Lift chairs are available with two, three, or infinite positioning options. The fewer the positioning options, the less expensive the chair. If a person has no need for a chair that fully reclines or doesn't plan to sleep in the chair, then a two or three position chair will save money over an infinite position chair. The chairs with an infinite number of positions from which it can rise are the most expensive, usually starting at around $1,000.00. But their flexibility is for many people more than just a luxury. Many of these chairs can be positioned with the feet elevated above heart level, which is helpful to some medical conditions.
Another factor that makes these chairs a good choice is the fact that they are easier to move around without being an encumbrance. For example, in an office setting, it is easier to push in and pull out armless chairs from the office table than it is to do so with a chair fitted with arms. A final point that should be mentioned is the affordability of these chairs relative to chairs fitted with arms of the same caliber; such upholstered chairs are definitely more affordable in this regard.
These size designations have more to do with the chair user's height than weight. However, if a shorter chair user requires a wider seat or extra lifting capacity, wide chairs come in their own versions of Small, Medium, and Large, etc. That way someone who is short, but who weighs a lot will have a chair that fits more comfortably than a traditional sized lift chair made for someone much taller.
