Riser recliner chairs are an ideal choice for those who have difficulty getting in and out of a regular chair. They provide added support to help you move from sitting to standing easily. As such, it is important to make sure that you purchase the right riser recliner chair for your needs.

The experts at Mobility Solutions Direct have compiled a guide to buying your single and dual-motor riser recliner chairs, so you can find the perfect fit for your needs. 

What is an Electric Riser Recliner Chair?

An electric riser recliner is a chair designed to help those with reduced mobility to get in and out of a regular armchair. They can have either one or two motors which allow the user to effortlessly move from a seating position to a standing position and vice versa. The motors can be adjusted to provide varying levels of assistance, allowing users to adjust them according to their needs and to the correct seat height. 

Benefits of a Riser Recliner

Riser recliners offer a range of benefits for those with mobility issues or certain medical conditions. They provide support and comfort, as well as giving the user greater independence. They can also be adjustable, allowing you to adjust the backrest and footrest to your personal preference and position. This makes them ideal for those who may have difficulty getting in and out of a basic chair. They also come in a wide range of colours, so you can be sure to find something that matches your interior style preferences. 

Things to Consider When Looking at Riser Recliner Chairs for Sale

When considering a riser recliner, it is important to think about the type of chair you require. Single motor chairs are usually more affordable and have a simpler design, while dual motor chairs have two motors which allow for greater flexibility when adjusting the backrest and footrest.

They are perfect for individuals who may have limited mobility or need assistance transitioning between seated and standing positions.
