Find out more about how our electric recliners work, as well as tips on how to use them.

Our electric recliner chairs for the elderly are designed to be simple and easy to use. If you’re thinking of purchasing an electric recliner, this guide outlines exactly how they work and how to use them.


How do electric recliner chairs work?

Our electric recliner chairs have dual motors, which means that the footrest and backrest can move independently from one another.

This feature gives users greater control and flexibility, allowing them to adjust the reclining positions of these components separately to find the most comfortable and supportive seating position.


How to use an electric recliner chair?

Our electric recliner chairs come with an easy-to-use handset that allows you to create a customised seating position for your needs and preferences.

Here are tips and tricks on how to use your electric recliner:

  1. Attach the electric recliner chair to a power source
  2. Turn on the recliner chair; this could be done using the remote control or a switch on the chair
  3. Familiarise yourself with the buttons and functions on the remote control. For example:
  • Reclining the backrest
  • Raising the footrest
  • Resetting the chair to an upright position
  1. Use the handset to recline the backrest and raise the footrest
  2. Relax and enjoy the comfort of your electric recliner chair
  3. When you’re ready, use the remote control to return the electric recliner to the upright position before standing.


How do heat and massage recliner chairs work?

Heat and massage recliner chairs offer a soothing and relaxing experience while also helping to alleviate muscle tension and joint pain. The heating and massage components are strategically placed through the seat and backrest.

You can operate the heat and massage functions using the corresponding buttons on your remote control. Simply turn them on or off using these buttons on the remote control.


How much electricity does a recliner chair use?

The amount of electricity an electric recliner uses depends on the specific model of the chair. Trying to remember to turn off your recliner chair when not in use is an easy way to reduce the amount of electricity used when sitting on standby.
