Rheumatoid Arthritis and how Theraposture products can make your life easier

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a long-term condition that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in joints.

The hands, feet and wrists are commonly affected, but it can also cause problems in other parts of the body. This means an assistive Leg LifterChair Bed or adjustable bed such as those supplied by Theraposture can provide a solution to getting legs in and out of bed.

Leg Lifter

Leg Lifters makes getting your legs in and out of bed easier.

The Theracare leg lifter from Theraposture is a simple yet effective product that enables users to safely and easily get their legs into bed.

This simple daily task can prove difficult or even impossible for many people who have Arthritis as their joints are immobile and painful to move. It is compatible with most types of bed whether they are non-adjustable or adjustable and when attached, comfortably lifts legs up, over and onto the sleeping surface, requiring very little movement or repositioning.

The controls have been specifically design for owners with limited hand movement as the buttons only require minimal pressure to operate.

Chair Bed

A reclining chair bed allows for independent adjustment of the leg rest and back rest.

The Chair Bed is a more substantial solution that could be suitable for people living with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

It is particularly suited for individuals who are unable to sleep in a bed and have resorted to the unhealthy situation of sleeping in a domestic chair.

The Chair Bed is an ergonomically modified dual motor adjustable chair that can provide support for individuals living with Arthritis whilst there are sitting, reclining and when in a recumbent position. Its reclining action provides an almost flat surface unlike a dual motor, meaning there is no lumber support protruding into the user’s back when lying down.

The leg and backrest can be adjusted independently to achieve an infinite range of positions and the mechanism also assists users when standing up. This riser action can be essential for safe, stable movement in and out of the chair without the risk of painful pressure on stiff and sore joints.

For more pronounced cases of Arthritis

Then a Theraposture adjustable bed or the rotational Rotoflex turning bed system maybe suitable. These solutions provide powered adjustment of the sleeping surface so greater comfort and better sleep is possible through individualised positioning.

With the ability to adjust the angle of the head and foot ends of the mattress, pressure on sore joints can be relived whilst extra support applied to appropriate parts of the body. The Rotoflex offers the ultimate solution for getting in and out of bed with complete powered movement that assists a user from a lying to an upright seated position with an ergonomic rotational action.
