If you are suffering from health problems such as arthritis, asthma, circulation problems and back pain, or if you spend a lot of time in an armchair, or simply find it difficult to enter or exit your chair than a riser recliner chair may help.

An electric tilt chair can help the user get in to and out of the chair easily by rising and reclining to a seated or raised position, removing the need for the user to lower or raise themselves into and out of the chair. Most chairs have a remote control attached to the chair to enable the user to adjust to a suitable and comfortable position.

Rise and recline chairs are electrically operated and usually power by mains electricity. Some chairs come complete with battery backup so the chair can be operated during a power cut. There are two main types available, these being single motor or dual motor. The single motor chair will riser and lower the user and be able to adjust both the back and foot rest at the same time, whereas on the dual motor chairs the back and foot rests can be adjusted independently given greater seating positions and comfort.

The chairs can come with various additional features and top of the range adjustable chairs can come with heated and message seating.

There are many different types of rise and recline chairs, which offer different levels of support and comfort. Before buying consideration should be given to the level of comfort and support offered, the size of the user should also be taken into consideration. Riser recliner chairs are available in different sizes, as people are different sizes

As with most furniture riser recliner chairs are available in different colours and some models are available in different fabrics, including leather. Therefore it should be possible to find a suitable chair that will fit in with the existing décor and colour scheme in the room. Some model ranges are available with matching sofas or traditional style armchairs. You should also consider were the chair is to be positioned, ensuring it is close to a power source. Some electric lift chairs are available with additional pockets and storage compartments, and even trays which are stored in the arm rest.

In conclusion there are various different types and styles of riser chairs, therefore it is important to consider the users needs and the purpose of the chair, also consider your budget and shop around to ensure you get several quotes to ensure you are getting value for money.
