2022/09/13

Utilizing high seat armchair for elderly designed for their needs comes with many advantages for senior citizens. It is essential that appropriate seating be intended for residents of care facilities since these people often have a lower functional capability, with mobility limits being widespread. If a person can get in and out of a chair with relative ease, without having to wait or ask for help, they can keep their mobility and independence.


1. Dimension of the high seat armchair for elderly

Dimensions are primarily intended for those who are interested in purchasing a chair with a high back. When it comes to more specialized seating or seating requiring a more significant weight capacity, we advise having an occupational therapist, physiotherapist, or experienced supplier carry out the measurement. Seat height, breadth, depth, and backrest height are the interior measurements of the high seat chair. These dimensions need to correspond to the size of the user to provide sufficient support. If there is a restriction on the amount of space available, you should also consider the overall size of the high seat armchair for elderly.

 

2. Height of the high seat chairs for elderly

The ease with which one can get into and out of a high seat chairs for elderly is often directly proportional to the seat's height. If the seat is too high for you, your feet will not be able to contact the floor, and it may cause discomfort beneath your thighs. It will be more challenging to get off a seat that is too low, and the pressure will be concentrated on the pelvis rather than uniformly distributed throughout the thighs. Calculating the seat height is as simple as measuring the distance from the floor to the crease in the back of the knees. When you are sitting, your hips and knees should be at right angles, and your feet should be flat on the floor.


3. High seat armchair for elderly distance

You should be able to sit comfortably on a high-back chair with a wide seat to accommodate your body while being narrow enough to allow you to use the armrests. In a perfect world, it ought to equal the breadth of your hips, with a few extra inches on each side. There is a selection of chairs available at Yumeya furniture with a seat height. On request, we can produce alternative elevations. Try using a footstool if you require a very high seat to make standing simpler yet need support for the feet while sitting. It would help if you still made sure that both feet could contact the ground to get up from the high seat armchair for elderly on your own.


4. High seat armchair for elderly height adjustment 

The seat must have sufficient depth to accommodate the whole length of the thighs. If the seat is too deep, you will have to lean back to give your shoulders some support. Because of this, you can end up reclining in the high seat armchair for elderly, which will cause the cushion to grind against the back of your knees. When you sit in a high armchair for elderly with a deep seat, your bottom may slide forward. If it is too shallow, it will not provide the proper support for your thighs; after some time, you may find it uncomfortable. Measure the distance from the posterior of the bottom, along the thighs, to approximately 3 centimeters (1.5 inches) behind the back of the knees. This will allow you to determine the appropriate depth.


5. Height of the high back chair for elderly

The height of a chair's back is another crucial factor, mainly if one requires support for their head. If a high seat armchair for elderly is going to provide head support, it has to be proportionate to the height of the person's trunk. This ensures that the head support is in keeping with the person's overall proportions.


6. The height of the armrest

For maximum coziness, the high high armchair for elderly of armrest should enable you to rest your arms without causing your shoulders to raise or lower themselves, and it should support the forearm throughout its length.
