Why Buy a Lift Chair From a Medical Supply Store

Lift chairs can be an indispensable source of relief for sore and achy muscles, as well as the ability to stand up from a seated position in a safe way. When searching for lift chairs, there are a multitude of places you can go to find one. This includes places like Walmart, Amazon, and even furniture stores. However, lift chairs really are a medical device designed to alleviate pain and help older people go from sitting to standing without strain on the muscles. This is why medical supply stores also sell lift chairs, and we believe it is the best place to purchase your lift chair from. Here are some advantages of buying a lift chair from a medical supply store.

What is a Lift Chair

Lift chairs and recliners do look a lot like the same chair from the outside. That is why it is important to know the difference between them. Recliners only lie back and recline, whereas lift chairs can do that, as well as raise in a way to help a person to a standing position. Lift chairs are great for seniors or obese people over 300ibs that have difficulty getting out of a chair from a sitting position, or to sit down from a standing one due to pain or lack of muscle strength.

A Medical Supply Store is the Right Place to Buy Your Lift Chair

More Knowledgeable about the product

Medical supply stores only sell medical products, including lift chairs. Because these types of chairs fall in such a niche category, that means the salespeople at a medical supply store must know their products, including lift chairs, fairly well in order to better serve their customers.

Match Your Medical Condition

In most cases you are looking for a lift chair because you have conditions it can help treat. If you go to a furniture store to buy a lift chair, the sales associates there are trained in selling furniture. That means they may understand how comfortable a chair is or how long the materials are supposed to last, but not about the conditions a lift chair can help treat. For example, lift chairs can help with edema. Mild cases of edema may result from sitting or staying in one position for too long. This, a lot of times, happens in the legs causing them to swell, making it difficult to mobilize. With a lift chair, you can change positions of your legs, raise them above your heart and help lift yourself to a standing position so you can walk or move around. Well-stocked medical supply stores have several different types of lift chairs in stock and can match your medical conditions to the perfect lift chair for you. For example, if you are in constant pain, a zero-gravity lift chair might be best for you. With a zero-gravity lift chair, you can suspend yourself in a position where there is no force acting on your body.

Less Chance of Regretting the Lift Chair After Sale

Because sales associates of other types of stores may not be as versed in all the different types of lift chairs, they may not match you with the right one. For example, if you were looking for lift chairs for tall people, you might not get the one with the best fit if you buy online or at a big box retail store. Medical supply stores like Bayshore Medical Supply, where we have a 3,000 sq. ft warehouse full of lift chairs ready to buy and ship out the same day, we can find one to match your size.

Many furniture stores and big box retailers have a few chairs in stock. Medical supply stores like Bayshore Medical Supply have a larger selection of lift chairs in stock. Bayshore Medical Supply is a flagship dealer in the Houston and Pasadena, TX area for America’s #1 makers of power lift chairs and has the aforementioned 3,000 sq. ft warehouse full of lift chairs.
