Our article is designed to provide you with an overview of what exactly a lift chair is, what it’s used for, how it is used, and what the true benefits are. Our evaluation at Suncoast Mobility focused on the seat and back dimensions, upholstery options, recline positions, and multiple motors for independent movement of the back and footrests to aid in a variety of seat positions. Power lift recliners can drastically increase overall wellbeing for both disabled and able-bodied users and these are your best options for 2024.

What is a Power Lift Chair Recliner?

A lift chair is a functioning piece of medical equipment that looks almost identical to a standard recliner. The difference is that the lift chair contains a powered lifting system that can be controlled by remote to tilt the base and back forward to assist the user to a standing position. The user operates the lift chair by a remote rather instead of the standard lever or switch. There are a variety of names used to describe a lift chair recliner. You may see them marketed as power lift recliners, 2-position lift chairs,  3-position lift chairs, or infinite position lift chairs, but each of these terms falls under the umbrella of lift chairs.

Lift chair recliners will increase the quality of life for elderly, people with disabilities, any one who uses one. They allow the user to gradually reach a standing position in a safe manner. Most lift chairs have multiple positions for sitting, resting, watching tv /reading, and sleeping. Lift chairs are available in multiple sizes and designs styles including numerous optional features. The sizes range from small to large widths, petite to tall heights, and varies upholstery options. You also have to consider the number of positions and whether or not you want to add heat/vibrate heat, and extended footrest and other options. Lift chairs can be customized to suit your specific needs and built to to address your needs.

The Most Important Features to Consider

  • Positions. The number of positions your lift chair offers is critical to your comfort. This is, in our opinion, the most important thing to consider aside from the weight capacity. 
  • Upholstery. Do you eat or drink in your chair? Or does the person who will use the chair have incontinence issues? Brisa fabric is easily cleaned compared to standard fabrics.
  • Size and weight. You must consider the dimensions of your lift chair so it fits appropriately in the room of your choice. The weight capacity is also important as do not want to add extra stress onto your chair.
  • Additional Features. Some of these features include heat / vibrate, twilight positioning, USB port, pop out trays, and a foot rest extension. Some of these features may require the chair to be built.
