Rise and recline chairs – 5 best in 2020

Rise and recline chairs can be a huge benefit for somebody with mobility issues. They are particularly popular with disabled adults and the elderly, due to their ease of use and superior comfort.

Just like orthopaedic chairs they offer the user lots of support. But due to their built in motor and flexible design, they can also offer a wide range of different seating positions

A good rise and recline chair will rise to almost standing position. This makes sitting and standing much easier, requiring far less effort when entering a seating position, or standing up from your chair.  Most chairs will also be able to adjust through a full range of sitting positions, allowing you to find the perfect comfortable position.

Rise and recline chairs are usually controlled with an easy to use handheld device. This is conveniently stored on the side of the chair, in either a pocket or strap for easy access. By using the remote you can move the chair through a full range of positions. These will usually range from almost full standing, to almost fully laid down.

How much do Rise and recline Chairs Cost?

Rise and recline chairs can vary in price quite a bit. At the low end you could be paying under £200. But, at the high end they can easily cost £1000+. Below we have listed our top 5 rise and recline chairs. All of these are in the mid to low price range, so none of them cost over £500 and the lowest is under £300.

Burlington riser recliner

The Burlington rise and recline chair comes in 4 different colours. These are, beige, brown, grey and wine. It is slightly more expensive than the previous two options.

Due to this you can choose from an even wider range of seating or lying positions.
