Do you find it difficult to get in and out of your favourite chair? Are you worried about maintaining your independence? Perhaps once you’re in your chair, you find sitting for long periods of time uncomfortable. If any of this sounds familiar, a rise and recline chair could improve your quality of life.
There are many benefits to a rise and recline chair. In addition to helping you sit down and stand up, they can help you get comfortable when reading, watching television, or sleeping. They can even ease the symptoms of some common medical problems by reducing pressure on your joints and simplifying the movements that cause pain.
At Middletons, our rise and recline chairs come with a choice of two different motors, so you can pick the one that best suits your needs.
If you suffer from arthritis, our high leg lift motor is perfect for you. It gently tilts the chair back, raising your feet above the level of your hips while keeping you in a comfortable ninety-degree sitting position. This improves circulation and reduces swelling, all while supporting your whole body. It also opens up your airways, making it easier for those with respiratory issues such as asthma or angina to breathe.
The dual motor features two separate motors allowing the footplate to move independently from the back plate. This makes it easy to find a comfortable sitting position, and also gives you the option of using your chair in a horizontal position – perfect for those afternoon naps!
Once you’ve chosen your motor, you can customise your chair even further with our accessories. Choose from our range of protective chair covers, or treat yourself to our heat and massage system, which helps relieve pain and gets your blood flowing.
