What Is A Lift Chair?

A lift chair is a piece of durable medical equipment that looks similar to a home recliner. The key function that makes the chair a medical device is the lift mechanism that will lift the chair into a standing position, helping the user easily transfer in and out of the chair itself. Lift Chairs come in several different styles, that carry different features along with them. The different types include:

  • 2-Position Lift Chair: The 2-Position lift chair is a basic lift chair option that will feature the standing function of the chair as well as a slight back recline and leg elevation. 2-Position Lift Chairs are not able to go fully flat for a sleeping position and do not allow for seperate adjustment of the back and legs of the chair. When the user presses the recline button the back and foot section of the chair must move together in one motion. Due to this drawback many people look for 3-Position or Infinite positions lift chairs for better positioning and comfort.
  • 3-Position Lift Chair: The 3-Position Lift Chair is very similar in functionality to the 2 position lift chair, except it is able to recline further into a napping position. The 3-Position Lift Chair will not go flat into a full sleeping position, for users in need of multiple positions and the ability the option would be an Infinite Position Lift Chair
  • Infinite Position Lift Chair: The Infinite Position Lift Chair is capable of moving the back independently from the foot section of the bed. This is possible because they use 2 separate motors (1 for the back & 1 for the foot) to operate and perform the infinite number of positions the lift chair has. Of these positions users will be able to full recline into a sleeping position.
  • Zero-Gravity Lift Chair: The Zero-Gravity Lift Chair is an infinite position lift chair that is able to go into the Zero-Gravity Position. The Zero-Gravity Lift Chair allows for the legs and head to be raised at just the right angle to reduce back pressure and increase circulation. This position boosts better health and sleep by encouraging the body's natural capability to relax as gravity is evenly distributed through the body.
