Once you get a power reclining lift chair, you’ll wonder why you waited so long

The benefits of a power lift chair, and what to look for when making your purchase

Power lift chairs offer all the comfort of a recliner, and then with the touch of a button, the chair can help you transition from a seated to a standing position. They’re a popular choice for people with mobility issues, not only because they ease the burden on bad knees and sore backs, but also because they help prevent potentially catastrophic falls.

Parksville’s M&N Mattress and Sofa Gallery has carried a variety of lift chair brands over the years, but eventually settled on two quality manufacturers: Ultra Comfort and Palliser.

“We’ve tried a few other brands in the past, but the quality wasn’t as high as we liked for our customers,” says Sukh Khakh, M&N Sofa Gallery’s expert on lift chairs. “Power reclining lift chairs can be a significant investment, but we’ve found that the cheaper options often have issues after a year of use. And the less expensive models typically have shorter warranty periods, which can make the repair process frustrating and expensive.”

Medical grade lift chairs

Both Palliser and Ultra Comfort lift chairs are made in North America, and Ultra Comfort lift chairs are even certified as a Class 1 Medical Device.

“Because the Ultra Comfort lift chairs are medical grade, many people also find them helpful for sleeping. Elevating the feet and reclining the torso can help with a range of issues, including back pain and acid reflux,” Sukh says.

Ultra Comfort is the biggest lift chair company in North America, which means you can rely on their customer service if you ever need to use their industry-leading warranty. But since their motto is “Build it right the first time,” hopefully you’ll never have issues with the solid wood frame, electronics and motor, or fabrics and foam. If you do have an issue, award-winning M&N Mattress and Sofa Gallery are well-known for looking after their customers.

Sukh and the knowledgable staff at M&N Mattress and Sofa Gallery can fit you to a chair of the appropriate size for maximum comfort and support, and with a variety of models, colour and fabric options, it’s easy to match your existing decor.

“Lift chairs are also a great solution when you think your partner is being lazy, and you’d like to get them back to work. With the press of a button, they’ll be on their feet!” Sukh laughs.
