For those who struggle with mobility or have health concerns that affect their ability to sit comfortably, a riser recliner can be a life-changing piece of furniture. These motorised armchairs allow individuals to recline and lift themselves up with ease, alleviating the strain and discomfort of standing up from a traditional armchair.
Furthermore, if leg swelling is a problem, these chairs can help by raising the legs up into a comfortable position. With a wide range of options available from furniture manufacturers and mobility product specialists, it is important to understand the different types of chairs to choose the one that best suits your needs. A riser recliner is more than just a chair, it is a tool that can improve quality of life and provide greater independence.
At Magbility we take pride in our range of rise and recline chairs. Our product experts have the knowledge and experience to assist you in finding the right furniture to meet your unique needs. We understand that comfort and functionality are important when it comes to choosing the right chair, which is why we offer a full seating assessment to ensure you leave with a truly made-to-measure chair that suits your needs.
Our fully stocked showrooms located across the Midlands boast a range of rise and recline chairs, allowing you to try out different options and find the perfect fit.
The decision to choose between a made-to-measure or a standard size chair may seem confusing but it is an important one. A made-to-measure chair provides the benefit of an exact fit and therefore ensuring maximum comfort and support. People often believe that customisation will come with added costs, which here at Magbility certainly isn’t true.
If we are making alterations to a standard size recliner the lead time and cost are the same as choosing a standard sized recliner in a custom fabric of choice. The only time a recliner can come quicker is when it is in a standard size and in an express fabric.
Larger manufactures tend to offer Express Recliners in two basic sizes; Petite and Classic sizes. And in three or four choices of fabrics. UK made express riser recliners can be delivered in a week to 10 days by our in-house engineering team, in the room of your choice.
When it comes to choosing a rise and recline chair, the motor you choose is a crucial consideration. The options available vary in their features and functionality, with a single motor being a cheaper option but providing less flexibility over your seating position. On the other hand, a dual motor provides greater freedom over your positioning, allowing the backrest recline to be adjusted independently to raising the footrest.
A tilt in space motor can help to maintain a consistent 90° back angle, and this option is available with both single and dual motors. Taking the time to understand the different motor options available will ensure that you select the most suitable chair to meet your individual needs.
The backrest of a rise and recline chair is a critical component that cannot be overlooked. When selecting a model, it is essential to consider the backrest design carefully. One of the most popular options is the waterfall design, which provides great comfort and versatility, allowing the cushions to be adjusted to your liking.
Alternatively, those suffering from lower back pain may opt for the lumbar or split back design, which offers additional support to the lumbar area. Lateral backrests are also a viable option for those lacking core strength and require side support to maintain a correct posture.
When it comes to selecting the right seat size, getting the dimensions just right can mean the difference between comfortable support and aching discomfort. The seat height, width, and depth are crucial measurements to consider, and it’s important to ensure that you take accurate measurements to assess your needs.
To determine the correct seat height, measure the distance from the floor to the crease at the back of your knees when you are seated. It’s essential to make sure that your hips and knees are at right angles while your feet are flat on the ground. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that your current seat may not be the appropriate size, so taking the time to reassess your measurements is vital.
When it comes to finding the correct seat depth, it’s important to measure properly. Begin by measuring the distance from the back of your hips to approximately 1.5″ before the back of your knees. That way, when you’re seated, you can be sure that your thighs will be appropriately supported by the seat. However, it’s important to find a seat that’s not so deep that your lower back won’t receive the support it needs.
Finding the perfect fit can make all the difference in your comfort level and seat width is also an inportant consideration. It’s important to have enough space to sit and relax, but not too much where you feel lost in your seat. The ideal width is one that perfectly accommodates your hips, with just enough room for a clenched fist on either side.
When it comes to sitting or lying down, pressure relief is a crucial factor to consider. Any prolonged period of pressure on one specific area of the body can result in the development of pressure sores or ulcers. This can be an incredibly uncomfortable, painful, and distressing experience, affecting an individual’s quality of life in a multitude of ways.
Everyone has different needs, and circumstances may change over time. That’s why we offer bespoke alterations to your chair to increase the pressure relief where needed. We also understand that certain individuals require specific features in a chair. Our range of healthcare chairs offer a number of pressure relief options.
For individuals with limited mobility, finding comfortable seating that also promotes health can be a challenge. Thankfully, the development of technology like the tilt-in-space mechanism has made a significant difference.
This mechanism adjusts the pressure placed on the body, allowing users to move backward or forward with ease. This option is now available in a dual motor and our dual space in tilt chairs are changing the existing landscape.
Additionally, the option of gel, memory foam, or air cushions helps protect sensitive areas like the bottom. The use of breathable fabrics that stretch in four directions makes for comfortable seating while also protecting vulnerable areas such as heels, elbows, and ears.
It is vital to take good care of the body when recovering from an injury or living with a disability, and the development of these technologies is invaluable in enabling individuals to do so.
Magbility offers a diverse selection of motor mechanisms for our chairs, ranging from single motor to dual motor tilt in space chairs. No matter your budget, we’re confident we can provide a chair that matches your specific needs.
However, it’s not just rise and recline chairs we offer – we also supply a range of complementary furniture, such as static fireside chairs and sofas. Additionally, each of our chairs can be upholstered in your choice of fabric from an extensive range.
