Chairs that are suitable for patients recovering from hip surgery include rehabilitative chairs known as hip chairs. This type of assistive furniture enables patients to sit down or get up without bending at the hip, notes AliMed.
AliMed offers several hip chair products that are specially designed for post-operative hip replacement patients. These include the trademarked brands Portable Easy Up, which is similar to a portable lift chair, and the Recliner Riser, which minimizes pressure on the hip, knees and back. Other rehabilitative chairs for patients who underwent hip surgery include Ascender hip chairs, Ascender home rehab chairs, Carex uplift seat assist chairs, Drive Medical hip chairs and Drive Medical hip-high chairs, suggests AliMed.
