What You Need To Know Before Purchasing The Perfect Lift Chair


Becoming immobile and losing strength is a natural aging process and normal daily chores that were simple in the past become difficult to cope. Simple tasks such as sitting down and standing up will not be that easy especially when your legs are not as strong as they used to be. To overcome these issues and assist the elderly to get back their independence, lift chairs are the best alternative.

A lift chair is an up to date equipment manufactured to improve a person’s life and increase mobility. Although there is a wide range of lift chairs available in the market, the user should be aware that the final decision of selecting and purchasing the device is the sole responsibility of the user with assistance from a health care professional such as a doctor or physical therapist.
It is important to read the manual and follow instructions mentioned before trying to use the lift chair for the first time. In some instances, as per the medical conditions, it will become necessary to practice operating the lift chair in the presence of a family member or health care professional who has been trained in assisting the user to perform the day to day activities whilst operating the lift chair safely.

Cellular phones, walkie-talkie, radio/TV stations, wireless computer links, microwave signals, and paging transmitters are some equipment that can cause damage to the control system of devices that are electrically powered. It is recommended to maintain a minimum distance of at least 3 meters between the lift chair and any handheld device that emits 10W or more power.

The riser action will help reduce the stress which would normally occur on your joints and knees when you get up and down. A battery backup also ensures you are able to retain mobility in the event of a power outage.

Shipping and Delivery

It is recommended to ensure the delivery is fully intact before using the lift chair as some parts may be packed separately. If the delivery is not according to the specifications mentioned on the purchase, the dealer should be contacted immediately. In case the packaging or contents have been damaged during transportation, the delivery company in charge should be contacted.

Transporting by motor vehicle

When a lift chair is being transported in a motor vehicle, special care should be taken to ensure the individual parts are kept safe without slipping. The lift chair should also be secured from slipping and being damaged probably when the vehicle brakes due to a mishap.



Most often when a person gets older, the muscles get stiffened or joints begin to ache and it becomes difficult to get about your normal daily activities. Even a least possible chore will be too much for the body to take and at times the person may even lose mobility absolutely due to the immense pain. When this happens, it becomes necessary to look for ways to lessen stress on the body and limit activity. The best device to arrest this situation is the lift and recliner chair. This chair is equipped with mechanisms that lift it up and down enabling the user to sit down and get up easily


This recliner chair is operated electrically which lifts the chair up and tilts it forward controlled with a hand lever on the armrest. On some chairs, it also controls the reclining position of the chair. Some older models have a spring mechanism which is not recommended as sometimes the user could get thrown out of the chair. The electrically operated chair raises slowly, enabling the user to get on the feet safely.


Chair Extent

The size of the chair should be taken into consideration as it is a device that shifts user from sitting to a standing position. The chair’s best performance is based on the user’s height and weight. Checking the height of the chair is very important because if the chair is too tall, it could lift the user off the ground leading to a fall. Therefore, considering the size of the chair should be given prime importance.


Room and Décor

Considering the room where the lift chair is being placed is also important. Although these chairs are the same size as recliners, they take more space when activated. It should also blend with the room décor and many models have a choice of fabric and possibly be able to match the chair to the existing walls and furnishing.

These positions have different types of reclining features to suit the user’s need.
