How do they work?
Electric lift and recline chairs, also known simply as “lift chairs” or “rise and recline chairs” are designed to assist users when rising from a seated position. They are simple to use and are operated by a handset. The handset is attached to the chair, so that it can't be mislaid, the lift recliner chair has a pocket or for the handset.

This provides both a stable position to transfer from and greatly assists those with poor shoulder, arm or hand strength, instability or weak leg function.  These chairs also offer an electric recline mechanism, including footboard raise, to provide exceptional comfort and promote circulation.
Electric lift chairs help the user to get in and out of the armchair easily.

Lie back
Some recliners let you lie back with your legs out straight. Some recliners go completely flat so you can sleep on them. Many professionals say it's not a good idea to sleep in your chair for long periods, but there are specially designed chair-beds for just this purpose.

Tilt in space
This is the really important action if you need the recliner to relieve pressure and soreness. The whole chair tips back - back rest, seat, leg rest and all. This means that the back rest still supports your lower back and that your weight is spread evenly through your whole seat and back
