Electric lift chairs are the perfect solution for elderly people who need a little extra lift to help them get in and out of their favourite chair. These chairs work by using a mechanical frame that lifts the chair up while tilting it forward to help the user get in and out. If movement is restricted and a wheelchair or walkers and canes are needed, an electric lift chair can provide some freedom and autonomy in the lounge room.
What type of chair?
Electric lift chairs come in four different types or positions which include two-position, three-position, infinite-position, and zero-gravity. Each of these positions offers different features to the user and may be suitable for different people.
This type of electric lift chair is not technically a recliner as it can only move about 45 degrees and keeps the sitter upright.
This chair has more movement than the two-position chair and is perfect for those who like to have an afternoon nap in the lounge room as it includes a napping position. However, it's important to note that three-position chairs do not recline fully flat.
The infinite position chair allows for comfortable sleeping and sitting, this chair has a range of movement from upright to complete flat.
These chairs are designed for people who have back pain or problems with muscles. This chair reclines even further than the infinite position chair, to the point where the legs are above the head.
Some lift chairs come with additional therapeutic features. Some lift chairs feature a heating element that will warm up your chair for extra comfort. Lift chairs can also come with an inbuilt massage feature which can help to relieve the tension in your body and relax muscles.
