Buy The Best Chairs For Huntington’s Disease At Seating Matters

Huntington’s disease is a hereditary condition. This disease works against nerve cells in your brain which can result in someone’s mobility, movement, behaviour and cognitive function being affected. A chair that is designed for someone with this disease can really help to improve their life and can provide a lot of amazing benefits. 

  1. Prevents Injuries – Many people opt for chairs that are completely upholstered. This is because those suffering with Huntington’s can often lose control over their limb movement and hurt themselves by hitting off of metal components. Having a chair that is completely upholstered helps to prevent any injuries from occurring. 
  2. Pressure Relief – Huntington’s disease can cause patients to lose weight rapidly and this can result in areas of their body being uncomfortable to sit on like their elbows or pelvis as these can constantly be knocking against the chair. This can lead to pressure injuries forming. Getting a chair that accommodates pressure relief is a great way to solve this problem. 
  3. Pelvic Positioning – Lastly, those suffering from this disease need to have a chair that can be angled backwards, allowing for the pelvis to be situated lower than the knees. Many people suffer from sliding forwards in their chairs due to their pelvis and this can help stop that. It also helps those who suffer from involuntary movements to stop sliding out of their chairs.
