The Best Recliner for Lymphedema
There are lots of lift chair options but the best recliner for Lymphedema is a durable one that lifts the legs above hip height.
What is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema is an abnormal swelling that can occur in the legs (or other limbs) if lymph nodes located throughout the body are injured or damaged. Oftentimes, a simple remedy is to elevate your legs in order to reduce the swelling.
Managing Lymphedema in the Home
A healthy lymphatic system distributes lymph fluid evenly throughout the body. Injured or damaged lymph nodes can lymph fluid to pool, commonly in the legs given the rules of gravity. Even in healthy individuals, swelling can occur in the feet or legs with prolonged standing or lengthy travel. That’s where leg elevation practices come in.
Why should the legs be elevated above your hips?
Leg elevation counteracts the pooling of blood and lymph fluid that can build up in the feet due to gravity. As long as the legs are positioned correctly and fully supported, then blood and lymphatic fluid should flow away from the feet and legs to reduce the swelling. An Ambassador Lift chair can provide just that with ease.
