Lift chairs are designed to help people stand up from a seated position. With the push of a button, the user can recline or be lifted to a position where they can comfortably stand up. Lift chairs are differentiated by the degree of recline they can reach, their recline mechanism, and position of the footrest. Lift chairs often go by other names such as Lift Recliners and Power Lift Recliners.

There are three different types of lift chairs: two-position, three-position and infinite position.
Two-position lift chairs have a reclining range of 45 degrees. For many, this is a comfortable position for reading and watching TV.
Three-position lift chairs can recline to an almost flat position and can stop at any degree of recline in between. It is possible to nap comfortably in this chair as well as read and watch TV.
Infinite lift chairs (also known as zero-gravity or full recline) can recline into a flat position (where the backrest is parallel to the floor) and everything in between. Some models can lift a person’s feet above his/her head into the Trendelenburg position or lift a person’s feet above their heart into the zero-gravity position.
