Power lift recliner chairs are excellent for those who could use a hand getting into and out of chairs, such as people with hip and knee problems.
With a power lift recliner, one simply needs to use the chair’s controller to raise and tilt the chair to a position that is easy for the user to sit down or get up.
Most power lift recliner chairs also feature the ability to power recline while sitting in the chair, however some models do not have this feature. Just be sure to double check for that if a power reclining mechanism is important to you.
In the table below you’ll find a comparison table of some of the most popular power lift recliners, analyzed by rating, price, and weight capacity. Read on below the table for more detail on some of our favorite chairs from the chart.
