Electric Recliner Chairs with Helpful Lift Capability

Apparently as we age, we need help in just the simple things.  To have a comfortable chair to enjoy is a treat.  Many of us enjoy reclining in them as well.  So now on the scene are electric recliner chairs with helpful lift capability.

Why Electric Recliner Chairs?

Why electric?  Because if we want to recline, that usually means using some sort of lever to move the arms that lift the foot rest and recline the back rest.  And as we age, it is more and more difficult to push that handle.  

In addition, it is also a challenge to get up out of a chair.  So now manufacturers have included a lift device into their recliners.  

Furthermore, this review will only include three chairs that have the feature of infinite-position.  

This is a review of some of the top sellers.  I hope to provide important information to you so that you can decide which chair would be the best for your needs.

Quick Comparison

What Features Do You Want? 

  • Comfort; this seems to be a given, but the type of material used, the number of positions available and the padding are all variables to think about.
  • Cost; these chairs with recliner positions, lift options and other add on features can run anywhere from $1000 – $2,500+.  
  • Extras; do you want extras like massage and heat?
  • Is delivery included?  What about set up?  Because many of us elderly have trouble with that.
  • Are the controls easy to use?  Is the remote attached with a cord (which helps find the control!)
  • Number of positions; chairs vary from just 3 positions to infinite (or so they claim).
  • What height does it accommodate?  Tall people may not find one big enough!  If you are paying this much money, it seems to me you want comfort above all else. 
  • Cup holder; although not a comfort issue, some customers might find this to be a deal breaker if not available. 
  • Zero gravity feature; where you can lift your legs above your heart which helps with circulation and relieves back pain.
  • Check out the website to determine warranties and money back protection.
  • Safe and reliable. To get more information on safety at home, check out my article here, How To Age at Home.

All the following chairs have:

  • Zero Gravity feature
  • Emergency battery backup for when power failures occur

Three Brands to Consider

1 The Perfect Sleep Chair

Electric Recliner Chairs with Helpful Lift Capability
Perfect Sleep Chair

This chair has the best and most numerous options, which is why it costs more than the others.  It has an A+ rating with the BBB.  Like the other two brands I researched (listed below), it reclines and lifts.  

It claims to have infinite positions.  With infinite positions, the back and leg segments operate independently, so you can therefore vary the combinations.  This certainly makes for a more personalized chair.  

You can choose from leather like material or a durable polyester in various colors.  The amazing feature about this chair is you actually special order it to your specifications! They build the chair just for you!

Besides the features of reclining and lifting, this chair claims to be a wonderful “sleep” chair.  For those of us who have trouble finding a comfortable position in bed because of pain, this might be a great option.  

Will only accept returns on damage or defective chairs, since they make the chair to the consumer’s specifications. One thing I don’t like about this chair is they aren’t very upfront about the cost.  I have seen it listed for $1,899.00, which is higher than the other chairs.  

Check the link for maximum weight limits and measurements for if it can handle your height.  The website doesn’t show the weight limit so be sure to ask.  

2 Best Choice Products PU Leather Electric Power Lift Chair

Electric Recliner Chairs with Helpful Lift Capability

Best Choice PU Leather Electric Power Lift Chair

This product is sold through Amazon, and is rated with 4.5 stars and labeled as Amazon’s Choice. It is much cheaper than the Perfect Sleep Chair. It comes in eight colors.

Did you know that PU leather means it’s not real leather? PU stands for polyurethane. So be advised you aren’t getting real leather. This product is made here in the US with a few centers around the country. It ships from there, is eligible for returns, and advertises customer support.

It advertises three massage modes and two heat settings for the lumbar region. A remote control makes things easier for all adjustments. It comes with two cupholders on either side of the chair. There is a side pocket to hold books or magazines, and a USB port for charging your phone.

Of course it has the power lift feature and three settings positions. It claims to be anti-tipping because of the heavy duty base.

3 COMHOMA Power Lift Recliner Chair

Electric Recliner Chairs with Helpful Lift Capability

This chair has five stars on Amazon, one of the few that does. It seems very basic to me, and the cost shows that. It is the cheapest one I reviewed. It ships from the state of Washington, and the company seems to be an importer. So there is a strong possibility it is made overseas.

It is eligible for return and there is customer service available. It also has the PU leather.

It comes in three colors and has a side pocket. The pocket appears smaller than the other two chairs. The drawback on this chair is that there is some assembly, so an elderly person will need some younger folks to put it together. That’s probably how you save money.

There are five positions, and three heat locations. There are two remotes one for reclining and one for heat, and eight vibrating/massage options.

Here’s a video about the pressure points you should consider.

Be Informed!

Some of the chairs’ websites have a disclaimer that it may take a few months to construct the chair due to continued COVID impacts like availability of supplies.

Sometimes I include affiliate links where I earn a small fee if you buy a product. I have an affiliate relationship with Amazon, so if you purchase products I have advertised here, I will receive a referral fee.


Was this helpful? I hope so. I wish for everyone that is considering an electric recliner to find the best chair for their situation. Ease and comfort are so important as we age! Any comments or questions are welcome.
