Many people with mobility limitations find it difficult to sit down or stand up without assistance. Users who want to sit for short periods of time to watch TV or to relax with a book are good candidates for a 2 position lift chair.
Like all types of lift chairs, the 2 position chair helps keep the user safe by leaning back against the raised seat and gently lowering it to a sitting position. The maximum angle these chairs tilt back is 45 degrees, which is perfect for most short term leisure activities. With a 2 position lift chair, the footrest and the back support move in coordination with each other. These work seamlessly using a handheld remote control device or with a manual hand lever, helping the user to sit and recline or rise to a full sitting position. Massage and heat options are available as extras.
