What is the Difference Between a Recliner and a Lift Chair?

lift chair, reclining lift chair, recliner

A lift chair is often confused with a recliner. While both types of chairs can recline your position back and lift your feet using a footrest, only a lift chair can move you from a sitting position to a vertical position, enabling you to get out of the chair easily.

A recliner is also operated manually while a lift chair is controlled by pushing a button on a remote control. It is a smooth and steady motion, ensuring safety and stability when lifting and lowering.

If you have difficulty getting up from a seated position or difficulty lowering into a seat, a lift chair is a terrific mobility aid to safely and comfortably assist you in everyday living.
