  • If you are having a lot of leg weakness and difficulty standing or having difficulty reaching to pull the controller for the recliner you might want to consider a lift chair recliner. If you go for one of those they are more expensive but you can get the Doctor to write an order for one. Most insurance companies and Medicare part B will pay for the motor portion of the chair and then you pay the difference. Make sure you go to a store where you can try them out though as they come in various sizes, heights and degrees of firmness not to mention various colors and material. So please make sure you get one that fits you and you will be comfortable in. Nothing like having a 6ft 2 guy in a chair made for a 5 ft one!
