Here are a few quick facts to ask about and know when shopping
Lift Chairs are also recliners. Many people do not know that.
Lift chairs can have independent controls that adjust and control the feet alone, as well as the back alone. This gives you exact comfort to the issues that you need.
Many have adjustable headrest as well to give your neck comfort as you sit or sleep.
Many have programable buttons to set for your liking. So if you have a favorite sit position with the neck just so and the legs so high, it is easy to get back to that position again.
Higher leg lift position in Zero Gravity position allow for best circulation in legs. Allows for lower back pain causes to be released as well.
Lift direction can be adjusted on most styles so the chair can lean forward as it lifts or instead lift directly up (not leaning) creating a nonslip environment depending on leg strength, leg height or fabric/ leather chosen on lift chair. Some fabrics or leathers could be more slick than others, and changing the lift position to a lift seat vs tilt would help the individual stay in their seat vs slipping out as the chair raises.
