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.
A recliner, as the word denotes, is a type of chair that leans back or reclines into a comfortable lounging position with the feet elevated and the head lying down. It was first introduced to the market by a company called La-Z-Boy in 1928. The recliners design is based on the natural contour of the body when seated and leaned back. The ottoman was added to the recliner as footstool during the 1950s and became its symbol. The first recliner became very famous that other furniture makers jumbled to ride on its popularity and offered their own versions of this innovative furniture. Recliners are really comfortable and relaxing chairs. They are mostly made from upholstery, leather, vinyl or naugahyde, an artificial leather.
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.
When you test out a used lazy boy recliner you may find the reclining mechanism too stiff or too loose. This is something that might be very easily adjusted even though it might have an impact on the price that the seller is asking. If you can, you may want to try adjusting the tension to see if this is a simple fix or something more seriously wrong with the reclining mechanism. Several companies sell slipcovers for Lazy Boy recliners and small problems with the upholstery may be easily fixed by purchasing a new slipcover. If the recliner you are considering purchasing already has a slipcover, be sure to remove it to see if the original upholstery is in good condition. Check with your local re-upholsterers to see if they can reupholster your recliner at a reasonable price. A used lazy boy recliner with a good frame and reclining mechanism may still be a bargain if you can get it reupholstered.
