Traditional high back and swivel orthopaedic chairs clarified:

When we get older, being in the exact same position for lengthy time periods can end up being strained and needing assistance or assistance whenever sitting and moving up off a chair, likewise if the chair is too low then our lower limbs, hips or arms will not always support the body before it reaches the seat when lowering, leading to the normal 'plopping' down in the armchair.
