Why choose a rise and recliner chair?

Rise and recliner chairs are a great way of both increasing independence with your transfers while offering you comfort and support throughout the day.  Spending long periods of time in one position can be painful on your body.  Rise and recliner chairs allow you to change your position throughout the day without having to move from the chair increasing comfort, as well as helping to redistribute your weight helping to reduce the risk of pressure sores. 

In addition, for those who have reduced, or limited mobility rise and recliner chairs can be extremely useful by providing assisted standing and sitting at the touch of a button.  This can not only help to reduce strain on carers but will also increase your independence, minimise strain and reduce fatigue.
