Why Should I Rent a Lift Chair After Surgery or Injury?

Posted by Rebecca Coughlin, Home Medical Equipment Specialist on Apr 12th 2024

After surgery or injury, individuals typically lack the strength needed to stand from existing chairs or beds. A rental lift chair’s sit-to-stand assistance will raise and lower an individual, preventing excessive strain. Plus, the plush recliners offer a comfortable place to recover with customized positioning.

Renting a lift chair after surgery or injury can be incredibly beneficial for several reasons:

Comfort and Support: Lift chairs are designed to provide comfort and support, which is crucial during the recovery period after surgery or injury. The various reclining positions allow you to find the most comfortable position based on your needs, whether you need to elevate your legs, recline slightly, or sit upright.

Ease of Use: Lift chairs have a motorized lifting mechanism that gently lifts the user to a standing position, making it much easier to get in and out of the chair, especially when mobility is limited due to surgery or injury. This reduces the risk of strain or injury from trying to stand up from a regular chair.

Safety: The lifting mechanism of lift chairs provides additional safety and stability, reducing the risk of falls or accidents during the recovery process. This is particularly important for individuals who may be at a higher risk of falling due to weakness or instability.

Independence: By renting a lift chair, you can maintain a level of independence during your recovery. You will not have to rely on others as much for assistance with getting in and out of chairs, which can be empowering and improve your overall sense of well-being.

Temporary Solution: Renting a lift chair provides a temporary solution for your recovery period. Once you have fully recovered and regained your mobility, you can return the lift chair without the long-term commitment or expense of purchasing one.

Which Lift Chair Is Right for Me?

3 Position Lift Chairs have a simple up and down hand control to recline and lift the chair. The chair will move as one when you hold the down button which raises the legs and begins to recline the back. The back will eventually recline to a 30-degree angle once the legs are fully lifted.

Will Insurance Cover a Rental Lift Chair?

In short, no, because most insurances only cover the seat lift mechanism of the lift chair if you qualify, which means insurance will not pay for the actual chair part of the lift recliner. In addition, most insurances will not cover short term rentals.
