All about Our Riser Recliners

If you need a little extra help when rising from a chair, then the electrically operated Riser Recliner chairs could really transform your life. Whether you choose a single or dual motor action, the mechanism operates quietly and efficiently to help you to your feet with ease. The correct support is important too, so our designs feature lumbar support in the backrest, while the top quality fabrics and padding make sure you sit or relax in style and comfort.

  1. Do you suffer from any ailments that affect your comfort when getting in, sitting in or rising out of a chair?
  2. Do you need to be able to sleep in your chair occasionally?
  3. Do you need a little extra help when rising out of a chair?
  4. Do you want to be able to control the chair backrest and footrest independently?

Helping you stay independent

We make a range of electrically operated riser recliners to suit all budgets and mobility. It is important that you choose the right one, as it can make all the difference to your everyday life. When you visit a store, our Occupational Therapist trained Comfort Specialists will offer you our 7-Point Seating Assessment™ so as to make sure we can find the exact right chair for you and your needs.

Riser Recliner Armchairs

With just a push of the button on its remote control, your chair reclines into a relaxing position. When you are ready to stand, the chair will gently lift and tilt to help you to your feet. There is no physical effort required at all, making them perfect for those who may need help when rising from a chair.

Wall-hugger technology

Wall-hugger technology allows your Riser Recliner Armchair to be positioned within a few inches of a wall, this is because the back reclines away from it and not into it (like a normal recliner).

Tilt-in-Space features

  • Offers more spinal support and comfort compared to a standard recliner
  • Nil sheer factor on the back when reclining
  • The chair base moves in harmony with the back (fixed back and seat angle)
  • The additional base function ensures the user sits correctly in the chair, giving better spinal support and posture
  • Greater leg elevation than a standard recliner
  • Ideal for users suffering from poor leg circulation, oedema and similar conditions

Please remember, that whilst the recliners will recline so that you can sleep in them, they are not designed to be used as a permanent bed.

Single or Dual Motor Action

A single motor controls the backrest and footrest at the same time, so when you recline the backrest, the footrest automatically rises to support your legs. A dual motor controls the backrest and footrest independently, so you can choose to recline the backrest and raise the footrest, or stay in a sitting position and raise the footrest only.
