Why "allowable"? Well throughout history chairs have reflected the status of the person sitting on them. The size, decoration and sheer ornateness of the chair saying a lot about the person sitting in it. Indeed in classical times to the time of the pharaohs, the chair was reserved for the high and mighty, only kings, lords and bishops were allowed chairs at all, the rest of the populace had to do with sitting on chests, benches or stools.
Lift chairs are a source of independence for people who have trouble rising from a sitting position. The chairs are motorized, and they rise slowly and tip forward slightly to allow the person to go from sitting to standing without having to lift their body weight. They are very useful in private homes, and in nursing homes to help the elderly or disabled have a degree of independence and to keep nursing assistants free to tackle more demanding tasks.
The chair however goes far further back than Latin however, the Egyptians having created some highly ornamental chairs for their pharaohs, while the Ancient Greeks way back in 1400BC were building chairs with four sturdy wooden legs, their design, the klismos being adopted by the Romans who introduced it in all the territories they conquered.
