Lift chairs are recliners used to assist a person in standing up. Also known as power lift recliners, lift chairs are fitted with an electric motor to raise and recline the chair itself. We have great selection of lift chairs in Toronto by Pride Mobility & Golden Technologies.

Using a lift chair is not just for lower body or leg issues. Many post-op recovery processes can be greatly enhanced by using a lift chair.

The most common use for a lift chair is giving a boost to those that have difficulty getting up from a seated position. Old age, arthritis, swollen joints, and artificial joints are common reasons for having difficulty standing up.

What Are Power Lift Chairs?

Simply put, a power lift recliner is a power recliner that is designed to help lift you from a seated position to a standing position effortlessly while still providing comfort and support. Lift chairs have a secondary motor intended to transition a chair from the seated position into a raised position.

The two main positions that can be found on a power lift chair are the 45-degree position and the lift-to-standing position. The lift-to-standing position makes it easier to go quickly from seated to standing with your remote control.

Power lift chairs can also come with power reclining, and many power recliners offer power lift technology as an add-on feature for maximum versatility. Also, power lift chairs can include other features such as massage, premium fabrics, zero gravity, infinite positions, lumbar support, battery-pack adapters, and a design built for extended periods of use.

What are the types of lift chairs?

Lift chairs are differentiated by the degree of recline they can reach, recline mechanism, and position of the footrest. There are three types of lift chairs: two-position, three-position, and infinite position. All types of lift chairs will lift the user to a position where their feet are on the floor and they can easily stand up.

Two-position lift chairs recline to a 45-degree angle so that the user is only leaning back slightly. For many, this is a comfortable position for reading and watching TV.

Three-position lift chairs can recline to an almost flat position and can stop at any degree of recline in between. The user’s body will be in a slight “V” at the hips with the backrest reclined and their knees and feet are higher than their hips. This is perfect for napping or for people who are not able to sleep lying flat in a bed. It is also possible to read and watch TV with a three-position lift chair.

Infinite position lift chairs (also known as zero-gravity or full recline) can recline into a flat position (where the backrest is parallel to the floor, and anywhere in between). Some models can lift a person’s feet above his/her head into therapeutic positions. The Trendelenburg position is where the user’s feet are positioned above their head to alleviate pressure on the lower back and improve circulation. The Zero Gravity position is where the head is slightly higher than the hips and the lower body (with a slight bend in the knees) is higher than the heart. This position relieves spinal pressure, muscle tension, and improves circulation.
