Our riser and recliners

We offer a wide range of both reclining and static chairs, whether you need it for your mobility, health or simply to enjoy leaning back and putting your feet up at the end of a long day. For anyone who has poor mobility that affects their ability to sit with ease, a riser and recliner could be life changing. These armchairs allow you to recline and stand up with ease, minimising aches and pains, while also improving quality of life and promoting independence.

As well as a range of motors, most of our riser and recliners also come with a choice of backrests. When choosing a chair, you should also consider and try out both options in rests as this will make a huge difference in comfort for you. The most popular design is the waterfall, it provides comfort and is versatile, the cushions can be adjusted to your preference. The other option is the lumbar rest, this option is great for anyone suffering with lower back pain, as it adds additional support to the lumbar area, or for someone who is lacking in core strength and require side support to maintain a seating position.

Getting the right size

Sitting in the right sized chair can have a huge impact on the overall comfortability. Our in store advisors have excellent knowledge for what’s right for you. The chairs height, width and depth are crucial measurements to ensure you have comfort and support rather than aches and discomfort. Bear in mind while trying out something new that what you already have may not be the correct size, so reassessing may be a good opportunity.

Pressure relief and support

When it comes to positioning, pressure relief is crucial. Sitting or lying for a prolonged period of time on one specific area can cause pressure sores or ulcers. They can be incredibly painful and uncomfortable, so to prevent this, a riser and recliner will allow you to move positions independently, therefore limiting the time you spend on one area.

Taking care of your needs

When living with a disability or poor mobility, it is crucial that you take care of yourself and use the invaluable technology that enables individuals to be independent and safe.

Rise and Recline Chair FAQs

Can you sleep in a riser recliner?

Sleeping in a riser recliner is generally safe if it’s comfortable and in moderation. However, it is not recommended for extended periods due to potential side effects to your joints, muscles, pressure points and circulation.

Should your feet hang off a recliner?

Align the footrest or the ground with your feet for optimal comfort. It's crucial to avoid having your feet hanging over the footrest, as this can lead to discomfort and compromise circulation.

Do electric riser recliners use a lot of electricity?

All our Rise and Recline chairs use low-voltage systems for the safety of the person sitting in the chair. This is around 24V.

Riser recliners on standby mode use almost no power.

How does a riser recliner work?

Riser recliners run off mains' power and have in-built motors to rise and recline the chair.

The chair is operated by a handheld control that is connected to the chair’s motors.

At the press of a button, the riser recliner gently and safely adjusts to the desired position – which goes from being fully reclined to fully risen.
