How to choose an electric reclining chair

Chair recliners are a popular option for the old and the young alike, but when you get older, it may be more difficult to get into and out of your chair. As a result, there are many elderly chairs made specifically for older people with limited mobility. If you find yourself or a loved one in search of the perfect chair for ease of use, you may wish to consider a medical chair like an electric recliner.

Adjustable chairs

The first thing to consider when choosing riser chairs is whether the person using the chair will be able to get into or out of it. Electrical chairs use a motor to adjust upward, essentially giving you a boost when getting out of the chair. Some chairs recline or angle up more than others. So, you will need to experiment with the different options to find one which is right for your needs. Sometimes, the best way to do this is to go to the store which sells the chairs and to test out the chair and the adjustable and reclining function. Sit in the chair and use the motor feature to see if you can get up and out of the chair easily with the help of the riser recliner.

Sizing the chair

The size and material of the chair are also important when buying orthopedic chairs. The chair should be large enough so that you can sit comfortably in it. After all, while the fact that it adjusts and reclines upward and downward is important, the main function o the riser recliners is still to act as a chair for you to sit on. If the chair is not sized for your body weight and comfortable for you to sit in, using it will not be enjoyable. The material should also be comfortable on your skin and stain resistant in case things spill on it.

The controls

The controls to adjust the chair up and down should be easy to use. Some adjustable chairs come with remote controls which allows for you to more easily alter the chair's position. However, you need to make sure that the remote is not too complicated and that you can quickly and easily access the up and down functions you need.
