Electric Power Lift Recliner Sizing & Fit

Here’s what’s important:

Fitting the chair to the person, not the person to the chair.

Fitting the person to the chair and ‘settling’ for something close will inevitably lead to pressure points and discomfort. And with an investment of that size, you should get all the comfort you deserve!

Often, when clients look for a power recliner with massage and heat features, what they’re really looking for is pain relief. The wrong fit or size chair can cause pressure points and therefore discomfort. When you choose the correct size and fit for your power recliner chair, you’re eliminating and preventing pressure points.


AHHS SeatedMeasure


Recliner chairs are not “one size fits all”. Quite the opposite! We have many different sizes of chairs.

Seat Height – The most important measurement is foot to seat height. Your feet must be on the floor in a natural sitting position.

Seat Depth & Width – Power recliner lift chairs are built so that the seat depth and width are proportionate to the seat height. However, there are also models with extra wide seats for alternate comfort positions (ultimate for some!)

Seat Back – Not all bodies are built the same! Some people have short legs and a long torso. Some have long legs, short torso and many fit the ‘just average’. Therefore the seat back height is equally important for finding the right fit for comfort and posture.


There are a few measurements that will help you find the right size chair and they are:

  • 1 – Seat to floor measurement (from the back of the knee to your heel with your heels on the floor)
  • 2 – Seat Depth measurement (from inside your knee to the back of the chair)
  • 3 – Seat Height measurement (from the seat to the top of your head)
  • BONUS–Seat Width (some models have an extra wide option)

These few basic measurements will help guide you in finding the correct fitting chair for your comfort. With this understanding, you can visit our store, try out some models or continue on and learn more.
