chair with standing and sitting positions, three-position lift chairs can be set to any position for maximum comfort. So for those who enjoy that extra degree of relaxation, it’s the perfect combo. In addition, you have the option of selecting a design with infinite positions (MaxiComfort), allowing more control of footrest and backrest.
Who are lift chairs suitable for?
Anyone suffering from any loss of mobility, or joint pain, whether it’s from an operation, medical condition and simply old age.
