Recliner chair raiser

Recliner chair raiserDorothy’s recliner chair was too low in the seat, causing difficulty for her in standing up. She was also unable to operate the recliner mechanism.

A heavy frame was constructed and bolted to the metal base of the chair. The frame was made longer than the original base to ensure stability when the chair was fully reclined. Slipper castors were fitted to allow the chair to be moved but to provide some resistance so that it did not move when reclined. A quarter “ship’s wheel” was attached to the lever mechanism to allow Dorothy to access the recliner mechanism in either the raised or lowered position.

Dorothy is now able to get up from the chair much more easily and to operate the recliner mechanism without assistance.
