What we are more familiar with are recliners – you must be having one in your living room or at your bedside. However, there are some basic differences between lift chairs and recliners. A lift chair is primarily a piece of medical equipment that is also commercially known by the names – 3-position recliners or power-lift recliners.
A lift chair necessarily contains a few more features than the casual recliners that you have at home. Lift chairs are most suitable for patients as both their base and back can be inclined enough to let the user rest in a lying-down position. Also, they can be brought forward enough to help the person attain the upright (or standing) posture. Candidates with a lower-body injury or a recent cardiovascular surgery often require a lift chair.
