Ambassador Lift Chair
Ambassador lift chairs are designed to assist the mobility of people with increased body weight and limited personal movement. The following features about the Ambassador lift chair range are what set it apart from everyday lift chairs. Things to look for in a durable lift chair, some of which are applicable to both bariatric and average-weighing individuals:
Every durable recliner product listed online or in stores should have details about weight capacity. If the user is in the bariatric weight category, it is essential to purchase a lift recliner that was designed to hold a bariatric weight capacity. Using a lift chair for average weight will rapidly decrease the life of the chair and potentially turn into a dangerous situation.
The Ambassador Lift Chair range is designed on a safe lifting load weight recommendation and meets Australian Standards.
Some frame structures are welded together. While others are held together with heavy, industrial nuts and bolts. The benefit of having a frame that is held together with bolts is that, in the event that something in the frame requires repair, the entirety of the frame wouldn’t need replacing like it would in a welded structure. Ambassador provides a 5 year warranty on it’s frame.
Ambassador Lift Chairs has over 25 years of experience in designing electric lift and recline chairs. Each chair includes custom made mechanisms and components, exclusively for Ambassador, which are extra strong, durable and medical grade. Therefore providing greater lifting capacity than some other lift and recliner chair on the market.
Make sure that the chair has a long-lasting motor (with a back-up battery) that will lift and lower the person all of the way without straining or losing power. Ambassador provides a 5 year warranty on it’s Medical Grade Electrics.
Like any recliner, the user needs excellent joint support for prolonged periods of sitting. The back support should contour well to your spine. For typical spine shapes, there should be extra padding for the lower back in order to support the curvature and filling potential gaps between the back and the cushion.
Leg Elevation Above Hip Height
High-quality recliners should provide foot elevation at multiple heights and angles. Elevating the feet reduces stress on the lower extremities as well as the hips, which can be a major concern for bariatric individuals. Ambassador leg elevation is the highest on the market and customisable to increase if needed for individual medical needs. Read more here.
Multiple Angle Recline
The Ambassador Lift Chair range offers independent foot and back functions. The lift chair should offer a wide variety of recline angles to meet unique sitting needs that change throughout the day. Reclining features also open up the lungs and the diaphragm in order to facilitate better breathing.
If a user has special medical needs paired with bariatric conditions, it would be wise to consult with a medical professional about what other considerations should be made about a durable lift recliner. This can include chronic joint problems, heart conditions, respiratory diseases, cancer, non-healing pressure ulcers, paralysis to any extent, etc.
