Rise and Recliner Chairs Explained

About Dual Motor Recliner Chairs

Just what does that technical expression mean?

Choosing from our range of dual motor recliners gives you all the benefits that come from independently adjustable backrest and footrest actions. This means that you can set up the chair just to your unique favourite position, using the remote control to adjust the two parts of the chair separately to each other - which is not available on single motor chairs or other recliners. Some of the models also have a memory function so that you can pre-set a favourite, and also massage options for the ultimate type of chair for a feel-good factor.

Often these chairs are bought for their facility to sit reclined when watching television or listening to the radio. With your feet and legs elevated up, it can also help alleviate some of the pressures of living with medical conditions like oedema, vascular complaints, gout or cellulitis. Our best selling range of chairs also has a reset button to take you back to the standard seating position, which is handy for when there is a knock at the door or the phone rings.

These chairs are surprisingly easy to use. Moving from a standard fixed fireside or lounge arm chair to an electric riser chair is relatively simple. The only difference is that now you have a remote for your chair as well as the television! A simple toggle switch up or down will make the footrest rise up, then as the legs are gently lifted off the floor and are elevated in front, the backrest will slowly ease back too. To stand up, the switch is pressed the other way and the backrest comes back to a more upright position, the footrest safely lowers down, allowing the feet to touch ground. Keep pressing the button and the seat of the chair will rise up underneath you, securely lifting you to a safe standing position. The remote control can be tucked away in a pocket in the side of the chair, so no-one need know you might need a bit of help getting in and out of a chair.
