When you are deciding on a new piece of furniture there are many factors to consider. Aside from asking yourself if you would like to have both backrest and footrest features or indeed side pockets to store your most used items; it is important to consider the level of lumbar support you need.
Health complications and mobility issues are two of the many reasons customers come to Morris Living in search of a motorized rise and recline chair.
As people get older, buying furniture that aids mobility is a top priority. Recliner armchair furniture that incorporates features and advanced technology can make life easier and more comfortable.
One of the most popular types of furniture that aids mobility is a riser recliner. At Morris Living, we stock both dual motor riser recliner chairs and single motor riser recliner chairs. If you are unsure which would suit you best, read our recent blog post that talks you through the benefits of both. This blog may help you decide which could benefit you the most.
Traditionally when they first came onto the market, the designs of riser recliners were quite limited. However, due to a rapid growth in demand for orthopedic chairs, you can now choose from a vast range of designs, including various choices of colour, material and functionality.
Here are some of the top benefits of owning a riser recliner chair:
Sit down and stand up with ease
The top benefit is the physical support that a riser recliner provides. By using the motorised functionality, you can go from a seated position to a standing position with ease. As we age, it is quite common for our mobility to decrease which can cause some individuals to feel disheartened and like their independence is being taken away.
A riser recliner chair is one of the most advised pieces of equipment that you can have in your home to combat feeling like you need continuous aid when getting in and out of your chair.
Benefit from elevated legs
A riser recliner chair also provides the option to raise the footrest so that you can elevate your legs with or without reclining the backrest. This sitting position has numerous benefits backed up by great research!
It is known to help improve circulation and is particularly beneficial for people who have low blood-pressure or fluid-retention in their lower limbs. It can also help to reduce swelling in ankles and prevent and reduce varicose veins.

Relieve aches and pains
By providing greater support to certain areas of the body, through the different position options, having a riser chair can help to reduce aches and pains in joints. If you sit in the same position for too long your joints can get stiff, so using the reclining function can help you to adjust the sitting position to prevent joints from stiffening. If you suffer from chronic back pain, a riser recliner can relieve the pain.
Many riser recliner chairs come with USB ports designed into the side of the chair or cup holders in the arm. This means you can easily charge your phone while sitting in your chair or have your drink within easy reaching distance without needing to stretch for it. Whilst we recommend being as active and mobile as possible to prevent becoming stiff, as explained above, we understand that every individual’s circumstances are incredibly different so accessories like this can be super helpful for many customers.
People who use riser recliner chairs can benefit from prolonged independence as they will not require support from family or caregivers to get up and out of their furniture. The added health benefits such as improved circulation and joint support can also help to prolong mobility and therefore you can lead a more independent life for longer.
