Single motor chairs
On these single motor riser recliner chairs one single motor controls all the functions on the chair.
The footrest, the back and also riser system.
Whilst this means you will only have 2 buttons on the handset and the price is less than a dual motor chair there are limitations to the help it will give you.
The draw back is that you cannot adjust the back of the chair to you optimum angle and then adjust the footrest independently to the back.
Dual motor chairs
As the described, a dual motor riser recliner is where two motors control the chair.
An independent motor operates the backrest whilst the other motor operates the footboard and riser function.
Each of the motors have separate buttons and the handset is clearly marked to show you what the buttons do.
With dual motor rise and recline chairs, the user has more flexibility in determining a position that they find comfortable.
This flexibility makes dual motor chairs a very popular chair with elderly and disabled users.
