Lift chairs have different weight capacities due to the size and style of our lift chair models. The first step is to obtain your weight to determine which model is capable of lifting you safely. If you are near one of these limits, we highly recommend the larger capacity chair. You do not want to exceed these limits. Not only is it unsafe, but it will also void all warranties.
To obtain the next three measurements, you must think of yourself in a seated position. Your body will be flexed at the knee and at the base of your back. Your hips will spread wider across the seat. To provide the most comfort, we recommend these measurements be made accordingly.
The floor to top of seat height should be measured from the bottom of your foot to the top of the back of the knee. You should be able to comfortably place your feet on the floor while in a seated position. If the floor to seat height is too tall, this will cause your feet to hang above the floor. If the floor to seat height is too small, your knees will be uncomfortably elevated. This also affects the seat depth and leg extension.
