Materials: Poang chair & footstool Description: We all love Poang chairs. Unfortunately, their design can make you have a position so low that elderly people may have some difficulties to sit up and down. We need the seat to be horizontal and the back less angled.
Just mount the lower structure of the Poang and screw (from down) to it the structure of the footstool. Then use the front screw to join the upper structure of the chair but not the one in the back. Instead of this union, screw the upper structure to the footstool.
You can add another screw for the arms not to bend and the footstool board to add extra stiffness to the seat.
