Recline… with Oak Tree
Putting your feet up – it’s literally synonymous with relaxing because taking the weight of your feet just feels so wonderful. And what you may not know is that not only does it feel good – it’s very good for you too.
It’s all about the height that your raise your feet to – a little footstool doesn’t quite cut it. For the best in comfort and a wealth of health benefits, you need to raise your feet higher than your hips – which is why the unique high leg lift motor in our rise and recline chairs is so special. Using only two simple buttons, the back reclines as the leg rest rises, keeping you in a comfortable 90 degree angle the whole time.
Amazing health benefits
If you sit still for long periods with your feet lower than the rest of your body, fluid can begin to collect the in the calves, ankles and feet, causing swelling which can become quite painful. It can also lead to varicose veins. Sitting with your feet raised above your hips is brilliant for your circulation, making it easier for your heart to pump blood all the way around your body, and preventing or alleviating swelling in the lower legs. Reclining the back rest takes the pressure off your spine and helps alleviate back pain too.
You may feel you’re ‘not ready’ to take the plunge with a rise and recline chair, especially if getting in and out poses you no problems. But if you think you might need one in the coming years, why delay investing in a chair that will not only bring you wonderful comfort, but help support your health. You can start enjoying these brilliant benefits straight away!
