Why lift chairs will help your recovery!

Have you or a loved one gone through hip or knee replacement surgery? Have you had a medical intervention in your abdominal area that has weakened your core? In those cases, Mediplus Mobility’s lift chairs for sale and for rent could be a great tool to help you recover.

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.¬†serta lift chair

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.
