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.
Here are the basic three types of recliner available in the market. They are basically categorized according to the number of positions they can recline to: 1. Recliner chair with two positions: These types of recliner chairs reline only to a 45 degree angle and back to its normal position. It is very good and useful when relaxing or reading, but becomes uncomfortable if you want to sleep or think on it. Recliner with two position reclines are the cheapest, because they do not have as much mechanism built in them like the higher models. 2. Recliner chair with three positions: Three position recliner can be reclined and inclined back in three different positions. They are much more comfortable than their two position reclining counter-parts. Hence you can go for them with a normal budget. 3. Recliner chair with infinite positions: In this type of reclining chair you can recline or inline the back and footrest of the chair at any position and angle you desire. This is achieved by a two motor system which allows the back to recline and stay at any position you want. Unlike its two and three position recliner counter-parts, the footrest in the infinite position reclining chairs can be adjusted separately, thus giving you the best and most comfortable experience on the reclining chair. You can use this type of chair for all purposes, including sleeping, relaxing, reading, thinking and much more.
Depending on a users needs, power recliners come in many variations. The first type is the two position chair. Depending on the manufacture, most two position recliners are the lower costing entry point into the market. Costing less than three position and infinite position recliners, the goal is to provide the necessary requirements to lift a person in and out of a chair at the lowest price possible. They typically recline to a 45 degree position suitable for watching TV. Sleeping in a two position power recliner may be difficult for a person if they require a more flat sleeping surface.
