Winter climate changes greatly throughout the eight states and territories of Australia. Generally, the winter season starts from May to August with June to August being the coldest. However, as per the “Guardian”, this year some areas in the highlands of Australia have been covered with 30cm of snow weeks ahead of the ski season and some parts of the country’s south-east were hit by a cold snap, resulting in the earlier than usual snow blanket.

This is the time to be comfortable and staying safe and it is the ideal time to use a lift chair. With the advancement of age, the chances of being struck with various medical conditions could result in disrupting the daily activities and the simple activity of getting up and down from a seating position becomes a challenge. Lift chairs are one of the devices manufactured to assist to a standing position and thereafter carry on independently.

Difference between Single Motor and Twin Motor

A single motor lift chair is controlled by one motor which controls all the electric functions of the chair, controlling the backrest, footrest and rising functions operated with a single set of switches. The single motor-operated lift chairs are less expensive to purchase due to its simple controls being less costly to fabricate.

The Twin motor is operated with a twin motor which separately controls some functions of the chair. One motor operates the backrest and controls the footrest and riser function. Accordingly, each motor has a separate set of buttons to operate. The flexibleness of the twin-motor lift chairs has made it a more popular selection with elderly and disabled users.
