Types Of Chairs For The Elderly And How To Choose?


Regular use of an adjustable chair is a need for most people. This is because the elderly tend to spend much of their time seated. There are many options available, from basic recliners to armchairs with full-body support. It is easier to sit on these chairs since they are more supportive and comfy. And it's adjustable to meet your specific seating requirements. The Yumeya furniture is one of our best-selling homecare furniture products. Additionally, they provides a wide range of pressure care and support options, allowing the user to construct a chair that best meets their own requirements. People with restricted mobility, such as the elderly, may find that an adjustable chair significantly improves their quality of life. A riser recliner chair may enhance your well-being and freedom by enabling you to sit, raise, and recline in comfort.


Types of Chairs for elderly that are comfortable

1. Rise and recline chairs

Seniors may use rise and recliner chairs to assist them in getting out of bed or back into bed. The rise reclining chair is driven by an electric motor, allowing users to securely lower themselves into a sitting or lying position. Then, they can get themselves back up with the press of a second button.


2.  Chairs with high backs

Because back discomfort is more frequent in elderly and disabled individuals, it's important to utilize chairs that provide enough back support while sitting. Older adults should use a high-back chair, which promotes excellent posture and provides complete spinal support. The back of the chair should not tilt too much forward or back. Leaning too far back reduces support and encourages the user to slump, while leaning too far forward may put undue strain on the spine and hips. Therefore, you should avoid both positions at all costs.

3.  Remote control reclining chair

Remote control recliners are designed to help folks with restricted mobility and a decreased range of motion overall. A convenient remote control makes it possible to experience the entire spectrum of reclining pleasure. In addition, a caretaker may easily transfer the chair from room to room thanks to the chair's wheels. And it's simpler than ever to keep the upholstery clean.

4.  Rise and recline Settees

For those times when two or three persons have different notions of what makes them comfortable, settees can recline as well! The settees include a handle that enables the elderly to recline or tilt the chair forward and up to assist them in standing.


How to choose them?

Comfort, adjustable features, wheels, and pressure control are some of the most important factors when purchasing a chair for the elderly.

· Comfort

Comfort is very crucial because if the chair the patient is sitting in is not comfortable, then none of the other considerations really matter. The right chair may help the patient spend less time in bed, which directly contributes to an improvement in their overall quality of life.

· All features must be adjustable.

A chair's several adjustments enable it to adapt to the patient's changing demands over time. To guarantee that the patient is always appropriately seated in the chair, this involves having an adjustable seat width that you can shift to accommodate the patient's weight growth or loss over time.

· Wheels

With the help of a chair on wheels, caregivers and family members may easily transport the patient from the patient's bedroom to a day room or living room, as well as outdoors for fresh air and stimulation. This fosters a sense of belonging among family members and other inhabitants of a care facility, as well as a sense of community. In addition, seating Matters' chairs come fitted with casters to make repositioning a breeze.

· Standardization of Pressure Management

If your loved one spends most of their day seated and cannot get up and move about when they get uncomfortable, a pressure-management chair may be necessary. The chair's pressure control system improves comfort while lowering the danger of pressure ulcers (bed sores). Pressure ulcers may be life-threatening. When it comes to a pressure ulcer, it's critical not to undervalue its intricacy or the potential for consequences.

· Rest for the Feet

Our feet are responsible for 19% of our overall weight. Therefore, leg rests, footplates, and the ground are all viable options for patients with limited mobility or immobility to maintain stability and control pressure redistribution throughout the body.
