How to choose a lift chair?
Electric lift chairs or ‘rise & recline chairs’ are designed to help people stand from a seated position and/or assist people to recline the chair back and elevate their legs for either comfort or a medical condition.
By gently raising the chair up, the user can safely transfer on and off the chair from a partial or nearly standing position. The benefit of this is that it greatly assists those with poor shoulder, arm or hand strength and provides a stable base for instability or weak legs. The back recline and leg raise function allow a person to obtain an optimal seated position with the leg rest also elevated for comfort or to assist in circulation.
What are the benefits of using a lift chair?
The benefits of using a lift chair may include:
Reduction in shoulder fatigue compared to manual recliners.
Increase in functionality and wellbeing by assisting transfers.
Correct posture with infinite seating positions.
Leg elevation to assist in fluid reduction and promotion of circulation.
Studies have proven that lift chairs maintain muscle tone as a result of lower skeletal joint fatigue and degeneration.
Lift chairs come in a range of sizes from petite to extra extra large in a range of fabrics and colours to suit individual tastes. They also come with a choice of single or dual motors.

How to choose the correct chair sizing?
Lift chairs are made in a range of sizes to suit different size people. It is important to get the correct size, ensuring correct posture is maintained and reducing the chances of pressure build up to the skin. Seat width and depth, seat height, backrest height, width and shape along with the length and height of armrest are all important to consider. Careful consideration of the weight capacity of the lift chair is also important.
How to choose the right lift chair comfort?
As you will spend considerable time in your lift chair, ensuring comfort is important. All factors need to be considered but if you are not comfortable in your chair the benefits can be substantially reduced.
How to choose between a Single or dual motor lift chair?
Single motor lift chairs have a single control operating the back recline whilst the leg rest is raised. The control has two buttons, up and down which can be easiest for those with poor cognitive abilities.
Dual motor lift chairs generally have independent controls for the backrest and footrest. This enables the user to select a greater range of positions such as a straight backrest and elevated footrest. These chairs generally also recline further for people requiring a more horizontal position. Dual motor lift chairs will have four buttons, up and down for each of the two motors.
What if I have specific user needs?
Consideration needs to be given to the users ability to use a multi button control on a dual motor against a two button control on a single motor lift chair. Thought also needs to be given to the skin integrity of the user as fabric choice may have a bearing on outcomes. Some chairs come with two way stretch material and air bladders to assist in relieving pressure on the skin.
Correct assessment and fitting by trained professionals is advised to ensure the correct choice is made the first time.
What are the Environmental factors of a lift chair?
Careful thought as to the position of the lift chair in the room is important. Standard one and two motor lift chairs require clearance behind the chair to allow the backrest to recline and must therefore be positioned away from the wall. To avoid this issue some chairs have a ‘space saver’ mechanism which can be positioned as close as 15cm from the wall.
The availability of a power supply close to the chair will ensure power cables do not create a trip hazard.
