Is it getting harder to help mom out of her chair? Does dad have a hip or knee surgery scheduled? If so, they could benefit from a lift chair. This piece of furniture contains a device that lifts the entire chair from its base, allowing the sitter to get in and out with ease.

Before you start shopping, here is a quick guide to some of the different types of lift chairs, courtesy of CarePro Home Medical:

Three Position Chair: The three-position chair can recline out to a 135-degree angle, so it makes a V-shape when it’s fully extended. This model of chair is great for those on a budget, as they tend to be the least expensive. However, they’re still comfy and reliable and can enable mom and dad to live more independently.

Infinite Position Lift Chair: If mom or dad enjoy taking afternoon recliner naps, then an infinite position lift chair would be a great option. This lift chair can fully recline at 180-degrees, allowing the sitter to go into a laying-down position. Typically, the infinite position lift chair comes with two motors, one for the back and one for the feet, which allows for a wide variety of positions.

Zero Gravity Lift Chairs: The zero gravity lift chair comes with the most options. Like the infinite position lift chair, it also typically comes with a motor at the back and one at the front. The zero gravity lift chair allows the sitter to elevate their legs above their heart, so it’s ideal for those with heart issues. If you’re looking for something top-of-the-line, this is it.

Stepping into the role of family caretaker is never easy. But, with a lift chair from CarePro Home Medical, we can make it just a little easier. Check out the lift chair selection at any of our CarePro Medical locations.
