Parkinson’s Disease Chairs

Many people require a specialist chair to help improve their quality of life when they suffer from Parkinson’s disease. At Seating Matters, we can provide the best Parkinson’s disease chair that is high-quality and clinically tested. When it comes to choosing a chair for those suffering from parkinsons, there is a lot to consider. Here, we are taking you through our top tips for choosing the right chair and the variety of chairs that we offer at Seating Matters.  

Choosing A Parkinson’s Chair 

With so many different chairs to choose from, it can be difficult knowing which one is the best for Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s causes damage to the brain which leads to uncontrollable tremors and shaking in the body. In can also cause slow movement, decrease mobility and stiff muscles. When looking for a Parkinson’s disease chair, consider the following. 

  • Different Lifting Options – For some people, it can be handy to have a range of different lifting options as part of the chair. This is usually categorised at the regular rise and lift, a middle setting offering less tilt to provide extra support for the feet when standing up, and finally, a vertical rise movement that does not provide the tilting of the seat at all. Having these different options is a great way to help prevent falls. 
  • Tilt-In-Space – This is also something to consider as it can help to maintain a healthy posture. Patients can be tilted backwards but also maintain their hip angle which means less pressure on the posterior and sacrum. So, even if they are shaking from Parkinson’s disease, this feature on the chair will help them to keep their position.
