Finding the Perfect Lift Chair for You!

finding the perfect lift chair

If you or a loved one are in need of added mobility and comfort at home, electric recliner lift chairs can be a lifesaver. These versatile pieces of furniture are designed to assist individuals with limited mobility in safely and comfortably transitioning from a seated to a standing position and vice versa. That said, lift chairs aren’t just for those who need assistance when standing; a large portion of lift chair customers are people who simply want to increase their all-around comfort and quality of life. In fact, 50% of lift chair users can stand up and sit down just fine – but have arthritic knees, hips, or other joint problems that can cause pain.

With various lift chair options available, it’s crucial to know how to choose the right lift chair to meet your specific needs. There are a few key factors to consider when purchasing a lift chair, including fabric, height restriction, weight restriction, and features.

At APA Medical, we offer over 30 customizable lift chair options to choose from, so you’re sure to find the chair that best suits your relaxation and wellness needs.

Fabric Considerations

When it comes to performance, comfort, and style, Golden Technologies’ array of power lift chair recliners is unmatched in the industry. It’s no wonder that the fabric we use gives you the same high quality and range of choices to please every taste and need – including our exclusive Brisa and high-performance fabric with Alta technology, plus a full palette of plush fabrics and colors. 

  • Alta – perfect for heavy-duty or high-traffic seating, Alta ramps up performance with a total liquid barrier, antimicrobial protection, and high repellency to liquids and oil-based stains.
  • Brisa –  offers the refined look of leather but in a luxuriously soft, breathable, and temperate design. Brisa is the world’s first breathable polyurethane fabric.
  • Anli Urethane – is highly durable and provides the most realistic imitation of leather. The composite material and polyurethane coating make this fabric water-resistant, flexible, and lightweight.
  • Easy Living – has a modern, updated look to match any home décor. This fabric features our exclusive SofTouch with stain-defense coating. This proprietary system, while increasing stain resistance, adds a luxurious “soft to the touch” feel to the fabric.
  • Imagine –  beautiful, soft fabric features our exclusive SofTouch with stain defense coating. This proprietary system, while increasing stain resistance, adds a luxurious “soft to the touch” feel to the fabric.
  • Microsuede – a stylish alternative to suede with wonderful advantages. It has the soft hand of natural suede leather but none of its drawbacks. Long-lasting and stain-resistant, this faux suede fabric is perfect for furniture that will see a high volume of use or spills.
  • Porto – a luxuriously soft fabric with a subtle pattern to match your home décor. This fabric features our exclusive SofTouch with stain-defense coating.
  • Tucker – Engineered for extreme comfort and durability, this new fabric has a soft hand and tailors extremely well on our power lift recliners, bringing out the design of our chairs. Tucker fabric repels moisture, resists stains, and is easy to clean.
  • Sutton Faux Leather – a rich and modern alternative to natural leather that is extremely comfortable while offering the rugged durability of leather. Made from 100% polyester, the fabric is easy to care for, ensuring functionality as well as elegance.

All standard cloth fabrics include SoftTouch with stain defense material. Silicone was added to the manufacturing process of these fabrics, making the fabric stain and moisture-repellent.

Height and Weight Restrictions

Electric recliner lift chairs come with height and weight restrictions that are crucial to ensure the chair functions safely and effectively. It’s essential to select a chair that accommodates your height and weight comfortably. Most lift chairs are designed to handle a wide range of heights and weights, but it’s still essential to check the manufacturer’s specifications.
