Power recliners are just another name for lift chair recliners. They are designed for those needing assistance getting in and out of the seated position. Power recliners are made to look like a typical mechanical recliner but use electric motors to recline the chair back and lift a person up to a standing position. All this is done with the click of a button. Regardless of the word or term used to define this medical device, the fact is they are perfect for people with back, knee, hip and/or joint problems; someone who just had surgery; or for people that just do not have the strength to work a manual recliner. This article focuses on explaining the difference between the three available power recliner positions, so that readers are better educated in the purchasing process.
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.
If three position power recliners lack flexibility, one can step up to the more versatile and expensive infinite position recliner. Gaining more bells and whistles, the primary difference is the number of motors. Two and three position lift chairs have one motor to do everything limiting flexibility and precise position selecting. An infinite position recliner has two motors, one to raise the foot section and another to recline and lift the recliner. An example why one would want an infinite position recliner over others types of lift chairs would be someone needing to operate the feet section independently of the back. This allows one to raise the feet leaving the chair seated in the upright position more suitable for eating and reading.
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.
