A Comfy Wheel Chair Is More Than Equipment For A Disabled

Mostly all kinds of disability affect your mobility to some extent. While disabilities like Parkinson's and Lou Gehrig's affect your mobility to a great extent. Even the strong-willed people become depressed under such conditions. Self-pity and self-condemnation take hold in them.

Under such grim conditions, the person is bound to become cynical. “Solitary confinement” is one of the greatest types of punishment. In such a grave situation, the importance of mobility is apparent more than ever.

Think over…What if some one takes a person on a wheel-chair to the lush green lawns of the park nearby! Everyday for some hours, away from the dark corners of your bedroom! By seeing the world moving around, the positive vibrations of the green wealth, the pleasant view of the sun and the moon, good effects will stay in the patient’s mind. This may not have any impact on the physical disability but the depressed mind will cry in joy.

Hence a wheel chair is more than equipment for a person whose mobility is hampered because of disability. There are many types of wheel chairs available these days. One recommended option is lift chairs.

Lift chairs help the disable person get up from the sitting position and back. A sense of enjoyment in living the normal life, temporarily though, is a great psychological advantage. Persons suffering from knee and hip problems due to accidents or muscular weakness will find the services of the lift chair invaluable.

There are many types of multi-purpose lift chairs suitable for patients of all types of disabilities. These chairs also serve the purpose of a recliner, couch, an ordinary chair or a sofa.

Well, you need to think practically from the point of view of the patient. As per the needs of the patient the adjustable lift chair or an ordinary wheel chair will be picked.

Most of the lift chairs are capable of carrying the weight between 375 lbs to 450 lbs. Take special care about the measurement of the chair. If it is under-sized or over-sized, the very purpose of providing comfort to the patient is destroyed. You can also go for an automatic lift chair that is battery-operated and has provisions for 2 to 3 positions. Some lift chairs have massaging units and hearing apparatus.

Last but not the least, buy the lift chair from a company that is in the product line for many years and have reputation of quality. Such chairs carry a manufacturers warranty for 3 to 4 years.
