Positions of the Recliner Chairs

There are numerous features of the electric recliners. Some of the main features are explained below in detail.

  • Tilt in the Space: This is the position of the recliner at which instead of the backrest is separated from the seat or a gap is created, the entire chair is simply tipped in the backward direction and the seating position is maintained. The tilt in the space is very popular choice. The position is not shearing or rubbing the back and the body position can be elevated above the hips area, therefore the position is famous and of great use. The position is very suitable for those who are having neck problems or the poor trunk control because this position is giving great support to the pelvis area.
  • The Wally Hugging: In case if you are short of space in your house or room then the wall hugging position is the best fit. Instead you are reclining the chair in backward position, the wall hugging position is moving forward the recliner. This position can be easily implemented in a small room having a space of about 10cm/4inches away from the wall. However, the position is requiring more space from the front.

The Controls of the Electric Recliner Chairs

The position of the reclining chairs can be changed while standing, sitting, and reclining as well with the use of the hand operated controls i.e. buttons. However, the controls are varying among different models. Some of the models are having lights which are easy to use while it’s dark, while some are having large buttons having LEDs which are giving up lights when it’s dark. The single motor recliners are having small control panels while the dual motor recliners are having 5 buttons or more. The control of the recliners largely depends on the type of recliner.
