Whether it’s for health reasons or simply relaxation, a recliner chair can offer unparalleled comfort and support when sitting. The three main types of Recliner Chair: Manual Recliners, Powered Recliners and Electric 'Lift & Rise' Recliners. Recliners come in a range of finishes, from luxury upholstery fabrics to genuine leather and faux leather models. Recliners are also available in a range of sizes from petite and small models, through to standard and large chairs.
Manual recliners are one of the most popular types of reclining chairs. Allowing a number of recline positions to be reached with only the slightest of body weight movements, these models have no cabling so can be positioned anywhere in your home and usually come with a handle or catch release.
Powered recliners generally come with a handset or a two-button switch conveniently fitted to the outside arm to allow you to reach your desired recline position. Generally receiving their power from an electrical outlet, some powered recliners come with the option of a rechargeable battery pack to accommodate power outages.
Lift & Rise Recliners, or Electric Recliners as they're commonly known, are designed with Full Powerlift Facility to assist sufferers of arthritis, rheumatism, MS, poor circulation and many other mobility restrictions. Many designs offer the choice of dual motor enabling you to control the backrest and footrest independently or single motor mechanisms which allows you to return it to the sitting position.
