Do you or a family member have trouble getting up from a seated position? Sometimes, the tasks that seem the easiest can be the most difficult. It’s wise to not put any undue pressure on your back or any other parts of your body. If you could use a little assistance getting up from a chair, a power lift chair is for you.
Power lift chairs are mobility devices that are equipped to gradually lift people slowly to standing positions or ease them into sitting positions. Lift chairs enable you to safely get in and out of your chair comfortably and without causing injury. They are very stable. Getting in and out of your chair will not cause the mobility device to tip over or move.
Power lift chairs offer safer napping.
These great mobility solutions can be put into fully reclined positions. This enables their users to lie comfortably and nap if necessary. By using a power lift chair over a traditional upright seat to nap, you can better align your spine and enhance blood circulation. This helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to your essential organs.
As well, the fully reclined position helps a user to have his/her lungs fully opened, allowing for deeper breathing. Larger breaths enable deeper sleep and reduced stress levels.
Power lift chairs can soothe aching muscles.
These awesome chairs have the option of massage and heat features. They can be very beneficial for people suffering from arthritic problems. Sore backs, tight shoulders and overall aches and pains can all be eased by sitting in a power lift chair with its massage and heat features turned on. This setting also helps to enhance blood circulation. The heat helps to increase blood flow. Better blood flow reduces inflammation, thereby reducing aches and pains.
On PainScience.com, Paul Ingraham explains that applying heat is recommended to help with non-inflammatory body pain. “Heat is primarily for relaxation, comfort, and reassurance, and taking the edge off several kinds of body pain, mostly duller and persistent pains associated with stiffness, cramping, and/or sensitivity,” he writes.
Power lift chairs offer help with balance.
Unquestionably, power lift chairs are excellent solutions for individuals who have mobility issues and/or trouble maintaining their balance. These devices are great for fall prevention. They have the ability to assist their users with getting into standing positions. By doing so, power lift chairs help to restore independence. No more asking someone for help with getting up. A user can simply touch the button that changes the positions of the chair.
