The Ride of Your Life
If you or someone you know is having trouble getting in and out of their "favorite" chair, this article is for you! It is time to look into purchasing a "new" favorite chair - a Lift Chair!
A power lift chair is a medical device designed to help you sit down and stand back up comfortably. Lift chairs are an ideal option for seniors or disabled individuals who need a bit of help moving from the sitting position. Most models will assist you in both, sitting down into your recliner and helping you get back up.
These chairs are very comfortable and easy to use; most models have a hand control which moves your chair with a slight push of your finger. Lift chairs can be ordered to meet your needs. Most manufacturers build a chair that is fitted to your height, weight and size.
There are many different styles of chairs to choose from, along with different fabrics and colors. With these varied options, you can style a lift chair to match the decor already in your home.
It's always best to do some research before making a decision. Many companies, but not all, offer a lifetime warranty on their chairs. Contact your insurance company; some may cover part of the cost of your lift chair. Get different price quotes to help to determine where to purchase your "new" favorite chair.
