This is a chair bed review for anybody confused between a reclining chair and a chair bed. The good folks at Mobility Shopper have created this review that not only explains the differences but also offers links to dedicated suppliers to seek more information including cost, seating and sleeping positions, delivery etc.
Riser Recliner Chair:
This type of chair is designed to help the less mobile to get from a seated position to a standing position with ease as well as to recline for comfort or to find the best position for pain relief. There a basically two models of riser recliner chair. 1st reclines leaving the footrest in place, the 2nd has a dual motor that enables the footrest to be adjusted independently for greater comfort. Both are electrically operated.
Riser Recliner Chair Bed:
The Chair bed is also a riser recliner chair but has greater adjustment for sleeping and is designed to offers a complete sleeping solution for anybody unable to sleep in their existing bed, this may be because they are unable to get to the bedroom (upper floor room for example) or because sleeping in a standard bed is uncomfortable or painful. Chair beds are not just designed for seating comfort, that enable you to use your chair as a bed
The cost between a riser recliner chair and a chair bed is often minimal so even if the chair would only occasionally be used to sleep in it becomes more viable to purchase a chair bed. Some people purchase a chair bed instead of a foldaway bed settee simply because it takes up less room and can always double up as a bed for the night for that unexpected guest.
