When Choosing the best Lift Chair to fit your needs, there are a few things you should consider...
If you have a crippling disease such as arthritis, obesity or are paralyzed, you may want to consider purchasing a lift chair. This could make your life a lot easier and less painful. A lift chair has a lift mechanism that pushes you out of your seat, thereby reducing or eliminating the amount of effort you have to place on getting out of your seat. Sometimes Medicare reimburses for the seat lift mechanism, which is inside the lift chair.
What is the weight capacity?
When purchasing a lift chair, you want to get one that is going to make you happy. So do a little shopping and comparing first, as there are certain things you may want to have in your lift chair. You would want a chair designed to hold all of your weight so that it does not break or ruin the lift mechanism. Second, you might want to consider the different fabrics that lift chairs come in, so that your chair can provide the proper cushioning and comfort while you sit or sleep in it. The more expensive chairs are manufactured with leather or suede fabrics.
No power outages please
The more critical feature to consider before purchasing your lift chair is a battery backup. In the event you are dependent upon your chair 24/7 or live in an area where there are power outages, your chair needs to operate at all times of the day or night, no matter what the weather is outside, and a battery backup is essential.
Whatever designs or features you choose, just make sure you are happy with the lift chair as you are going to spend a lot of time in it.
