Why you Should Buy a Rise and Recline Chair in 2021

Rise and Recline Chair in 2021

The mobility industry, as a whole, has come on leaps-and-bounds in the last ten years. Not only have the wide-variety of products become more widely-accessible, but the technology has improved beyond recognition. There are now units which can be implemented and utilised in a variety of different circumstances. Going into 2021, you may be pondering which mobility aid you should invest in. This is where the ISB Mobility experts come into the picture. They are firmly of the belief that rise-and-recline chairs are on the up-and-up, and you can educate yourself as to why this is by continuing your reading down below.

Limit Forced Movement

When you get older, it is natural that the body begins to slowly-but-surely lose some of its capabilities. Tasks which used to take no effort at all are suddenly ones which require maximum exertion. Take, for example, sitting on an armchair; what was once a relaxing endeavour is now one that is full of pitfalls. By purchasing a riser-recliner, you can put these issues to bed. No longer will you have to force your body to move in ways which are not only uncomfortable, but also painful.

Bolsters Motility

A little-known fact about rise-and-recline chairs is that the benefits far exceed the simple easing of pain when looking to enjoy some downtime. If you were to spend an extended period sitting in one of these products, your joints will begin to loosen up in ways that before you could only dream of. The reason for this is that there is room for increased movement in the chair, which subsequently means that your overall motility has the opportunity to improve exponentially.

Improves Blood Circulation

One of the primary reasons behind the loss of movement in your limbs is the fact that they do not have an adequate supply of blood. Circulations does typically begin to worsen as one becomes older, but this does not necessarily mean that you have to stand idly by doing nothing. If you took the innovative step of buying a rise-and-recline chair, you can be proactive in trying to improve your circulation, which may have a profound effect as time goes by.

Increase Your Safety 

 

Falls, slips and trips tend to regularly occur in the bathroom, and a walk-in shower can give you the peace of mind that you need by knowing that you’ll be safer when using yours. We all want to feel safe and secure in our bathrooms, which is why a walk-in shower offers an ideal solution to anyone who is elderly, disabled, has mobility or movement issues, or is in a wheelchair.

 

A walk-in shower increases safety as there is no lip or step to the shower, so you are much less likely to trip when getting in and out of your shower. This also makes it easier to get into your shower space in a wheelchair, or with the help of a supporting frame. They also have slip-resistant tiles, meaning that you are less likely to slip and fall when showering.

 

Make Using Your Shower Easier

 

Walk-in showers also make using your shower easier, as you can enter them without having to climb over a lip or a step. This makes it easy for anyone to access your shower, and not have to worry about climbing into a bath or into a shower tray. No one wants to struggle to get into and use their own bathroom, which is where a walk-in shower can really help and transform your bathroom space.

 

They are completely wheelchair and mobility chair accessible, meaning that there is no need to install ramps to get into the showering space. You can also have additional safety features added to your walk-in shower, such as handles and grab bars so that you can feel safer and more secure and have your bathroom be more accessible for you.

 

Independence and More Space For Assistance if Needed

 

We all want to feel independent in our own homes and be able to use our bathroom spaces easily without a struggle. For those who are struggling to use their bathrooms, this can be very challenging both mentally and physically which is where a walk-in shower can help. They provide you with the independence that you need, and adequate washing facilities that you can use in your own home without support. Additionally, they are also more spacious, allowing for relatives or carers to assist if needed. As the entire room will become a shower, it makes it easier for others to help you if needed.

3 Ways Disabled Wet Rooms Promote Independent Living in your Home

If you are disabled, elderly or experiencing limited movement you might be looking into having your current bathroom transformed into a wet room. Wet rooms have a wide number of benefits to those struggling with using a regular bathroom on their own, and can completely enhance the lives of those with these struggles. Today we want to explore just 3 ways that disabled wet rooms can help to promote independent living, and the benefits they can bring you.

 

ISB Mobility have been proud leaders in the home mobility market since 1999, providing customers with a range of home living and mobility products. We supply customers with products to make their homes more comfortable and accessible – all at an affordable price; to help regain your independence.

 

To learn more about just some of the ways that disabled wet rooms promote independent living in the home and can help you, visit our website for further information.

 

Increase Accessibility in your Bathroom

 

Disabled wet rooms increase the accessibility of your bathroom, making it easier for you to use your bathroom by yourself without support. They make getting into your shower easy, as there is a level floor so there’s no need to step up into a shower tray which can be difficult if you have limited mobility or are in a wheelchair. They also have large openings, making them easy to get in and out of. Disabled wet rooms also tend to be large and spacious, meaning that there is lots of space for movability and that it won’t feel tight or cramped. This is great for those with wheelchairs as there is plenty of space for you to move around.

 

Make Your Bathroom Safer to Use

 

They help make your bathroom safer to use, so you can have peace of mind that you or your family member will be safe in their bathroom. Bathrooms can be dangerous and scary spaces for those with mobility difficulties or those who are elderly, or disabled. A lot of trips and falls tend to occur in the home, which is where a disabled wet room can help. As the entire bathroom will be on one level, you will be a lot less likely to trip and fall. Disabled wet rooms also have non-slip tiles, so you don’t have to worry about slipping due to a wet floor. You can also make your disabled wet room even safer by adding additional equipment such as handrails, grab bars, shower seats and fold-down seats to make life easier.

 

Allow You to Remain Comfortable in Your Home

 

Wet rooms help those who are struggling to use their current bathroom spaces regain their independence, and be able to use their bathroom by themselves again. This can really change how those struggling with mobility issues, disabilities, or those who are elderly feel and provide them with a boost of confidence that they might need. It can be super challenging both physically and mentally when you are unable to use the bathroom in your own home by yourself without a challenge, which is why a disabled wet room is the ideal solution. It also means that you won’t have to worry about moving to a home with a more accessible bathroom, and can remain comfortable in your current property.

Which Model Should you Choose When Looking to Buy a Powerchair?

Buy a Powerchair

The powerchair may not be the most popular or well-known product on the mobility market, but this is in no way a reflection of the first-class qualities that these products exhibit.

Unfortunately, you may be slightly unsure as to which model you should go for; if you take a look below, you can find out which products are recommended by the ISB Mobility experts.

Similarly, the ability to be disassembled means that you can take it anywhere, with limited hassle.

Whill Model C

However, when you delve a little deeper, it will immediately become apparent that this is a unit with a number of innotivate features that are meant to drastically improve your experience.

Leon Captain Seat Power Tilt

For those of you that have a relatively healthy budget within which to work, and are searching for a product which can easily serve you long-term, we believe that the Leon Captain Seat Power Tilt is the ideal model for you. The moment that you see this unit, you will come to the realisation that this can be used in all situations. The tyres, for instance, are designed to traverse all different terrains.
