The second variable when choosing a lift recliner is the seat dimensions. People have different sizes and shaped gluteus maximuss. Yes, that is correct, making sure the lift recliner fits the length and width of a persons tush is required to ensure one feels comfortable while sitting in their lift recliner. One can measure the width of their tush by sitting down and measuring from hip to hip. Measure in a few areas and choose the larger number for best comfort. Record this number and have it ready when researching potential lift recliners. The last factor in choosing the best lift recliner is the weight of the person that will be using the electric recliner. It is very important to select a lift recliner chair that has the ability to lift the person under the recommend weight. Most manufactures will document the maximum weight capacity to help determine the best recliner lift chair. So have the users weight ready when sizing the proper lift recliner.
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.
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.
A variety of upholstery options include leather, micro suede, and other traditional fabrics. Many of these fabrics are selected for long-term use, beauty and durability. These fabrics have also been refined to where many are very plush and comfortable to the touch. Manual control levers are now being replaced with powered recline systems. A powered recline is a great way to go to find the exact position comfortable for you. These powered systems usually include the chair back and the leg rest. The recline function of these chairs has been automated with motorized controls. Recliner is may use one or two motors depending on their design. In most cases the recline function for the chair back and the leg rest can be controlled easily.
In the late eighteen hundreds, a number of designs emerged for motion chairs. Typically made of wood, with a padded seat and back, these early recliners may have been more conversation piece than a furniture staple like a chair or sofa. Designs from France and America often featured what was referred to as document or a book holder. Two American cousins, Knabush and Shoemaker, are credited with gaining the patent on a wooden recliner. There was nothing remarkable about the design as it resembled a wooden beach recliner. The difference between this and other recliners was the patent. Issued in nineteen twenty eight, the patent led to the founding of LayZBoy. It would not be until nineteen thirty one that the cousins would patent an upholstered model with a mechanical movement. It would not be until nineteen forty seven that a competing company would add a built in foot rest. The addition of a foot rest would become a standard part of recliner design.
