Buying a Lift Chair? 3 Important Things to Consider, La Crosse, Wisconsin

Do you have a loved one with limited mobility? A lift chair makes sitting, lying down, and moving around easier. Designed like a standard reclining chair, lift chairs are equipped with electric power to move the chair up and down in a variety of positions.

The Hilton Medical Supply team provides the highest-quality home medical equipment to La Crosse, WI, residents. If you’re interested in a comfortable chair that inclines and reclines in an instant, read their guide below to ensure you purchase the right one.

Top 3 Lift Chair Considerations 

1. Size 

Like regular recliners, power lift chairs are available in a variety of sizes. Search for a chair that provides enough space for your loved one to comfortably sit, sleep, and stretch their feet and legs. To ensure the chair is the right size for the patient’s needs, give your medical supply store their current weight and height, and they will provide a host of traditional and luxury options. 

2. Positioning 

lift chairMost lift chairs come in “two position,” “three position,” and “infinite position” or “multiple position” models. “Two position” means the chair can recline at a 45-degree angle, while “three position” allows the chair to recline at a 90-degree angle. “Infinite position” chairs have two powerful motors and allow for the smoothest experience, since the bottom footrest portion of the chair is often independent of the back part.

3. Features 

Modern lift chairs come with a host of amenities, from cup and TV remote holders to heated seats and plush, colorful fabrics. Whatever the patient’s needs may be, your medical supply store can guide you toward the chair that makes them feel most comfortable.
