As a bariatric chair, it’s capable of holding 254kg and is wider than a standard-sized chair to provide greater comfort. “The electric rise function’s been marvelous because I don’t have to bend so hard at the knees to try and get up. It’s not putting pressure on my kneecaps and I can basically go into a standing position and then get out of the chair.”
Suzanne loves the fact she can adjust the height of the three different backrest cushions by simply peeling them off the chair and velcroing them back on. “The cushions are just lovely for lumbar support,” she says. “I’m very overweight and this is a very sturdy chair. The armrests are lovely and wide so you can rest your arms on them quite happily.
“The remote to adjust the tilt, backrest and footrest is actually attached to the chair so if you drop it, it’s on a cord so you don’t have to try to scramble around on the floor and pick it up which is really handy! And the bliss of it is, it’s covered in a cooling material that you can just wash down with hot water and soap. It's really great.”
Suzanne says she’s truly amazed how one chair has made such a massive difference to her life.
“My legs are now supported how they should be and I just don’t have that constant ache in them. I can’t even describe the pain that was in them before - it was like a nine all day long. It just didn’t stop and I’m down to about a six or seven now. Which doesn’t sound a lot but in pain terms it’s huge.”
