     Infinite position recliners give you the most freedom that you could want from a chair. Not only are they great for reclining, but they can also be as flat as a bed. Infinite position reclinershave a dual motor that adjusts the angle of your footrest and backrest through the hand controller, and also come with an integrated battery backup and a heavy-duty steel lift mechanism. This can helpeasily sit down or stand up at the touch of the button, making it perfect for anyone having difficulty doing so by themselves. Some of these chairs even offer back massage and heat options!

  1. Zero-Gravity Lift Chairs (click to see all Zero Gravity Chairs)

     These chairs are able to achieve the same positions as an Infinite Position chair plus the Zero-Gravity position.  The Zero-Gravity position is the most stress-free body position because weight distribution is equal throughout the body, alleviating pressure on the joints, neck, and back. The zero-gravity position was found by NASA to help astronauts endure the sudden and intense increases in gravity during takeoff. 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.

 Positions: Infinite Positions including Zero Gravity and Trendelenburg Positions.

 

  1. Trendelenburg Position Lift Chairs (click to see all Trendelenburg Chairs)

     Trendelenburg Capable position recliners do many positions besides just the trendelenburg postions.  These chairs come with some additional features that many of the other chairs are unable to provide.

TheTrendelenburg position is where your feet are elevated above your heart, and your heart is elevated above your head when sitting down. These chairs are specially designed for people suffering from congestive heart failure, hypotension, blood circulation disorders, neuropathy, diabetes, oedema, and swelling.They also come with two separate motors so that you can control the footrest and backrest independently.

Conclusion:

Powered Lift chairs come with many benefits to help users maintain their independence and support their mobility. All of these recliners are fully designed to provide you with maximum comfort and relaxation. With a wide variety of options suitable for any budget, you’re definitely going to find the chairs that works the best for you.
