5 Ways to Enjoy a Power Recliner


Elevate your life with a power recliner from Ultramatic

These days we’re spending a lot more time at home in order to stay safe – and when we’re not sleeping, we’re probably sitting. Since we’re in our chairs more than usual lately, it’s important to think about the way they can impact our posture, health, and quality of life.

If your chair or sofa may be getting a bit worn, a power lift recliner is something to consider. They can add comfort to your everyday activities, give you more independence, and improve your health & mobility.

Power recliners look like traditional recliners, but they house hidden electric motors that quietly glide you into the perfect seated position for relaxation, and can assist you into a standing position. The motors can recline the back of the chair, elevate the footrest, and even raise the entire seat—all with the push of a button.

Today’s power recliners are stylish, come in a range of colours and fabrics, and have modern features that can boost your health and your enjoyment.

Read, watch TV, and play games in total comfort

On a lazy afternoon or quiet evening, there’s nothing better than diving into a book, binge-watching a new series on TV, playing games online, or catching up with friends on Facebook. Using the wired remote, a power recliner can help you get into the perfect position so you can sit comfortably for hours at a time. And many chairs now come with built-in USB chargers so your phone or tablet will always be charged.

Relax and sleep

A comfortable chair is important. One that offers additional features that enhance relaxation is icing on the cake. For instance, a massage feature invigorates tired muscles, and the built-in heat feature on some models can help relieve arthritis pain with therapeutic warmth.

To perfectly adjust the chair for maximum relaxation, use the wired backlit hand control or simply press the preset memory position available on many models to glide into the Zero-Gravity position. This position elevates your feet to the same level as your chest, enabling your heart to pump easier and reducing your heart rate so you can fall asleep faster. It’s never been easier to nap!

Improve your posture and relieve pressure

With up to four electric motors built into a power recliner, there’s no excuse for not having the right posture—which truly does add years to a healthy spine. In fact, the simple act of elevating your legs reduces a lot of strain on the back.

Some chairs also feature the Lumbar-Booster™, which provides additional support for your lower back and promotes better posture. And if you suffer from shoulder or neck pain, the optional Pillow-Tilt™ feature will help reduce strain in those areas. Even the seat can be made from pressure-relieving CertiPUR™ memory foam or NanoGel™.

Relieve pain and boost wellness

Improving your posture will certainly reduce muscle pain, but it can also improve your wellness in other ways. If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure or cardiac issues, power recliners can give your health a much-needed boost. Customizing your sitting and napping position, especially when in the Zero-Gravity position, can increase blood flow and improve your circulation.

In addition, instead of having to nap upright, a reclined sleep position opens up the lung passages and makes it easier to breathe.  And if your legs tend to swell, elevating them can help relieve the swelling.

Work from home and gain independence

A power recliner is versatile, working just as well as a workstation as it does a spot for ultimate relaxation. You might find that the power recliner is more ergonomic than most office chairs.  You can unchain yourself from your desk and send your emails, crunch those numbers, or even write your memoirs!

Being able to work from anywhere gives you flexibility and independence. But perhaps best of all, a power recliner is future-proofed for a time when your legs may not be as strong as they once were, because the lift feature can raise you into a standing position without adding any strain on your hips or leg muscles. That means you may be able to stay in your home longer without caregivers and maintain your mobility.

It all begs the question: What can’t a power recliner do for you?
