Mobility - Lift Chairs

Lift chairs are available in a range of models with a variety of positions, and can provide great assistance and comfort for those with mobility problems.  A Lift Chair has a powered lifting mechanism that pushes the entire chair up from its base, and this enables a user to easily move to a standing position. Most lift chairs use electric motors, and some even have a battery backup in case of a power outage, to improve reliability. Lift Chairs can be bought in a range of fabrics, recline positions, weight capacities, and sizes. In fact there are so many options for sizing and recline positions that a lift chair can be found to accommodate almost anyone’s mobility needs.

Typically Life Chairs are available in Two Position, Three Position, Infinite Position, Recline Position, Zero Gravity or Heavy Duty. 

A two-position lift chair has two backrest settings – an upright and a slight recline. The slight recline allows the backrest to recline about 30 degrees for a comfortable TV viewing or reading position. Two position lift chairs are ideal for people who spend time sitting upright or slightly reclined.    A three-position lift chair has three seatback positions: upright, TV recline, and full recline. The full recline setting is good for resting and napping. However, it does not lie out completely flat so it isn't really suited to prolonged periods of sleep.  Most Life Chairs come with remote controls to help with ease of operation.

It is very important to consider your personal mobility needs when purchasing a Lift Chair.  As there are so many variations in design and specification of Lift Chair, ensure that you fully explore your options.  Prices can start from $400, but the more complex mechanism of the Lift Chair, then prices can go above $1000’s. A Lift Chair usually works with a weight between 375 and 450 lbs. There are some models that can handle weights up to 700 lbs.  Additional features to be taken into account are optional extras such as built-in heating, massage functions, cup-holders, snack trays and location of controls.
