They come with different back styles. These offer you varying levels of support. New rise and recline armchairs also come with an ‘anti-trap’ safety feature, so that the chair will not operate if something is caught in it. Other models require a key or password before the handset can be used, preventing accidental misuse by children or others.
You have Different Styles to Choose From - Pillowback, Standard Back, Button Back ...
They also come with either one or two motors. A chair with one motor is not as adjustable as a chair that has two motors. On the models that have two motors, the footrest and back rest adjust independently of each other. On a single motor model, the back rest and footrest are adjusted at the same time.
Single Motor Chairs - have two control buttons which work both the foot-plate and the back of the recliner armchair at the same time. Single motor chairs do not fully recline. It is normal for the recline to only go back to an angle of 45 degrees.
Dual Motor Chairs - These have two motors. Two control buttons work with the first motor to move the footplate in and outward. Then another two control buttons work with the other motor to move the back of the recliner chair forward and backwards.
This gives the ultimate in flexibility and allows you to find a reclined seating position to suit you. In addition, a dual motor chair will recline fully, so is ideal if you may need to sleep in your chair on occasions.
The upwards rising function of a riser/ recliner chair is exactly the same, no matter whether the chair has a single or dual motor.
