How Do Riser Recliner Chairs Work?

Riser recliner chairs (also known as rise and reclining chairs or electric recliner chairs) work by a rising and reclining action inside the chair which helps you to sit down and stand up with ease.

At The Recliner Factory, all of our riser recliners come equipped with a simple hand held control. This allows you to adjust your chair to a position that suits you best, from reclining to fully risen.

Most importantly, our lift and recline action is one of the best available. Some cheaper models often have a scissor action which means they have one weight-load point, making the recliner less stable. Our riser recliners spread weight evenly across a platform, ensuring optimum stability and maximising your comfort.

Riser recliners offer many advantages to standard chairs. The rising action allows you to raise your feet safely and easily, without putting too much pressure on your joints. The reclining action allows you to get into the optimum position of comfort. This can help alleviate the pain from certain medical problems, especially if you are sat down for long periods of time, as you can easily adjust your position.
