In the period around eighteen fifty, the French introduced a reclining camp bed one of which reportedly belonged Napoleon III. This camp cot was quite functional for its time serving multiple purposes. Thought to be modeled after the daybed lounge, the camp cot served as a chair, a bed and chaise lounger. Well upholstered for the times, the reclining camp bed was portable and featured padded arm rests and a steel frame. While the Napoleon camp cot lacked a complex mechanism it no less functional than todays recliner designs. The user could sit in an upright, recline with the feet elevated or the cot could be folded out for sleeping.
Though the cousins were not the first to develop a piece of reclining motion furniture, they were the first to create a branding strategy for their product. Many other furniture companies began to produce and sell recliners using very similar designs for mechanisms. It was not long before other companies sprang up to produce a variety of recliner mechanisms. From relatively simple designs to more complex motorized and power actuated models, todays recliners offer specialized solutions to user needs. Most recliners require the user to sit in the chair and actuate the mechanism by pushing backwards, lifting a lever or pulling on a cable. Power lift recliners have the ability to literally rise up to meet the user. The development of the power lift chair proved to be a boon to folks with limited mobility. Power recliners generally feature some type of remote control that allows the user to operate the chairs movements with the push of a button.
Such persons face multiple problems under this condition. Even when in some sitting position, they find it really difficult to change angles. The other is of course the movement issue. They contain a motor in them and are driven by it. So lift recliner can move from one place to another and can change the angles while sitting. The best recliner chairs are driven electrically as they have a battery which provider the backup in case of any power failure. There is a control panel on one side of the lift recliner that has buttons on it. Using these buttons you can move the recliner from one place to another, change angles while sitting on the recliner and using the lift system you can even change vertical heights.
This class of recliner comes in a variety of styles and features. The motorized versions usually come with a remote control panel. This enables you to activate and deactivate different features on the recliner. Many relaxation recliners come with air massage systems. Air compression massages used to inflate and deflate air bags. These airbags push and pull on the larger muscles of the body for relief of stiffness. Relaxation recliners are built to help you unwind. A variety of therapeutic features including full body heat, vibration massage and even a built in MP3 music player provide a complete relaxation environment.
The three most popular and commonly used types of recliners are the two-position recliner, the rocker or wall-saver, and the pushback or flex-back. The traditional two position recliner is the cheapest and most basic of all types of recliners. Some of its areas are upholstered with genuine leather like the arm, seat base and leg. One can be bought for less than a hundred dollars. Several parts such as the back are covered by vinyl, unlike others fully covered with leather. The usual warranty period for these recliners is just one year. There are also few styles to choose from. The rocker recliner is the most famous type of recliner and therefore most largely manufactured. It can be rocked back and forth while sitting upright or reclined. It has many different adjustable reclining angles. The wall-saver option allows you to place it very close to the wall to save space. It cannot be rocked while it is against the wall. It has a larger selection of fabrics and styles. The warranty is usually 5 years on frame and the unit has a lifetime guarantee. It is also more expensive than two position recliner.
