Taking the strain away from sitting down and getting up, rise-and-recline armchairs can be a godsend to those suffering from mobility issues. All models will help improve your quality of life, but you might also want to consider adding a heating function to your rise-and-recline chair for optimal comfort and enhanced health benefits.
Here are just four ways a heating function can help.
1. Improves Blood Flow
When your body gets colder, the blood vessels contract, making it harder for blood to deliver oxygen and nutrients to your cells while removing waste materials. Unfortunately, rise-and-recliner chairs are often positioned in larger rooms, such as living rooms, that can be hard to keep heated, especially during the winter months. If you add a heating function, you’ll be able to stay warm regardless of the weather, and the heat will help dilate your blood vessels and stimulate circulation.
2. Soothes the Joints
If you suffer from mobility issues, you’ve probably used heat pads across certain parts of your body to help ease discomfort, pain, and stiffness. That’s because heat helps loosen stiff joints, and muscles are relaxed to place less pressure on your joints and tendons. When you’re seated for longer periods, it’s natural for your joints and muscles to become stiffer, which can be a real worry. Using a heating function can help keep your body limber.
3. Allows You To Stay Put
There are obviously other ways to get warm. If you find things getting chilly towards the end of the day, you can go change into something warmer, take a hot shower or bath, or go fetch a blanket. The problem is that all of those tasks become that much harder when you suffer from mobility issues. If possible, it’s much nicer to get warm without also having to get up, and turning on your rise-and-recline armchair’s heating function can provide that service.
4. Enhances Comfort
At the end of the day, comfort matters when you want to sit back and talk to friends, read a book, watch TV, or simply be alone with your own thoughts, and it’s much easier to relax and get comfortable when you’re also warm and cosy.
