The biggest difference between power lift chairs and traditional recliners can be found in the names of each. A recliner, as you’re surely aware, allows for a person to recline and lay back while seated. A power lift chair, on the other hand, actually does some lifting. The chair tilts the base and the back of the chair forward to assist the seated person with getting to a standing position. A simple push of a button makes getting up from the chair very easy!

Power lift chairs promote safety.

It should go without saying that it’s much safer to get assistance when battling a mobility issue. A power lift chair helps a user to avoid putting excess pressure on his/her arms and legs. Getting up from a seated position also doesn’t require the assistance of a caregiver. This ensures that no one else gets hurt in the process of helping an individual out of a chair. Naturally, a caregiver can strain his/her back or endure another injury when attempting to lift a care recipient.

Power lift chairs help to reduce edema.

Edema is a condition defined as swelling that is caused by fluid retention. It usually occurs in the feet, legs or ankles. Edema can also occur in the hands and face. As David Heitz informs on Healthline.com, there are many illnesses that can cause edema. They include heart failure, kidney disease, cirrhosis of the liver, thyroid disorders, blood clots, infections and severe allergic reactions.

As well, sitting or standing in any one position for too long can cause edema. With a power lift chair, a person can easily change the position of his/her legs. The legs can also be raised while seated. Finally, the ease with which one can get up from the seated position helps him/her to avoid sitting idle for too long. This helps to reduce the risk of edema.

Power lift chairs ease muscle cramps.

The older we get, the more our muscles and joints stiffen. Soreness is commonplace for many elderly people. This is why finding comfortable positions for both sitting and sleeping is so important for them. With a power lift chair, a person can help to ease the tension placed on his/her stiff and sore joints.

People who suffer from back pain and arthritis among other conditions can greatly benefit from power lift chairs. The chairs provide both comfort and easy access to various seating positions.
