4 Things to consider when buying a Bariatric Riser Recliner Chair
If you are looking for a chair that will support extra weight, some manufacturers will be able to supply you with an extra-large, heavy duty riser recliner chair, otherwise known as a ‘Bariatric’ chair.
Before you commit to purchasing a bariatric riser recliner chair, it is important to make the following considerations:
1.Have you got the space available in your home?
When looking for a bariatric chair, it is worth considering the amount of space you have available in the room you would like it positioned in. Always measure up your space to ensure you have room for it in both upright and reclined positions. Furthermore, as the chair will be mains operated, it is also important to make sure that there is space available near to an electricity socket.
2. Does the bariatric chair have a high quality action and multiple motors?
Make sure you are not tempted by a cheap deal from a supplier unless you have done your research. Some cheaper manufacturers often use a scissor action with their riser recliner chairs, which means they only have one weight-load point. This makes your riser recliner less stable and more prone to malfunctioning. Willowbrook bariatric chairs can incorporate up to three motors and an extra wide seat base to ensure you are not only comfortable but also stable and fully supported through all movements.
3. Is the chair customisable?
Once you’ve chosen your perfect bariatric riser recliner chair, you may want to consider personalising it further with one or more optional extras or accessories. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Would you benefit from a built in massage system to help ease your aches and pains?
- Do you enjoy to read in your recliner and would a light attachment be helpful for you?
- Would pockets on either side of your riser recliner help store everything you need close to hand?
- Would you like a specialist cleaning kit for your riser recliner to ensure it always looks as good as new?
4. Do you know your measurements?
Before getting in touch with a manufacturer, it is important to know your weight. If you haven’t weighed yourself in a while you may not be aware that your weight has changed, which can have implications on the safety of the chair.
