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.
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 first plus is the bulk; such chairs are not as bulky or space-consuming as chairs with arms. This factor makes them the ideal choice especially in places where space comes at a premium. Such apartments or office spaces will benefit better from armless upholstered chairs than from normal padded chairs with arms. Another advantage is the simplicity these chairs represent. There is a unique simplistic elegance that is displayed by an armless padded chair. This is especially evident in swivel office chairs.
