There are a lot off innovative features and functions that make contemporary tilt chairs desirable. Your specific needs will determine the tilt chair you choose, including the seat depth, seat width, seat height, weight capacity, headrest and more, and here are a few functional possibilities.
Rising: The seat and armrests slowly raise up so you can stand comfortably. As the seat goes up it also tips forward, helping you to stand. Sitting is easy also; simply position yourself on the raised seat and lower the recliner into a comfy position at the push of a button.
Reclining: For people suffering arthritis and other ailments, and those dealing with back pain, a recliner chair from Easy Care is the answer. This chair will position you for different activities: watching TV, reading, writing, etc. If you sit for long periods a recliner chair will help you adjust your position for better comfort and circulation.
Lie Back: Some tilt chair recliners are designed so you can lay back with your legs out straight. A chair is not a bed, unless specially designed, although tilt back chairs are incredibly comfortable and made for optimal relaxation.
Tilt In Space: Tilt chairs help to relieve pressure and soreness, and in some cases the entire chair including seat, back rest and leg rest all tip back. Your weight is supported and spread evenly, relieving pressure and pain.
