A riser recliner chair is said to be able to help with various medical conditions, in addition to helping the user sit and exit the chair with greater ease than a traditional chair.
If you suffer from back pain and find it difficult to lower yourself into and exit a normal chair then a riser chair should help this process. As the chair can be adjusted into many positions it also makes sitting more comfortable.
As we age blood circulation can become an issue. Again with the ability to raise and lower the leg and back section of the chair, circulation may be improved.
If you suffer from lack of mobility, and spend a lot of time sitting then a lift chair may make sitting more comfortable. It will also help in sitting and exiting the chair. The chair may also reduce the risk of pressure sores.
These are just a few of the medical issues which a riser chair may help with. The above is for general information only. Seek professional medical advice before purchasing.
