When choosing a power lift recliner for a short person, it is necessary to consider several factors, including the chair design and dimensions and the size and height of the person.
The seat height of the recliner should be lower than the average seat height to ensure the person's feet can reach the floor comfortably. A seat height of around 18 inches or lower is ideal for a short person.
Also, consider the seat depth as a short person may have difficulty reaching the back of a deeper seat. Recommended a seat depth is around 18 inches or less.
The backrest height should be such that the person's head can rest comfortably against it. A backrest height of around 28 inches or lower is ideal for a short person.
The footrest should extend fully and support the person's legs comfortably. A power lift recliner with an adjusted footrest to different positions is ideal for a short person.
Armrests should be a fit height for the person to rest their arms comfortably. Armrests that are height adjustable or portable are also ideal for short people.
The recline angle should be such that the person can sit comfortably without straining their neck or back. A recline angle of around 130 degrees or less is ideal for a short person.
Size and weight capacity
The recliner size should be proportionate to the person's body and have a weight capacity that can accommodate the person's weight.
Some power lift recliners also come with additional features such as heating, and massage, which are handy for a short person.
