If you or a loved one finds getting in and out of a chair challenging, consider getting a powered lift chair. These popular chairs combine the style and comfort of a traditional recliner with a remote-controlled concealed motor and lift mechanism that takes the strain out of standing up and sitting down.
Why Consider a Lift Chair?
Lift chairs are ideal for anyone with limited mobility or who struggles with balance, muscle strength, or joint pain. Standing up from a seated position puts tremendous strain on the knees, hips, and lower back, and using a cane or walker to stand up is less than ideal. Caregivers also risk injury when they help a person out of a chair because the movement is strenuous on the lower back and shoulders.
Not only do powered lift chairs help users safely transition from a sitting to a standing position, but these chairs can also be used to reduce strain while going from a standing to a sitting position. Rather than ‘flopping’ into the chair, users can raise the seat and slowly lower themselves down.
Although lift chairs are medical devices, they look and feel like regular recliners, making it easy to integrate a lift chair into any decor.
Lift Chair Features and Options
As with non-lift recliners, powered lift chairs are available in various colors, styles, and sizes. All residential lift chairs plug into any standard household outlet, and some come with a backup battery that automatically powers the chair in the event of a power failure.
Basic lift chairs are equipped with a two-button control to gently lift and lower users, making these chairs an excellent option for anyone looking for an affordable, user-friendly recliner. Premium lift chairs, specifically our Zero Gravity and Trendelenburg selection, offer advanced features such as multi-positioning options, adjustable lumbar supports, pre-set seating positions, built-in USB charging ports, seat heaters, and powered head and neck supports.
And because recliners make a great place to enjoy a nap, many lift chairs can extend into sleeper chairs that come in regular and extra-wide widths.
