British manufacturers often produce Riser Recliner Chairs in 3 to 4 sizes. Sizes from Petite to Grande will accommodate most people.

The Petite size is ideal for the smaller/shorter build person having a seat height of only 18”. This means a shorter person can sit in a chair in a normal seated position, with their flat feet on the floor. This can also aid circulation.

Single Motor Riser Recliner Chairs

As the name suggests, this type of Riser Recliner Chair has one motor. That single motor operates the rise operation of the chair and the recline operation. The chair will raise you safely into a standing position. The Chair will also recline you by raising your legs and feet and also reclining the backrest.

A good quality Single Motor Riser Recliner will raise your feet to approximately two-thirds height before the backrest automatically starts to recline. The Backrest will recline to an approximate 45-degree angle.

A Single Motor Riser Recliner Chair will usually have a hand control with three buttons. This will include a reset button. If the chair is in the up-position or reclined. Pressing the reset button will return to a normal seated position.

Using the other two buttons you can raise the footrest and lower the backrest at the same time. You cannot operate the footrest and backrest independently. Raising the chair into the standing position takes the pressure off your arms, shoulders, and wrists. This allows you to stand safely, unaided, and with confidence.

Dual Motor Riser Recliner Chairs

Dual Motor Riser Recliner Chairs are the height of luxury. They come in many shapes and sizes…fabrics and leathers.

To operate a Dual Motor Riser Recliner Chair there is an easy-to-use touch button hand control. This is usually situated in a convenient pocket at the side of the chair. There are two motors, 1, to operate the footrest and the riser function and the other to operate the backrest.

The footrest can be fully elevated. Or you can stop the footrest at any angle you need. The fully elevating footrest is a great help to sufferers of conditions such as Oedema.

The Dual Motor function is ideal for those who simply want to put their feet up and relax. You can even sit with your feet on the floor and recline back...the choice is yours.

You are totally in control. When rising or reclining you can release the button at any time and the chair will instantly stop moving. 


Riser Recliners are also available in many different fabrics and leathers. You can choose your fabric to match your own decor.

There is internationally recognised rub test called the Martindale Rub Test. The rub score is a measurement of the durability of the fabric, from 10000 and below being suitable for light use such as curtains and cushions, up to 25000 – 30000 rubs for heavy domestic use. Recliner Chairs and other Reclining Furniture put high levels of ware on fabrics and therefore manufacturers must use fabrics that pass the heavy domestic level of rub test. When choosing your fabric a choice of 50 – 100 fabrics is not unusual. Fabrics often include plains, strips, and abstracts, all in a variety of colours.

Draylon has for many years been the preferred choice of many as an upholstery fabric, but as fashions change and the advancement of technology other fabrics have now become more popular. Chenille fabrics are now a common fabric to use in the upholstery of furniture, because of their soft feel and high level of durability.

Vinyls used to be a popular material to use in the upholstery of furniture. Vinyl is still widely used by the medical profession because it is durable, it’s easy to wipe clean and it is also waterproof, ideal for accidents and spillages. The major problem with vinyl it is essentially plastic and though it has easy clean properties it isn’t a breathable material and therefore tends to make you sweat. This can be very uncomfortable for those who have to sit for long periods.

With the advancements in technology and innovative ideas, it is now possible to have a modern bright fabric that is protected against the elements of modern living and still has the positive attributes of vinyl but without the negatives. Aquaclean, the modern day answer to vinyl. Aquaclean is a man made fabric that is water resistant (not waterproof) and can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth, even permanent marker pen ink will simply wipe off. Another property of Aquaclean is it pet proof. A tough membrane backing prevents pet's claws from penetrating the fabric leaving your new furniture protected and looking great. Aquaclean fabrics are modern bright and will suit any décor from traditional to contemporary. Many British manufacturers have now added the Aquaclean fabrics to their ranges including Celebrity Furniture.
