Power Recliners: A Must-Have For Some Of Our Fellowmen

By Maddox D. Shimp

Have you noticed some differences between the chairs before and some of the chairs we have now? Some of our modern chairs have a lot more to offer today than just being a piece of furniture that you can sit on. A little adjustment can make it as an alternative to a bed. Add a few twists and turns and it can be your effective fitness equipment. Perhaps another example of the new breed of chairs we are currently having is the so-called power lift recliner.

Power recliners are extremely important especially to individuals who find it hard to get out of the chair. Instead of making these people sit on a regular chair, have them sit on a power recliner. The difference of these power recliners from the regular chairs is that the former can be controlled usually through a push of a button to lift its (the chair’s) whole body up from the base and make it slightly tip to the front. This process allows the struggling individual to stand up from the chair a bit more easily and less painfully.

That type of chair is perfect for someone who has suffered from an injury in the leg or feet areas and is still recovering. This just means that aside from not being able to walk normally, there’s also that tendency to feel some pain when trying to get out of a regular chair. This agonizing scenario may also occur to a person who is recovering because s/he underwent a leg or knee surgery. They should be provided with lift chairs and not the regular ones.

Someone recovering from a leg injury or surgery For those folks who had a leg injury, standing up from a chair can be extremely painful and even with the use of a walking stick or cane, it can still be difficult. With power recliners, at least the struggle is being lessened. This is also true for those who had just undergone some surgery involving their legs or feet.

Perhaps the perfect examples of lift chair users are none other than our beloved elderly brothers and sisters. This is why you can see a lot of those types of chairs in most elder home care centers or nursing homes. If you have an old person in your house and you are planning to buy them a recliner, make sure you know his/her weight because different lift chairs support various weights. You don’t want to waste your money and buy the wrong one, right?

Regular individuals If you thought that these recliners or lift chairs are only for people having trouble getting standing up from a chair, then you’re wrong. You don’t have to be an old person or someone with leg or back problems to use those types of chairs. Some families have bought related stuff like a reclining sofa and have considered it as a unique addition to their living room set.

So everyone can pretty much use these unique and helpful chairs. However, certain factors should be considered before buying these recliners. Check out if the lift chair you are planning to buy can support the weight of the person who will use it. Also, go for the features that you truly need and make sure it’s worth the pay.

There are things you should remember when purchasing power recliners. One is to go for the features that your elderly person really needs.
