What Is Mobility Furniture?

Mobility furniture is specifically designed to aid those with mobility challenges. These products are designed to improve comfort, mobility, and quality of life. They give individuals the ability to quickly and easily adjust their position, thus alleviating joint pressure. They additionally are designed to allow individuals to shift from a horizontal to vertical position. This transition ensures as little pain and trouble as possible, which is how they allow individuals to benefit from increased independence. 

As such, mobility furniture is not just designed to be functional! It is also designed to completely transform the lives of users, turning their homes into comfortable and accessible environments. Two of the main ‘types’ of mobility furniture are riser recliner chairs and adjustable beds. These can help users to relax in their downtime or go to sleep in a more comfortable and supportive manner. 

Adjustable Bed

So, what actually is an adjustable bed? These differ from ‘normal’ beds in that they are not static. Instead, these beds have ‘hinges’ in the frame. This means that different parts of the bed can move, whether you need your feet or head elevated. As such, these beds are a great asset in ‘customising’ your sleeping position. This means a better night’s sleep, finding the perfect angle for reading, or even watching TV free from the discomfort of conditions such as arthritis.

These beds cost more than your traditional bed. However, the vast amount of benefits they offer, and their lifespan, make them an excellent investment. You can moreover customise them to have several features, such as grab rails and drawers. Alternatively, you can even install a massage feature!

Riser Recliner Chairs

Riser recliners are a lot more than just a chair. They transform comfort and mobility, making relaxing in your home the ultimate breeze. Using electronic motors, these chairs can assist you with standing up and sitting down. You can also recline forward or backward, depending on your mobility needs. As a result, these chairs are the perfect way to unwind, whether you’re reading a book or watching tv. Whether you want our flagship chair, the Grosvenor, or a riser recliner chair with sleek and modern aesthetics, there’s an option for everyone. 

Just make sure to practise using your chair at first, as the sensation of reclining back can feel ‘uncomfortable’ or awkward at first. Moreover, you should always ensure that you purchase a made-to-measure chair, like those Grosvenor offers. This is because any chair not built to your specific needs could lead to issues, ranging from sores through to exacerbating joint pain. 

Who Needs Mobility Furniture? 

Individuals of all needs and lifestyles can use mobility furniture, designed for versatile use. Users who often require this furniture are those with mobility challenges. This may be due to their age, a health condition, temporary impairment or any other ailment that relates to joints and pain. 

As such, many sufferers from arthritis might find mobility furniture transformative. The furniture plays a crucial role in helping individuals relax, achieve greater independence in moving around their home or prioritise health. Plus, failure to use these chairs (or improper furniture!) could lead to an increased risk of injury. 

For elderly individuals in particular, who may have weaker bones, mobility furniture may be a fundamental part of maintaining independence. This is instead of requiring a caregiver or another individual to help them travel around their home. As mobility naturally decreases with age, adjustable beds and riser recliner chairs are a great way to mitigate any risk of falls. They can also improve sleep quality and provide relief from aches and pains, allowing seniors to maintain dignity, comfort and autonomy. 

People suffering from low mobility and conditions such as arthritis, injuries to their backs or legs, or physical difficulties may find relief using mobility furniture. This is particularly relevant in the case of motorised mobility furniture. This enables any individual with limited strength or balance to change position with complete ease, and without assistance. As such, mobility furniture can also be a huge asset to those nearing end-of-life care. This is because they may be too weak to reposition themselves, meaning adjustable beds and riser recliners can allow them greater quality of life.
