It’s no secret that, as we age, we contend with physical limitations. They can be as simple as having aches and pains or as complex as have a debilitating health condition. Even the supposedly-easiest tasks like getting up from a chair can be difficult for a senior. That’s what makes the power lift chair such a wonderful innovation.
Power lift chairs are mobility devices that are equipped to gradually lift people slowly to standing positions. They can also ease them into sitting positions. Lift chairs enable you to safely get in and out of your chair in comfort and without causing injury. They are very stable, so getting in and out of your chair will not cause the mobility device to tip over or move.
Lift chairs help older adults to keep their independence.
Naturally, many seniors who have mobility issues require regular assistance from caregivers. It’s important to keep in mind that this can create an emotional issue as much as it is already a physical difficulty. No matter your age, it can be stressful having to depend on others for help. With a power lift chair, an elderly person or person with disabilities doesn’t need any assistance with getting up from a seated position. As a result, a sense of independence is restored.
Lift chairs provide safety and convenience.
Power lift chairs help for their users to get up out of their seats safely. However, they also provide safety for caregivers. It is possible for providers of care to injure themselves when helping their care recipients to get out of their seats. Depending on the weight of the individual requiring help, a back injury can occur. With a lift chair, a caregiver is relieved of his/her duty to do any heavy lifting.
Lift chairs allow a variety of seating positions.
Power lift chairs can either be two-position, three-position or infinite position. It all depends on the needs of the user to fully recline in the chair. As well, lift chairs have massage and heat features that can be very beneficial for people suffering from arthritic problems. Power lift chairs are also extremely comfortable. They are designed to look and feel like a home recliner, such as a “La-Z-Boy” chair.
Lift chairs can be custom-made for their users.
It is actually very important to ensure that your power lift chair is fitted to your height, weight and mobility requirements. You will need to determine where the chair will be placed in your home, ensuring that there is enough room for optimal use. Consider the distance from the wall and whether or not the chair is blocking a walkway. Remember the chair effectively changes its size and shape when it in the recline position. You’ll need adequate space.
