Do you find yourself struggling to get out of your seat? Does rising from a seated position cause you any pain? How convenient would it be for you to go from sitting to standing with a touch of a button? If you experience difficulty in getting out of a chair, a power lift chair is definitely for you!
With just the touch of a button, a power lift chair will raise or lower. This incredible mobility solution is known for helping people to reduce their back pain, sit more comfortably and avoid injury when trying to stand up. Power lift chairs are also very comfortable power recliners. Many recline all the way back to a sleep-ready position. Other models offer additional recline positions to increase circulation and provide additional health benefits like heat and massage.
Let’s take a look at some of the top benefits of using a power lift chair.
It reduces postural hypotension.
Postural hypotension, which is also known as orthostatic hypotension, is a form of low blood pressure. It happens when you stand up from a sitting or lying down position. Postural hypotension can make you feel dizzy or lightheaded and may even cause you to faint. About 30 percent of seniors experience postural hypotension.
When using a power lift chair, you are able to slowly rise from your seated position. This enables your blood pressure to stabilize. As a result, the risk of falls is reduced and the possibility of an injury is minimized.
It helps to decrease edema.
Edema is the medical term for swelling. Our body parts often experience swelling after an injury occurs or if inflammation is present. Edema is often brought on by certain medications, pregnancy or infections. Swelling can also occur when you remain in an idle position for too long.
With a power lift chair, you increase your ability to be mobile. Swollen legs can be avoided by having them raised via the chair. This improves blood circulation, increases comfort and reduces the risk of edema.
It increases independence.
At the end of the day, this is what everyone with mobility issues really wants. Having a disability often entails needing assistance with everyday tasks. This isn’t just a physical burden, it’s an emotional strain. With a power lift chair, an individual with mobility issues doesn’t have to rely on a caregiver to get him/her up from his/her seated position.
With the click of a button, a person can change the position of the chair to help with sleep, sitting comfortably or getting up without any help. Studies have shown that when people are able to regain the independence they once lost, they significantly reduce their stress, anxiety and depression.
