In the market for an electric lift chair? These chairs are great for those who need a little help getting in and out of a seated position. The convenience of electric lift chairs makes them great for the elderly or those recovering from surgery, especially when they need to be stationary. Most of these lift chair models come with reclining features apart from the seated and lifted positions. These affordable and comfortable electric lift chairs also make for the perfect gift for a special person in your life!

Electric Lift Chairs Motor Options

One of the most important features of an electric lift chair would be the type of motor it has. The motor essentially allows the user to control the lift feature. The type of motor you have also affects performance. Let’s break them down for you.

Single Motor Electric Lift Chairs

The single motor functions in a particular way. When using your single motor full recline electric lift chair the following order should be followed once seated.

  1. Lift chair will allow you to raise the footrest, then recline the backrest
  2. When you need to sit back up from reclining, first it will bring the backrest up, then the footrest will be packed away
  3. When you need to stand up, then you can press the respective button to lift the chair up into a standing position

Dual Motor Electric Lift Chairs

By having two motors, the order of how you do these things does not matter as much as a single motor. It will allow you to move the likes of the backrest and the footrest independently without having to do it in a particular order.

Electric Lift Chair Positions
