Lift chairs for the disabled have helped many people to regain their independence. They help to restore people’s daily routines by allowing them to safely and easily get in and out of the chair. Lift chairs look and feel like regular chairs, but possess a safe mechanism that helps to raise or lower the chair and allow people to easily stand up or sit back down.
When lift chairs were first introduced to the market in the 1980’s, they were revolutionary. The only problem that consumers found with the products were their mechanical reliability. However, with new technology, lift chairs are now safer and more reliable than ever. With various colors, models, and fabrics – lift chairs are customizable to both the person and their home.
Many people can benefit from lift chairs, particularly those who struggle with stability, leg or back weakness. As an additional function, lift chairs have the ability to recline, allowing a person to put their legs up. The lift chairs are powered by either a battery pack or by using an outlet, depending on the consumer’s preference. The chairs are a little larger than a normal recliner, so it is important to allow space for them to function and, for safety, remove any objects or materials that surround the chair.
By positioning yourself with a slight bend of the knees onto a fully raised lift chair, it will allow you (with one button) to gently lower to a sitting position with ease. With another click of a button, the chair will steadily return you to an upright position, which will help you to easily get out of your chair.
Lift chairs promote independence by assisting people to get out of and into their chair. It allows them to remain in their home, without the assistance of others to remain active and move as they please. Feedback from our customers helps to reinforce this:
Jason B from Kentucky wrote, "We bought a Luxury LL-450 last week. I don't know how we got along without it. It doesn't look out of place, but merely another piece of furniture in our living room. But it is much more than that. I can now sit with the knowledge that getting back up will be a breeze. Thank you so much!"
Rebecca Burns from U.S. wrote, "I would like to thank you so much for the prompt response to our request regarding the lift chair. My uncle received it within days of the purchase. He is extremely satisfied with the quality of the product, and is able to get up by himself."
Lift chairs have made a huge impact on not only those who are physically disabled, but also on their families. Prices start at around $400, but Medicare or a private insurance plan could pay part of that cost.
