Difficulty Standing Up from a Chair

As our people get older, they face more difficulty standing up from a chair.

In our part of the world, caring for aging parents at home is part of our culture, and opting for retirement homes, elderly care centres or nursing homes is often the family’s last resort.

As we get older, getting up without assistance from a chair becomes more difficult and strenuous. Repeatedly trying to get up from a chair and falling back into the seat (rocking) is common. Being pulled by the arms is painful on the joints and often results in back ache for the Carer.

Correct seating

When correctly seated with the feet flat on the ground, the angle of the hips and knees should be no less than 90 degrees. This avoids the need to rock out of the chair. Your choice of seating is important, as well as choosing the correct lifting device that will bring you to your feet, eliminating difficulty standing up from a chair, and reducing effort by 80%.
