Most people feel that power and lift recliners are only for elderly people who have little to no strength available to operate a manual recliner. The truth is: power and lift recliners are actually for everyone
Traditional recliners provide us certain benefits, like having a secondary place to sleep when bothered by conditions like acid reflux, sinus congestion, or even heart issues. Sometimes we may be faced with physical difficulties, which is where power and lift recliners come in. Muscle or joint injuries to the hip, shoulder, neck, back, knee, leg – any of these can make it extremely difficult to open or close a manual recliner, or even to stand. Or perhaps someone is going through a surgery or illness resulting in the pain of recovery or loss of muscle strength. Power and lift recliners can ease the problems that come with situations like that, while still providing a comfortable, relaxing chair. Simply by easing the strain on weak or injured joints and muscles, a power and lift chair can aide in a swifter or more comfortable recovery. Even if someone doesn’t need help standing on a daily basis, having that option available for those bad days can sometimes make life significantly easier.
One other important thing to remember is that for those people who need assistance in standing, lift recliners can play an important part in maintaining independence. It can allow some who otherwise wouldn’t be able to stand on their own to get around without assistance.
Power recliners also provide benefits for those who are completely fit, by
As far as the recliner itself, there are benefits in its own structure, too. Power and lift recliner frames can sometimes stay more stable than a manual recliner, since the frame does not shake every time someone has to shift their weight to reach for the handle, lean back, or kick down a footrest. Also, most power and lift recliners now come with a backup battery pack, that allows for the chair to still work for a few times when there is no power. When used properly you won't need to worry about getting stuck in a recliner during a power outage. There is even an option to purchase rechargeable full batteries, where a power or lift recliner can be plugged into. This offers a wider range of placement positions, rather than having to be placed near an outlet. Certain recliners can also give the enjoyment of heat, massage, or both, just to enhance the comfort a little bit further.
With all the advancements now in power and lift recliners, they have quickly become a simple and affordable way to make life a little easier and a little more comfortable. So many variations available mean it is not difficult to find the perfect one to make your home - and your relaxation - complete.
