What is a Riser Recliner Chair?

Riser recliner chairs are specially designed electric chairs that can recline and raise users from seated to standing with the touch of a button. These chairs are suitable for those who struggle to stand or sit on a normal sofa or armchair, and those who enjoy sitting in a reclined position and want to elevate their comfort.

How Do Riser Recliner Chairs Work?

Recliner riser chairs run off mains' power and have in-built motors to rise and recline the chair. The chair is then operated by a handheld control connected to the chair’s motors. At the press of a button, the riser recliner gently and safely adjusts to the desired position – which goes from being fully reclined to fully risen.

What is the Difference Between Single and Dual Motor Riser Recliner Chairs?

Recliner riser chairs come in two types: single motor and dual motor. Single motor riser recliner chairs have one built-in motor that controls the backrest and legrest together. These riser recliners can recline to a relaxed position.

Dual motor riser recliner chairs, on the other hand, have two motors - one for the backrest and one for the footrest. This means they can be controlled individually so more seated positions can be created. Dual motor riser recliner chairs can also fully recline to a flat position.

Crafted from Quality Materials 

Every Opera riser recliner chair is designed and handcrafted in Europe, using an aesthetic upholstery that ensures durability, extra comfortable padding and a plush finish. This means you can enjoy the benefits of our riser and recliner chairs for many years to come.

Our riser recliner chairs are also made around you. Every Opera riser recliner is customisable with fabric, size and moto options so you can build your perfect chair. Customers can also choose from petite, standard and grande sizes, allowing you to find the perfect fit.

Built for Enhanced Comfort and Support

An Opera riser recliner not only looks the part, but it feels it too. Unlike many chairs on the market, our electric riser recliner chairs come with tilt-in-space as a standard feature. This position helps to maintain postural stability and in turn, superior comfort. 

Our riser recliner chairs also offer crucial support by raising 6 inches before gently tilting, making it easier to get in and out of your seat. For those with swelling in the legs or feet, our automatic heel plinth extenders provide a comfortable resting place for your heels - and are built into all of our chairs. 

Affordable Options Available

Purchasing furniture to facilitate care needs for yourself or a loved one can be a big financial commitment. Take advantage of Klarna Finance and make your purchase a financially comfortable experience. 

At Opera Beds, we present a viable solution through our credit finance option. This allows you to seamlessly distribute the costs over flexible terms of 6, 12, 18, and 24 months, coupled with a compellingly competitive annual percentage rate (APR) of 9.9%.

For extra reassurance for those who need it, every Opera riser recliner comes with a free 5-year warranty, so you can make sure you’re fully satisfied with your purchase - and your chair meets every one of your expectations.
