Additional Lift Chair Features

Selecting additional options for a lift chair is a great way to customize the lift chair so that it fits your unique preferences and needs. Lift chairs aid in providing safety while assisting with standing upright. Lift Chairs are extremely comfortable and offer many therapeutic benefits. Below we will discuss the available options that will make your lift chair the ultimate in comfort and style.


There are a few major categories of lift chairs. You will have the option to choose between a two-position, three-position, or infinite position lift chair. If you are comfortable with mild recline a two-position lift chair will work just fine. A three-position lift chair will enable you to lie flat which may aid in pressure relief and assist with sleeping. An infinite position lift chair means you can select any position from seated to lying flat. If you plan to sleep in your lift chair we highly suggest an infinite position lift chair for maximum comfort.

Heat and Massage

The heat and massage function creates maximum therapeutic benefit. The heat function is a nice feature on those frigid winter evenings. The heat will also increase circulation, ease sore muscles, decrease joint stiffness, and increase blood flow.

Adding the massage function to your lift chair will assist with reducing stress and easing tension. Some studies have shown massage therapy may assist with alleviating headaches and reducing anxiety. Rather than booking an appointment with your local massage therapist, you can just incorporate this feature into your lift chair and start your therapeutic massage with the push of a button.

Footrest Extension

If you are on the taller side it is always an option to add on footrest extensions. Adding this extension will ensure your legs and feet will not hang over the edge. This increases circulation and will increase our overall comfort. The padded footrest extension would come in the same color fabric as the lift chair.

Fabric Upgrades

When selecting the lift chair fabric you must think about who will be using the chair. If the client needs to eat while in the chair it may be important to choose a fabric that can be easily cleaned such as, such as vinyl. All Golden Technologies lift chairs are eligible to be upgraded to Brisa. Brisa is a unique fabric that offers protection against spills, moisture, bacteria, and odors. It really provides a comprehensive list of benefits that can support multiple users with different issues. Brisa® is another great option for certain people. It is an incredibly soft and luxurious faux leather fabric available exclusively on lift chairs from Golden Technologies. Brisa is the first polyurethane fabric designed with a unique ventilation system that enables it to breathe, keeping you cool and comfortable, no matter how long you use the chair. Brisa’s subtle grain pattern is created through a natural process that simulates the supple surface of genuine leather. Brisa comes in many wonderful color options that will make your home.
