My O/H bought me a leather recliner/rise electric chair a few months ago cost nearly £1000 so you are indeed very lucky to have have been given one of these chairs free gratis. I find mine is a great help to me......so good luck with yours.
we also purchased a reclining chair . Had through our community mobility shop . Very dissapointed in the comfort . It has an Iron frame and the seat support is also iron . The cushioning is so thin you can feel the frame through it ..
The electric part is fine
At the moment i have 3 cushions to support my back in my armchair, a few weeks ago i ordered one of these stressless chairs for myself, you don`t need cushions with them and they move with you. It seemed very comfortable in the shop - costing about £900 they would need to be.it will be another couple of weeks before it`s delivered.
Does anyone else have one and if so how do you get on with it?
Perhaps i should have got an electric one instead.
Hi Joval, we have a friend who swears by her stressless chair, she has the foot stool as well. Hope you love yours when it arrives....

Hi, I was searching for the recliners. And got a few options in this article “Best Reclining Chairs for Parkinson’s Patients”. Here in this article, I have found “SitnStand Portable Smart Rising Seat”. I want to know if this seat is helpful in PD. If anyone has bought it previously, then please help me.
