Are you looking for a comfortable lift chair? This blog post will explain the factors to consider when buying a lift chair and lead you to a chair that will last longer and retain comfortability.
What are the Best Lift Chair Brands?
Before familiarizing yourself with the specifications and features of the best lift chairs, it’s essential to research the best manufacturers in the market. Though you can get cheap medical recliners at online stores like Amazon, they might lack warranty support. Therefore, you need manufacturers that do not compromise on quality and have warranty support.
Pride Mobility and Golden Technologies are the leading producers of lift chairs. These two brands produce reliable and high-quality products. With more than 40 lift chair models, these brands make it easy for you to choose your best lift chair. Additionally, most chairs have custom options that allow you to select the size, fabric, color, et cetera, that best suits you.
Between the two mentioned brands, our best pick is Pride Mobility. Here’s why:
- Most reliable brand: At Pride Mobility, whenever you face a problem with your lift chair or need replacement parts, they will be there for you. Though it is rare for their products to require a replacement part, you will get the replacement very fast if need be. What’s more exciting is if the product’s warranty hasn’t expired yet, Pride Mobility will pay for the replacement service.
- Best Warranty: Besides having a warranty on all the products, Pride Mobility offers you a free in-home repair for 12 months! The service works hand-in-hand with the warranty.
- Shipping: Enjoy free shipping on all Pride Mobility lift chairs.
- Best Value: You will enjoy high-quality products with no sales tax, in most states, thus saving more!
Though Pride Mobility tops the list, Golden Technologies has also stood the test of time and has a reputation for producing great recliners as well. The brand also offers in-home repair services, an excellent warranty, free shipping and no sales tax in most states.
Now that we’ve told you about the best brands, now let’s talk about the features and specifications.
Choosing the Best Lift Chair: Adjustability
If you will be sleeping on your lift chair, it is vital to ensure that it can be adjusted to completely flat position. When you start shopping, consider the following:
- Zero-Gravity lift chairs; and
- Infinite Position lift chairs
These two types adjust into a completely flat position.
Next, we recommend a lift chair that allows you to independently control the bottom and top parts of the chair. This is important because you will be able to customize the position of your legs and back, instead of being restricted to just one position.
Lastly, purchase a chair that has support for the head and the lumbar. If the chair has an adjustable headrest, you can set it in a comfortable position to avoid neck stiffness and improve the quality of your sleep.
Another critical factor to consider is the size of the chair. Pride Mobility and Golden Technologies have chairs with different sizes, heights and widths.
In order to determine what size chair is suitable for you, pay attention to the following:
- Distance between armrests
- Depth of the chair
- Height of the seatback
- The height from the seat to the ground (leg rest)
To view all these specifications and more, go to the specifications tab under the product photo on the product page.
Types of Fabric
You also need to consider what material the wheelchair is made of. Here are some of the most popular options:
- Leather: Though it’s a premium choice for most users, it may not be as comfortable for sleeping as it may make you sweat.
- Cotton/microsuede: These fabrics preserve warmth.
- Cloud 9 Fabric: Pride Mobility offers super soft Cloud 9 fabric which is 100% organic fabric and considered to be among the best fabric options.
