Riser Recliner Chairs

Shop across a range of Rise & Recline Chairs for the Elderly

Riser Recliner Chairs are much more accessible and offer more adjustable comfort than standard armchairs. They can rise to meet you from a standing position to gently lower you to a seated position and allow you to fully customise the reclining angle of the backrest and height of the leg rest to find your most comfortable sitting position. When you want to get up again, these chairs will rise with you, supporting you all the way.

How do Riser Recliner Chairs work?

Most Rise & Recline Chairs feature an inbuilt, low-voltage motor system which plugs into mains power. These motors are operated by a simple hand-held controller and some models even feature a back-up battery which allows the chair to continue to operate in the event of a power cut. The motor gently adjusts the electric recliner chair to rise to meet you, recline to a position where you feel most comfortable and then raise you up as you stand, all at the push of a button.

Who are Riser Recliner Chairs for?

Electric Riser Recliner Chairs are ideal for anyone that doesn’t get enough support and comfort from their standard armchairs, who have stiff or painful joints and a reduced range of movement. These chairs offer a much more accessible and independent alternative to bending down to and standing up from seated positions which could be putting too much strain on your body. Reclining backrests allow you to adjust your back to hip angle, which can alleviate aches and pains and ease pressure points. They’re also great for a day time nap!

What to consider when choosing a Riser Recliner Chair for the elderly?

Consider the overall size and weight capacity of each Rise & Recline Chair to ensure you have the suitable space and requirements for them. Some chairs recline backwards, meaning you will need to make room behind for them, whereas others recline on a vertical plane – so they can be pushed up against a back wall. Each chair is made from different materials to suit a variety of interior decor, so you may want to consider your design preferences and comfort requirements. The listed chairs range from £135 to around £1,072, some with unique features which you can compare to be sure you buy the right chair for you.
