Rise and Recline Mechanisms

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 below for a demonstration of the movement.
