For many people with mobility problems created by things like arthritis or rheumatism then a riser recliner chair can be a real boon. Swivel recliner chairs can also be a beneficial mobility product. Too often though somebody makes a wrong decision for them and they end up with an standard recliner chair [url=http://www.chelseafanaticstore.com/Authentic-Loic-Remy-Chelsea-Jersey/]Loic Remy Jersey[/url] , mainly because they are less expensive. However this is short sighted as the person with the disability or mobility problems will not get best use out of the chair.
Riser recliner chairs are designed specifically for those people with mobility and disability problems and as such can be purchased without VAT providing the right information is supplied. This means you completing a declaration form for whoever you purchase your chair from for them to hold on file for their VAT records, a false declaration can bring prosecutions though from HM Revenue and Customs so make sure you get it right! There are two types of riser recliner chair, one which has a single motor and the other which comes with a dual motor system. If you chose the single motor chair you will find it wonderfully useful to you in the fact that it will take you easily and gently from a standing position to a sitting position without any pressure on your back knees or hips and without that jarring sensation you can get when you have to drop into a standard chair. Once you are into a sitting position, you can by continuing to press the button on the hand control set raise your feet to relieve the pressure on your ankles and help with circulation. The only disadvantage with this is that as the feet raise up the back of the chair tends to recline as the single motor drives both areas.
Dual motor riser recliner chairs have the advantage of having a separate control on the handset for the back of the chair. This is so much better if you want to watch television or read as it means that the back only reclines when you want it to not just when your feet are being raised. Obviously having a dual motor means that the chair is slightly more expensive but it could be money well spent. You should not be confused by the term dual motor it means that they have separate motors for the footrest, which also controls the rising action of the chair and the back rest but it does not mean that there is a ‘back up motor’. However most riser recliner chairs also come with battery back up systems so if a power cut happens you can gently get back to a normal position [url=http://www.chelseafanaticstore.com/Authentic-Kurt-Zouma-Chelsea-Jersey/]Kurt Zouma Jersey[/url] , no need to be trapped!
If you find you need a riser recliner chair because of your condition it may well be sensible to look at having electric adjustable beds as well, between the two of them, the chair and the bed, your life style can become so much better.

Violence on TV continues unabated: How concerned parents can respond Family Articles | May 13, 2007

Between 1998 and 2005, the number of violent incidents on prime time network TV grew by 75%. There is now an average of 4.41 instances of violence per hour during prime time [url=http://www.chelseafanaticstore.com/Authentic-John-Terry-Chelsea-Jersey/]John Terry Jersey[/url] , according to a recently released report by the Parent?s Television Council. Those statistics do not include the increase in violence on cable TV, which would probably drive the numbers higher.
For anyone watching TV, these numbers probably do not come as too much of a shock. However, given the plethora of studies which document the negative results of watching violent TV, it is surprising that this trend towards more violence has continued unabated.
TV violence causes short-term aggression [url=http://www.chelseafanaticstore.com/Authentic-John-Obi-Mikel-Chelsea-Jersey/]John Obi Mikel Jersey[/url] , fear, and desensitization
TV is not so strong an influence that all children who watch will grow up to be murderers and criminals. Nonetheless, according to the American Psychological Association, they may:
? Become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others? Be more fearful of the world around them? Behave in aggressive or harmful ways toward others? Be less likely to see anything wrong with violence
In one study done at Pennsylvania State University, researchers observed approximately 100 preschool children both before and after watching television. Some watched violent cartoons [url=http://www.chelseafanaticstore.com/Authentic-Jamal-Blackman-Chelsea-Jersey/]Jamal Blackman Jersey[/url] , and others watched completely non-violent programs.
The children who watched the violent cartoons, were ?more likely to hit out at their playmates, argue, disobey class rules, leave tasks unfinished [url=http://www.chelseafanaticstore.com/Authentic-Gary-Cahill-Chelsea-Jersey/]Gary Cahill Jersey[/url] , and were less willing to wait for things? than those children who watched nonviolent programs, according to Aletha Huston, Ph.D.
TV Violence causes long term aggression
Watching violence on TV may also have serious long-term consequences. According to a long-term study by Dr. Leonard D. Eron, watching television violence at age 8 was the strongest predictor of aggression 22 years later--stronger even than exhibiting violent behavior as children. The groundbreaking study statistically controlled for initial aggressiveness, intell. [url=http://w
