Raleigh, NC - Apr. 14, 2010 - USM, an online retailer of over 10,000 medical and mobility products, has announced the addition of two new lift chairs to its product line. The Pride LL-770S and Pride LL-770L are infinite-position lift chairs which allow users to recline to a number of positions, including the Trendelenburg position, in which the feet are elevated above the heart.
The LL-770 series lift recliner is available in two seat widths - with the S and L models respectively signifying small and large - to accommodate users of varying sizes. The LL-770S sports a 19-inch wide seat and 24-inch tall seat back; the LL-770L has a seat width of 22 inches and backrest height of 28 inches. USM recommends the S model for users of 5'0 to 5'4 in height, and the L model for users 5'5 to 6'0 in height. Both models feature a sewn pillow back and chaise pad. The infinite-position capabilities of these liftchairs allow a user to sit or lay comfortably, as well as achieve a full Trendelenburg position to aid circulation and relieve lower back pressure. This position is sometimes recommended by doctors as a preventative measure against hypotension, or low blood pressure. “We're pleased to be able to offer these new lift chairs to our customers”, said Tim Ziehwein, VP of Sales for USM. “The LL-770 is a great lift chair that's comfortable, versatile, and easy to use. Being able to offer it in multiple sizes means satisfying the needs of more of our customers, so obviously we're excited to be carrying them.”
Pride Mobility, the manufacturer of the LL-770 lift chairs, is an industry leader in mobility technology. Started as a family company in 1986, Pride's early focus was building lift chairs. The company eventually branched into producing powered wheelchairs and scooters, and in the 24 years since has become known worldwide for its innovative design philosophy.
