Benefits Of A Riser Recliner Chair

Benefits Of A Riser Recliner Chair
A riser recliner can be a simple way to overcome daily challenges and maintain a sense of independence in your home. They don't just provide excellent levels of comfort, but they can also help improve circulation and posture. We all need a little more help with that as we get older, or if we spend long periods of time sitting down. Even though riser recliners come with multiple benefits, many people aren't aware of how helpful they can be.

To make sure you're in the know, we've created a few reasons as to why you should consider buying a riser recliner with Sheepbridge Interiors.

1. Help you stand up and sit down
First of all, riser recliner chairs help you get on and off your feet safely and comfortably, without putting too much strain on your body. So, if you have trouble getting up or sitting down from a chair without help from another person, this could be a welcome solution. The reclining action also enables you to find a seating position that suits you - which is particularly important if you spend long spells of time sitting down during the day, or if you have certain medical conditions.

2. Help keep your feet raised
Unlike standard armchairs, you can lie back and put your feet up in a riser recliner chair. By just extending the leg rest will lift your feet off the ground, and you'll feel instantly relaxed. But if you're looking for ultimate comfort, tilt the backrest backwards. Beyond that, keeping your feet raised also has additional health benefits as it promotes better circulation around the body. Plus, you'll stay comfortable for longer, and any swelling in the lower legs can be relieved or prevented.

3. Help to alleviate back pain
Because riser recliner chairs provide flexible positioning, this can help reduce back pain and improve posture. When you recline, you find a position that supports your back and alleviates tension. You'll notice that certain riser recliner models can lie almost completely flat, meaning you can take your afternoon nap in the comfort of your chair.

4. Help to redistribute pressure
When you sit down for long periods of time and don't reposition yourself, it's easy to become uncomfortable - but you're also at risk of pressure injuries and bedsores. Vulnerable areas can include your back and posterior, as well as your ankles and elbows. Sitting in a riser recliner means you can reposition yourself more easily throughout the day. All you need to do is to lean back or lift up your legs to take the pressure off these areas of your body, making sure ulcers don't develop.

What types of riser recliners are there?
There are two main types of riser recliners: single motor and dual motor. We only stock Dual Motor. With a dual motor riser recliner, the backrest and footrest function independently. So, you can recline or raise you feet, or do both at the same time. The main benefit of the dual-motor is that it gives you a greater range of movement.

How long do riser recliner chairs last?
It all depends on which riser recliner you choose, and how much time you spend using it. It's always worth investing in what you can afford, especially if you're likely to spend hours every day sitting in your chair.

At Sheepbridge Interiors, we stock a wide range of high-quality riser recliner chairs at affordable prices. For your peace of mind, all models come with 12-months warranty.
