Lift Chairs may also be known as rise-and-recline chairs, power lift recliners, electric lift chairs or medical recline chairs. They come in a variety of sizes and styles are available in small to large widths. For carers, an electric lift chair can make caring for your loved one easier. Back injuries associated with lifting someone are common with carers. However, a lift chair can help to prevent injury by assisting with the transfer of the user from one position to another.
