Chair Features

Comfort and easy of entering and exiting a chair if you have bad knees is paramount. Here are some features to consider when looking for a beach chair if you have bad knees.


You want a chair that has great support for your back, head, neck and arms that will guide your upper body into the correct alignment and allow you to focus on finding comfortable leg positioning for your knees.


A chair with a footrest can provide relief for those with bad knees because your leg will be slightly elevated keeping blood flowing.

Tilting Seats

Chairs that have tilting seats can place your legs at a more ergonomic angle than the traditional 90-degree seat. This can also make standing take less effort and put less pressure on the thighs.
