For information on how Lift Chairs work see lift chair description.
Lift Chairs are the perfect solution for people needing help getting up from an ordinary chair, or have difficulty bending to sit down. A Lift Chair will lift the user all the way to a standing position or stopped anywhere during the lifting process. These recliners do all the work without hand-levers. All positions are controlled with a hand pendant.
