Choosing the Perfect Lift Chair for You
Lift chairs are designed to gradually lift you to a standing position or ease you into a sitting position safely. This mobility device is designed to look and feel like a recliner, providing maximum comfort while complementing the decor in your home.
Our lift chairs are designed to contour the body for maximum comfort and positioning while minimizing the risk of a fall. They provide floor space under the front of the chair to allow you to find your center of gravity when you stand up. They are very stable and reliable, so your movement on and off the chairs will not cause them to tip over or slip.
Discover your Mobility Requirements
It’s important to try a lift chair before you buy it. Be sure the chair meets your height, weight and mobility requirements. Lift chairs usually come in two-position or three-position settings. The main difference between them is that three-position chairs offer the option of a full recline. Lift chair models like the Pride Mobility LC-107 Lift Chair, offer several positioning options, allowing you to keep the chair adjusted in a way that is comfortable and perfect for you.
Lift chairs sometimes offer additional features depending on your mobility needs. Certain chairs can be customized to improve posture or reduce pressure for people with spinal curvatures like Kyphosis or Lordosis. People with Parkinson’s may receive therapeutic benefits when using lift chairs with the massage feature, which helps to calm tremors. People suffering from arthritis should consider a lift chair with both massage and heat features.
The arms of the chair should be at a level where they can support your weight and provide you sufficient grip when you’re in a seated position. The chair back should be relatively high to allow you to maintain good posture, yet flexible enough to keep you comfortable. Your feet should rest on the floor when you’re seated in an upright position. You may also use seat assists for other chairs throughout your home where a lift chair is not practical, like a dining room chair for example.
The Right Lift Chair for Your Home
When choosing a lift chair, the most important factor to consider is improved mobility. But, it’s also important that your new chair fit your lifestyle and the décor of your home. Before you make your purchase, decide where you intend to place the chair. Think about its distance from a wall, whether it will be in the way as you and others walk in and out of the room, and whether it can fit in the room when stretched out to full recline. For example, if you don’t have a lot of space, you might prefer a wall hugger model like the Pride Mobility LL-805, which will allow you to recline even when placed against a wall.
Lift chairs come in fabrics of many various designs and colours to complement the décor and design of your home.
