The Ultimate Riser Recliner Handbook


Curious about what a riser recliner is and how to choose the ideal one for yourself?

Curious about what a riser recliner is and how to choose the ideal one for yourself?

Don't worry; Miracle Mobility is your trusted guide. A riser recliner chair is like a magic armchair – it smoothly reclines and lifts, making sitting down and getting up a breeze, all at the push of a button. These comfy chairs come in single and dual-motor designs, offering luxurious relaxation like no other.


At Miracle Mobility, our riser recliners are more than just furniture; they're your support system for a well-rested life.

Exploring Riser Recliners: Single vs. Dual Motor

You might be wondering, what sets these models apart? Let's dive right in.

Single Motor Riser Recliner: Simple Comfort

Dual Motor Riser Recliner: Unleash Versatility

A single motor riser recliner is perfect for those seeking straightforward comfort. Here's how it works: with just one motor, when the chair reclines, both the backrest and footplate move in unison. It's a practical choice, but there's a limit – single motor chairs recline up to 45 degrees.

Now, let's talk dual motor riser recliners. As the name suggests, these chairs boast two motors. One controls the footrest, while the other manages the backrest. This means you get incredible flexibility – you can independently adjust the leg rest, fully recline, and find your sweet spot with ease.

Discovering Your Perfect Size Recliner

Choosing the Right Chair for Your Size and Weight

Standard Recliners:

These are the most common and versatile recliner sizes. They offer a comfortable seat and backrest and are suitable for individuals of average height and weight.

Oversized Reciners:

Designed for extra comfort, oversized recliners provide more seating space and are ideal for taller individuals or those who prefer a roomier feel. They can also accommodate users with a larger frame.

Small or Petite Recliners:

These compact recliners are perfect for smaller living spaces or individuals with a petite stature. They offer the relaxation of a recliner without taking up too much room.

Wall-Hugger Recliners:

Wall-hugger or space-saving recliners are designed to fit close to the wall, making them an excellent choice for smaller rooms. 

To identify the best size option for you, consider the following:

Choosing the Right Chair for Your Size and Weight

Height and Weight:

Take your height and weight into account. Taller individuals may find oversized recliners more comfortable, while smaller or petite users may prefer compact options.

Body Comfort:

Sit in various recliner sizes to assess which one offers the most comfortable and supportive fit. Pay attention to the seat depth, backrest height, and armrest width.

Room Size:

Measure your living space to ensure the recliner fits comfortably without overcrowding the room. Wall-hugger recliners are particularly useful in tight spaces.

Lifestyle and Preferences:

Consider how you plan to use the recliner. Do you want extra space to snuggle up with a book, or are you looking for a sleek, space-saving design? 

Fabric or leather riser recliner chairs? 

When it comes to recliner chairs, one of the key decisions you'll make is choosing between leather and fabric upholstery. Each option offers a unique set of advantages to cater to your comfort and style preferences:

Leather Recliners:

Fabric Recliners:

Leather is synonymous with luxury and sophistication. Leather recliners exude timeless elegance and are remarkably easy to clean, making them an excellent choice for households with children or pets.

They offer a smooth, cool texture and can withstand the test of time, developing a rich patina over the years. Leather recliners are a symbol of class and comfort, ideal for those who appreciate a touch of opulence in their living space.

Fabric recliners, on the other hand, are all about coziness and versatility. They come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures, allowing you to find the perfect match for your home decor.

Fabric recliners offer a soft, warm feel and are incredibly comfortable to snuggle into. They're also breathable, making them an excellent choice for those who feel hot and humid often.

Financial Support

If you find that a Riser Recliner chair is essential to enhance your quality of life or to manage specific medical conditions, it's worth exploring potential financial support options. Your local authority may offer assistance, although the eligibility criteria can vary. We recommend reaching out to your local council to schedule a meeting and inquire about available funding.
