Rise and Recline Options

The most important aspect to consider before purchasing a riser recliner chair is to consider what seating positions you would like. Think about what would help you with your mobility needs and how you would like to position the chair to help you relax.

Each mechanism we offer is available in different sizes. A guide on the weight limits is given in the description of the different mechanisms, but please make sure that you check the weight limit before making your final decision.

Please watch the film clips at the bottom of this page for a demonstration of the movement.

Dual Motor Tilt in Space

 

The key features of our Dual Motor Tilt in Space Rise and Recline mechanism:

  • This mechanism offers the greatest flexibility in terms of the back and leg rest positions.
  • The dual motor mechanism allows the leg rest and back to work independently.
  • The Tilt in Space also allows the back and leg rest to work together, in one movement, ensuring that a constant back angle of 90º is maintained at all times.
  • With the Tilt in Space as the seat tilts backwards into its reclining position the pressure will transfer from the lower knee, to the upper thigh and then to the lower back.
  • When the seat is in the rise position it tilts transferring your weight to your knees taking away the pressure from your hips and allowing you to walk away easily from the chair.
  • In the reclining position the leg rest elevates to a high position to aid circulation.
  • Popular with Occupational Therapists the Tilt in Space movement offers greater posture management.
  • There is no ‘back shearing' (clothes movement) experienced with the Tilt in Space movement.
  • Easy to use handset with four buttons.
