Most patients say that the hardest part about undergoing abdominal surgery is the recovery period. Simple tasks like going from a lying down to a seated position, and from sitting to standing up can be extremely painful and pull at your stitches.
Patients who have recently left the hospital after a c-section, appendectomy or a more severe intervention, can benefit from the use of a lift chair for rent in the weeks and months following their discharge.
A medical lift chair recliner takes the pain out of recovery by easing you into otherwise painful movements. For example, a rental lift chair– at the touch of a button– will allow you to slowly lower your body into a seated position. Conversely, it will gradually raise your bottom until you have reached an almost-standing position.
You will also find a lift chair to the be perfect spot where to sleep while you convalesce. Whereas sleeping in your own bed will be perfectly comfortable while your body is horizontal, you will likely need someone else’s assistance the moment you need to sit up to watch TV or stand up to use the bathroom or grab a glass of water. If you sleep on an infinite position lift chair though, you will be able to raise your back and lower your legs onto the floor with almost no effort.
There is no other medical equipment device in the market as convenient and versatile as the lift chair.

As you research medical lift chairs, you will learn that all of them have three features in common. They lift the individual up to a standing position, they offer reclining backrests and elevating footrests. Not only are they ideal for lounging, reading and watching TV– but they can also be used by individuals to nap or sleep through the night.
Once those three main functions are taken care of, though, lift chairs come equipped with an impressive range of accessories to cater to your specific needs.
Take the option of memory foam cushioning for example- which beyond achieving ideal comfort that countours to your body, also provides an enhanced cooling sensation that keeps you comfortable and dry when you spend time on your chair.
Lift chairs also come equipped with optional heat and massage. Patients requiring these additional therapeutic features will find soothing relief in the daily use of their lift chair. Heat and massage is ideal for people looking for the ultimate experience in tension relief.
Users who are taller than 6″2 can also count on footrest extensions for their lift chair. These are especially convenient when moving the chair into a sleeping position as they prevent your feet from dangling. The average extension length is usually 5 inches.
Individuals who are at risk for incontinence, can choose one of two possible solutions. Whereas most lift chairs are upholstered in fabric, manufacturers like Pride and Golden Technologies offer spill resistant vinyls— which are easy to clean up in case of accidents. Suppliers also offer resistant protective pads, which can hold up to the equivalent of one cup of fluid and can be easily removed in order to machine or hand wash them with warm water.

Lets begin by dispelling a common misconception about medical lift chairs. Many prospective customers have approached us inquiring why lift chairs are pricier than La-z-boy-style loungers if “they’re the same thing”. That is not the case. The main difference between a comfort lounger and a lift chair is the later’s ability to help you up to a comfortable standing position. Lift chairs come in two, three and infinite position configurations. What they all have in common though, is the fact that they will assist an individual in going from a sitting to a standing position with ease. Their slow-moving upwards tilt is a safe way of relieving pressure on a patient’s knees, hips and core while easing their movement.
Beyond being able to move an individual to a standing position, the backrests of lift chairs can recline — in many cases all the way down to a horizontal position) and the leg rests can come up or down at the touch of a button. There are slight — but important– differences between stair lifts in the market:
Two-position lift chair: The most basic type of lift chair will move to a semi-reclining position, where the backrest will move back as the footrest will come up. It comes equipped with one motor that operates both functions simultaneously.
Three-position lift chair: Three-position lift chairs are the intermediate category, where the chair can move to semi-reclining position as well as napping position (where the backrest moves down further and the footrest comes up even higher). Three-position medical lift chairs also work with one motor.
Infinite-position lift chair: The most versatile lift-chair category, infinite position chairs are operated by two independent motors– meaning that the backrest and footrest of the chair function independently. Whether you’re seeking to find the perfect reading, napping or sleeping position– these lift chairs can accommodate all your comfort and positioning requirements.
