     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.
