One day, you might find it’s harder to get up from a sitting position than it used to be. Your body aches for what feels like no reason. You end up finding you have mobility issues you did not have before. For many people that live in the Southeast Houston area, they find out they have these very same issues, whether it’s from aging or even recovering from a surgery or injury. One thing that can improve your life is a medical lift chair. For millions around the country, lift chairs are essential on helping them get up from a sitting position safely as well as keeping them mobile through out the day. Let’s dive into how you can improve your life with a lift chair.
What Is a Lift Chair?
In order to know how a lift chair can improve your life, you first need to understand what a lift chair is. Lift chairs look similar to a recliner but can take a person from sitting to standing by “lifting” them up as well as reclining like a standard recliner chair. Lift Chairs, just like recliners, are available in a variety of sizes and styles, with numerous optional features. At Bayshore Medical Supply in Pasadena, TX we are the number 1 dealer for Golden Technology lift chairs. Golden Technology lift chair models come with 3 motors that incline and decline as well as lift to almost standing position.
Improve Your Life with A lift Chair
Ability to Go from Sitting to Standing.
The first, and what could be seen as the obvious way you can improve your life with a lift chair is the ability to go from sitting to standing safely. If you have muscle weakness in your legs that make it hard to go from sitting to standing, this is a way to alleviate that issue. The lift chair will elevate you to a standing position in a speed that is easy for you to get and keep your balance, so you don’t fall. If you use a walker or can, the lift chair can bring you to a position to use those aids safely.
Reduce Muscle and Joint Pain
Besides not having to use your leg strength to try to get up, there are features of Golden Technology lift chairs that can help reduce muscle and joint pain. These features include lumbar support, heat, and massage. They are a great alternative to expensive bathtub modifications for those who require heat and massage therapy.
Reduce Leg Swelling and Increase Circulation
There is a condition called edema, where watery fluid collects in a part of the body causing swelling. This condition can also be painful. 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.
Help with Sleeping.
If you have trouble going to sleep because of the aches and pains of mobility issues, lift chairs can improve the quality of your sleep. You can lay your lift chair down to a sleeping position with extra support and features that do not come with a traditional mattress. With positions such as sleep position and zero gravity, a lift chair can help you find that perfect position to drift off to sleep in comfort by finding the right position as well as providing therapeutic heat and massage.
Speed up Recovery
If you had a surgery or injury to a part of the body that is involved in getting up from a sitting position, a lift chair could improve your life. A lift chair can help you rise to a standing position, that way there is not weight placed on the injured part of the body getting up. Also, lift chairs recline, and many have a zero-gravity position, allowing to place the injured part of the body in a more comfortable position as well as increasing the circulation, which encourages the healing of the injury and speeds up recovery time.
