Repose Furniture Limited


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.

Single Motor - Tilt in Space

The key features of our Tilt in Space rise and recline mechanism:

  • The single motor mechanism means that the back reclines at the same time as the leg rest elevates. The Tilt in Space movement ensures that a constant back angle of 90º is maintained at all times as the chair reclines.
  • 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 reclined position the leg rest rises 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 this mechanism.
  • The easy to use handset features only two buttons.

Available in the following weight categories: Up to 20 stones (127kg) in the low profile model; Up to 25 stones (158kg) on our standard height 18” or 20”.

VAL technology is available with this mechanism. VAL stands for Variable Angle Lift. This means you can set the angle that you would like the chair to tilt you forward to for example 10º, 20º or 30º.

The key features of our Wall Hugger rise and recline mechanism:

  • A single motor drives the mechanism.
  • The leg rest can be brought up to a semi recline position or full horizontal position.
