Sizing

Choosing the size of your rise and recline chair is one of the most important, if not the most important, aspects to consider. A well fitted chair will offer you supreme comfort and support. When choosing a chair it is important to take a few keys measurements to ensure that your chair has the appropriate space yet is not too big. When advising our customers for a rise and recline chair we take measurements and ask for lengths across the following 3 areas:

  • Length of legs – From hips to toes
  • Width – the size across the chair
  • Chair back height – from the top of the skull to the base of the back

By understanding these sizes we are able to recommend a chair that will provide the full benefits of support and comfort to relieve pressure across vulnerable joints and areas. At McCarthy Mobility Furniture we are proud to offer a range of rise and recline chairs to suit your needs as well as a custom, made to measure option. Our standard range of chairs are available in petite, standard and grand.

Duel or single motor?

When choosing your rise and recline it is important to decide on what type of motor configuration to choose. A single motor chair has one motor that controls both the footrest and the back of the chair. As your feet rise your back will start to recline the chair to a comfortable position. A single motor will then raise you to an almost standing position for you to be able to easily exit the chair. Dual motor rise and recline chairs differ in the sense that there are two separate motors that control both the footrest and the back of the chair. This means that you can move bothe the back and footrest independently to one another.

Style and Design

The style and design of your rise and recline chair is an important aspect to consider. At McCarthy Mobility Furniture we understand the importance of creating a rise and recline chair that is not only comfortable but stylish.

Fabric Options and Finishes

Choosing which material you want really does affect the final appearance of your chair. You’ve got all your technological parts in place but what about the final look? Leather is easily maintainable whereas fabric can be a tough maintenance job, however, fabric offers a lot more colours and patterns than leather. Leather ages well and gets softer over the years whereas fabric can get marked and damaged easier. Fabric tends to be warmer and cosier than leather but ultimately, it is down to personal preference.
