If there’s one thing that everyone should look forward to at the end of a long day, it’s a comfortable place to rest. While traditional recliners and beds are comfortable, they aren’t always a safe solution for those with impaired mobility. If you or a loved one struggles with transitioning from a seated to standing position, lift recliners are a perfect solution.
While they may look like ordinary reclining chairs at first glance, lift chairs come equipped with powerful motorized systems to gently lift users from a seated to standing position with the press of a button. They’re perfect for those struggling with chronic illness, recovering from surgery, or anyone in need of an extra helping hand.
If you’re shopping for a lift chair for you or a loved one, the choices can seem overwhelming. How many motors do you need? What size lift chair? What add-ons or additional features should you consider?
