Not all chairs come in all sizes, your supplier will provide advice when fitting your chair. The weight range for your choice of chair depends on the mechanism you choose.

Advice from Independent Occupational Therapist Kate Sheehan

Choice is about ensuring that you select the right combination of chair style, seat cushion, rise recliner mechanism and correct size of chair to ensure that you purchase a rise recliner that truly delivers personal comfort for you. Repose specialise in bespoke rise recliners designed to your particular measurements. Your supplier will work with you in all of these key areas to ensure that you receive the right chair.

Three important measurements that your supplier will consider when fitting you for your rise recliner:

  • Seat Depth - to ensure your thighs are well supported
  • Seat Height - good posture requires your feet to be placed firmly on the ground
  • Seat Width - the correct width will help to support your hips and arms.

In the correct chair, you should:

  • be able to sit with your bottom at the back of the seat with your feet flat on the floor
  • have your hips, knees and ankles supported in 90º angles
  • have approximately an inch or 25mm between the back of your knees and the seat
  • be able to sit in the seat with enough room to sit with your normal clothing on, to provide support, but not rub your legs
  • be able to sit with your arms relaxed on the arm rests without pushing up or dragging down on your shoulders.
