By placing them in this position, the weight is redistributed equally throughout their body, allowing the stress of takeoff to be distributed safely through their bodies. These lift chairs have 2 motors, allowing you to control the backrest and footrest separately. Zero gravity lift chairs are good for people who will be spending a lot of time and/or sleeping in the chair.
