Lifting Cushions

Tuesday, November 15, 2005

I’ve been searching for a device that will assist an elderly person to rise from his couch. This person has moderate upper body strength but due to his arthritis it's hard for him to raise himself from a sitting position. He can stand and walk relatively fine but he is developing mild balance problems. Can you advise which products could help? There are a variety of products that will meet your request. Lifting Cushions are designed to assist people who have difficulty lowering and raising themselves from armchairs, sofas, and other furniture. Click the links below to evaluate these different Lifting Cushions: A very important factor to consider when evaluating the different Lifting Cushions we carry is the person's weight. You also mentioned his developing balance issues. This is another important mobility concern. It may be in his best interest to consider a Walker. A Walker will provide the extra balance support he will need once upright and walking. Click the link below to evaluate this inventory of Walkers:

Good luck with your search.
