How Riser Recliner chairs help with fluid retention

Riser Recliner chairs are a great option for patients who suffer from fluid retention. As you know, the fluid build up within the body causes the affected area to become swollen. Unfortunately, the predominantly affected areas tend to be the places of the body that are in need the most – the feet and ankles.

Within this article, we are covering the ways in which rise and recline chairs can offer your patients relief from the pressure and pain that can be experienced from fluid retention.

Leg elevation

Those who suffer from fluid retention will have to have methods to improve their blood circulation. Riser recliners allow for their legs to be raised gently at the touch of a button. This elevation will relieve the pressure of their legs and for the blood to gradually flow around the body again. Therefore, your client will have the benefits of relaxing in a comfortable chair without compromising their swollen tissue.

Depending on your patient’s requirements, you can opt for a dual motor chair which allows the patient to remain in an upright position as they elevate their legs.


No two chairs are the same. All of our chairs are made to measure. We put our customers first to ensure that all of their specific requirements are met in order to maintain maximum comfort. The rise and recline functionality helps patients get in and out of their chair and reduce any excessive pressure being placed on affected areas during this manoeuvre.

Additional features

Each chair has the option to add features that will enhance the patients seating experience. Opting to add the massage system to the chair can help your patient relax as the massage disperses the fluid around the body. Not only is this good for easing the discomfort, but it can also reduce the size of the swelling.

Therefore, your patient can sit back and relax knowing that they are being supported at all times.
