Medical Recliner Chairs
Getting up from a chair requires a surprising amount of strength, something the young and agile take for granted. As we get older, increasing strain on our lower backs makes it more and more difficult to get into and stand up from a seated position. Muscles, tendons and generally strong bones are all important for pushing our bodies upright, all things that tend to weaken as we grow frail. While we cannot restore this strength, choosing the right kind of chairs and furniture can make this problem a lot easier in medical environments like care homes, clinics and other NHS settings, where comfort is key.
Medical recliner chairs are also ideal for those suffering from restricted mobility due to conditions or impairments such as Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or Motor Neurone disease. By choosing a chair that offers alternative seating positions you are able to reduce the risk of secondary medical problems that arise from prolonged sitting such as pressure sores.
Electric Recliner Chairs
Electric chairs (both reclining and rising) make the task of getting up a lot easier. Reclining and rising chairs ease the stress that usually occurs on the spine as a person gets older, helping to push the person into a standing position. A reclining chair also provides the right kind of support for users with restricted mobility while seated, letting them relax their muscles and joints in the correct way.
