Choosing a Lift Chair

Help to select the right Lift Chair

It is not uncommon among older people to face difficulty when trying to sit down or to go from sitting to standing if they have joint pain or fatigue quickly. This simple task can be a difficult exercise in lower body strength for those who are mobility-impaired. Thankfully lift chairs make sitting down and standing back up significantly easier. Lift chairs are designed with the elderly, and mobility impaired in mind to make their lives easier and dramatically reduce the risk of injury from sitting and standing.

Three Way or Three Position Lift Chairs

A Three Position Lift Chair can almost reach a full recline (it does not achieve a perfect horizontal line, there is a slight "V" where the back and seat meet) and can recline to any position in-between straight and its fully reclined position.

Infinite Position

An Infinite Position Lift Chair is capable of achieving a fully reclined position. Infinite position lift chairs have dual motors, one for the back and one for the legs, which allows for an "infinite" amount of positions that can be achieved and also allow the user to have their feet higher than the heart.
