5 Things To Consider When Choosing a Riser Recliner Chair

As we advance into old age our bodies grow weaker making us less capable to do certain tasks and more inclined to feel muscle aches and pains. With today’s technology, a wide range of products are designed to address these issues and help us to lead a more fulfilling life despite the woes that often come with older age.

One good example of these advanced innovations is the riser recliner chair which can offer you comfort, support and mechanical or electrical assistance to help you sit down and stand up. All electric adjustments are made through a handset control, designed to be used by the person in the chair. Simply put, riser recliner chairs not just help you maintain your independence but are also a great furniture alternative for minimising the risk of injury, especially for people with mobility issues.

Whilst it may seem like an easy task to shop for the right riser recliner chair, choosing mobility aids require you to understand how the various products available can be beneficial to you. Read on to know more about the key factors you should be taking into consideration before making a purchase.

Motor system
First and foremost, if you are planning on buying a riser recliner chair, you should consider the type of motor system suitable for your needs. A single motor system controls the backrest, footrest and riser functions to move in unison, whilst the dual motor can give you more variation in accessing different positions by letting you operate the seat and leg sections of the chair independently.

When considering size, think about the external dimensions and the seat or postural dimensions of the chair. External dimensions indicate how big the chair will appear in a room, whilst seat or postural dimensions tell how well suited the chair is to the user. Taking account of the right measurements of the riser recliner chair is important in ensuring that you will maintain a supportive and comfortable posture for the duration of time you are sitting down.

Style and design
As much as you need to pay great attention to functionality, you should also consider the style and design of the riser recliner chair as it is still a piece of furniture that can affect the vibe of your room. Choose a chair that will reflect your tastes and personality to perfectly complement with the style of the area.

Riser recliner chairs can be done in either fabric or leather upholstery. Fabric offers excellent comfort by responding well to the user’s body shape with its soft-touch feel. Leather, on the other hand, is a very practical choice with its wipe-clean surface and durability.
