Difficulty Standing Up from a Chair
Amman | Beirut| Dubai | West Africa
Aging in place is more than just the latest trend. It’s about enjoying the next stage of life by making sure the home you love is safe and secure. Despite diverse backgrounds and varying income levels, seniors across the country, and around the world, are attempting to solve the problem of aging in place. “The ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”
As loved ones get older, they face more difficulty standing up from a chair.
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.
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%.
