Riser Recliners Advice – Choosing a Chair
Once you have decided that a Riser Recliner Armchair is right for you, you need to think in a little more detail about what you need your chair to do.
The motors of the chair
Most chairs will have either one or two motors. All chairs deliver a ‘Full Rise’ which enables you to get out of the chair with far greater ease than a traditional arm chair.
Single Motor Chairs
These chairs have only the one motor to drive the different moving parts, therefore no single part can move independently. Each part of the chair alters its position at the same time and in a redetermined fashion: as the leg rest rises, the angle of both the seat and the back also alter until the chair reaches its maximum adjustment or you release the button to stop all movement.
Dual Motor Chairs
The two motors of these chairs enable the seat back and the footrest to be positioned independently, allowing you to find the position that best suits you and then make further adjustments if you so need.
Tilt In-Space Chairs – Single and Dual Motor
These chairs are able to maintain the angle between the back and the seat ensuring that as you recline your body is not ‘stretched’ uncomfortably. They also enable you, should you so wish, to raise your feet above the level of your heart which is often a requirement for certain medical condition e.g. poor circulation or oedema.
