Being seated for a large portion of the day can put a huge amount of stress on the lower half of the body, leaving 19% of our total weight on our legs and feet. With all that pressure, it’s important to make sure our sitting position is not only comfortable, but also promotes healthy joints and muscles.

Happy Christmas from all of us at Recliners!
Twas the week before Christmas and all was still in the Recliners workshop…
The elves have put the final touches to the last of the Christmas orders, the reindeers have been sent on their way and now it’s just a few of us left here in the Recliners workshop to sweep the floors and close things down for another year.
When most clients sit in a chair for the first time, it’s natural for them to focus on how it feels on key areas such as the buttocks, thighs and back. After all, these areas take the majority of our weight when seated, so making sure they feel comfortable is essential.
But it’s important to pay attention to how much the footrest can affect comfort as well. When positioned correctly, a footrest can help distribute nearly a fifth of a patient’s weight.
