Some riser recliners come with built-in pressure relief that will help those who are looking to prevent aching joints and muscles after a long period  These chairs help keep joints moving and maintain good circulation while preventing any further discomfort. Some riser recliner chairs employ memory foam which moulds to the shape of your body and helps spread the pressure more easily. If you purchase a riser recliner which does not have any pressure relief it is possible to purchase a special cushion that is able to help.

A riser recliner that employs wall-hugging technology is perfect where space is at a premium. By sliding forward as it reclines, a wall-hugging riser recliner will require only very little space behind the chair. Of course, these chairs will need more space in front to recline like this, however they are useful when used in a room with minimal space.

Battery Back-Up

There are many riser recliners that possess backup battery packs. This means that if you are sitting in your chair and there is a power cut, the chair will still be able to be operated as this battery will be able to power the chair. This is helpful as it prevents the user of the chair from becoming stuck if there is a power cut. It also enables them to maintain independence as they will require no additional help to get out of the chair even when there is loss of power.

If you wish to have a more stylish riser recliner, then there is the option to get a leather-upholstered chair in a number of different colours to suit any room. These can be upholstered in a number of different grades of leather meaning you have full control over the look of your chair. If you want the look of a leather riser recliner but at a lower cost, then you may wish to consider faux leather. This looks and feels just like real leather but does not bear the same cost.
