How bariatric conditions impact mobility
Obesity can dramatically change everything about a person’s lifestyle and is associated with multiple health barriers. Carrying extra body weight can be harder on the joints, the cardiovascular system, and the respiratory system. In combination, these effects make walking and moving around independently painful and difficult. Therefore, the Ambassador lift chair range assists the user and the carer.
Health repercussions from reduced mobility
Persons who are obese or morbidly obese often struggle with mobility, especially as they get older. Therefore the body relies on regular movement to keep the natural internal processes running (i.e. heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, etc.). Decreased mobility can lead to other health complications including reduced blood flow, muscle atrophy, swelling or edema, weakness, compromised balance, and decreased skin integrity. Immobility has also been connected to higher incidences of pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, deep vein thrombosis, prolonged hospital stays, increased medical costs, and mortality (Wu et al., 2018).
Measuring For a Bariatric Lift Chair
Before committing to an Ambassador recliner purchase, always measure your body so that you select a chair that’s right for you. You can be professionally measured if you need more guidance. By measuring your hip, thigh, and waist widths in sitting because the measurements will be inaccurate in standing. A chair that tight-fitting will rub against the skin, causing irritation and breakdown. Chairs that are too wide will not provide the user enough bodily support.
Additional tips to improve mobility and health
Select several movement exercises that fit your abilities and goals. This can include going on regular walks with family, doing walking laps around the home, conducting leg exercises from sitting or lying down (foot marches, leg lifts, foot cycling, weightlifting, etc.), or participating in leisurely activities of your choosing that promote mobility (dance, yoga, Pilates, tai-chi, etc.). Make healthy eating choices and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Go to regular physician check-ups and modify your routine where necessary.
