Frequently Asked Questions.
A measurement guide for the right sizing of compression socks
An adjustable two-position lift chair does not change the angle between the backrest and the seat when it reclines, and the footrest is raised. The backrest of a three-position lift chair reclines back further, opening the angle between the backrest and the seat when the chair is reclining, and the footrest is going up. As a result, the chair can recline more deeply into a "napper" or "sleeper" position.
How much weight can Golden Lift Chairs support?
The weight capacity of most Golden Technologies lifts chairs ranges between 350 and 375 pounds. A MaxiComforter Lift Chair with extra-wide seats can support a maximum weight of 500 pounds.
Can I get a lift chair that rocks or swivels?
Not likely. We all experience a loss of strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, vision, and reaction time as we grow older. Therefore, to protect clients' safety and prevent falls, we recommend a sturdy chair that does not rock or swivel. Swivel chairs make it more challenging to get up.
Is it possible to add heat and massage to a medical recliner chair?
You can upgrade some lift chairs with heat and massage. There is a separate remote for heat and massage on the Golden Technologies lift chairs. Features include the ability to set a low or high heat, a wave or pulse massage setting, and an independently adjustable speed and intensity setting.
