Taking A Look At Electric Lift Chair Manufacturers

Electric lift chairs have gone a long way since their humble beginnings. Many elderly and disabled have great difficulty getting up after being seated for an extended period of time, and electric liftchairs were designed to aide the user in standing up. At the beginning, electric liftchairs were no more than modified recliners, lacking both features and safety. Nowadays, electric power chairs can come with everything short of the kitchen sink.

Lift chairs began to take root in the early 80’s, as people were looking to give their elderly parents more freedom and mobility around the house. Simply put, many families installed lift systems onto their living room recliners. The result was a “lift chair” that wasn’t reliable – the frames and upholstery were never designed to be lifted and raised constantly, thus causing the frame of the chair to break frequently. As if that wasn’t dangerous enough, the earliest lift systems were spring based. Unlike the systems we use today, spring based systems simply lifted and lowered with the press of a button. Thus, if one accidentally pressed the button they could be thrown off their seat!

The lack of quality liftchairs could directly be attributed to the lack of dedicated power chair companies. This changed as soon as Pride Mobility and Golden Technologies started making lift chairs. In the late 80’s, these two companies took electric lift chairs to the next level: they began by building the chairs from the ground up. That meant better construction and better quality parts, resulting in a product that was designed to be lifted in the air constantly. They also removed the spring lift and replaced it with electric motors; thus, the liftchair would only raise and lower when the button was pressed, greatly improving safety.

While there are many different companies that make electric power chairs, Pride Mobility and Golden Technology have been around the longest and have the best reputation. When these two companies came to fruition in the 80’s, many of the old style lift chair manufacturers were simply not able to compete with the vastly superior product and went out of business. These days, both companies have expanded and offer a wide array of products, including electric wheelchairs, scooters, and lift ramps. However, electric lift chairs have been, and always will be, their bread and butter.

What is the best mobility aid to use for rising out of a chair?

4 Comments 06 October 2010

Question by Lidybeff: What is the best mobility aid to use for rising out of a chair?
At this stage I don’t want to go spending a fortune on one of those chairs that lifts up, as we don’t know how long I will be in this state. Meantime I am trying to work out what to get to help me to get out of my chair. I had thought a walking frame or something, but I don’t know if there is something more suitable. All advice will be gratefully received.

Answer by SeaEff
If you think you will need it only short term then a walking frame would probably do the job fine.
Many chairs at home are very low, you can get something to raise the height of your chair which makes it easier to stand without help. I’ll edit if I can find one similar online.
When you are ready to stand up, shuffle your bottom as far forward on the seat as you can, again it makes standing easier.

edit – here’s a link, and they are not as expensive as I thought they might be! http://www.betterlifehealthcare.com/view_product.php?prodID=6782
