Riser Recliner Chairs

What are riser recliners and why can one be helpful?

When getting out of your chair or sofa becomes difficult or you find yourself rocking in order to raise yourself it is time for a new chair.  A riser recliner can help make standing up easier and safer at the touch of a button. The recline action of the chairs also means you can put your feet up and relax.  The right chair for you can bring comfort, good posture and health benefits.  So, as well as being very comfortable and helping you stand our riser recliners help your circulation and reduce the pressure on your neck, back and joints.

Which riser recliner is right for me?

At Fortuna Mobility we are very passionate about seating and believe that the correct size of chair for you is the most important consideration.  So we stock a variety of sizes and every type of riser recliner for you to try out in store which include the following mechanisms:

  • single motor (with just 2 buttons it is very simple to use)
  • dual motor (which will allow for a greater range of positions)
  • wallhuggers
  • single motor tilt-in-space
  • dual motor tilt-in-space
  • tilt-in-space wallhuggers

All the types of mechanisms listed above have a choice of back style and a huge range of upholstery and fabric choices.

Alternatively, you can consider other options from our range which may suit you better for instance a high back or fireside chair, furniture raisers or our SitnStand portable, smart, rising seat.  Our healthcare chair range includes many other options like integral pressure relief options and waterproof, breathable fabrics.



Why Fortuna is the right choice

Advice: Our experienced team can advise you on the many features and functions of our chairs.  By taking measurements and completing a full chair assessment we help you choose the most suitable model, to match your measurements, budget and requirements. But more importantly keep you independent and comfortable.

Choice: We have an extensive range of chairs in-store which includes every type of riser recliner chair and all sizes.  Many of our customers choose our made-to-measure service and we can manufacture your riser recliner to fit your measurements exactly in a wide variety of fabric choices.

Service: We have chosen our range of chairs carefully, based on their reliability and quality and most include a five-year warranty. We offer chair assessments, home visits and a full set up service on delivery. Our staff can guide and assist throughout the whole process and if you need any advice later, they will be happy to help.

Our assessment service includes:

  • a full measuring consultation which includes seat height, depth and width, back and arm height.
  • consideration of any medical conditions.
  • how long you will spend in your chair?
  • how you sit?
  • how you transfer or stand from your chair?
  • do you have joint and back pain?
  • any swollen ankles or feet?
  • any pain when seated?

Some medical conditions may change over time and may mean that your seating needs alter in the future and some chairs can accommodate and future proof these changes.
