Rising and Reclining Chairs
What is a Riser Recliner?
Riser-recliner chairs help present you to a standing position at the touch of a button. Most of them will also raise your feet and enable you to recline to a more relaxed back angle but there are of course many different types of riser-recliner, each with its own specific advantages. For example, a single-motored wallhugger needs very little space to recline in whereas a dual-motored version enables you to operate the back rest entirely independently from the footrest and can recline almost to horizontal. A tilt-in-space chair can raise your feet higher than your hips. Some chairs can have built-in pressure relief.
