What is the best riser recliner chair? These are the best lift chairs in the UK
Everyone who is looking for a lift chair is obviously looking for the best riser recliner chair they can at the best price. There are recliner chairs for the elderly with single motors, dual motors, massage. Chairs with button back, T-back and waterfall back. That is even before you begin to look at the range of fabrics, comfort and user weight limits. All of the above make it very difficult to write this article of riser recliner chair reviews, but I am going to attempt to put together our own personal favourite list of 5 best riser recliner chairs. We took in to account user feedback, functionality, design and reliability when putting together this list of the best recliner chairs.
I have tried to include a reclining armchair on this list that will suit everyone, the elderly, disabled, large person and small person.
5: The Canterbury
You will generally find that when looking for the best riser recliner chair that includes massage, you will be looking the best part of £1,000. The Canterbury lift chair offers users the chance to pay less and get the benefit of having a dual motor chair, in leather no less. The leather means that this reclining chair is very easy to clean. This is probably the best value recliner chair here, well worthy of a place on this list.
With a long list of great reviews, the Canterbury black leather recliner chair is well worth a look if you on the search for a quality, relatively cheap recliner chair.

4: The Axbridge
The Axbridge dual motor recliner chair by Fenetic Wellbeing is an excellent recliner which is available exclusively on Amazon and on the Fenetic Wellbeing website. Being a dual motor chair, the Axbridge allows for the footrest and backrest to operated independantly for maximum user comfort.
We found this to be a reliable recliner chair which is easy to operate thanks to it’s simple to operate 4 button handset. Sometimes with dual motor chairs, the handset can be overly-complicated, but this is not the case.
The Riva is an excellent lift chair, perfect for an elderly relative. Available in 3 beautiful fabrics, the Riva boasts great feedback from customers thanks to it’s excellent looks and superb performance.
Supplied with this recliner is a simple to use, 4 button remote. If you are buying this chair you should be aware that it does not have an emergency battery backup in case of power cut.

2: The Hainworth
It was a close call. I was really close to calling the Hainworth number 1. When you think about what you need in a chair, I think of 3 things; comfort, function and price. The Hainworth ticks all three boxes. With dual motor function, massage and heat included, plus the chair is made of leather, it was difficult to come up with a better chair than this.
When I thought about putting together a page about riser recliner chair reviews, I already knew that the Hainworth would be on the list.
The massage and heat features are what makes this lift chair stand out.

1: The Oldbury
The Oldbury is like a hidden gem. It is not available in most mobility outlets and can be found more or less exclusively on Amazon. A friend recently purchased this chair for a parent and have since commented that it has made such a difference that they would have gladly paid double what was paid. The Oldbury is especially good for elderly people or those with memory problems or issues such as arthritis, thanks to it’s easy to operate remote control.
The attractive fabric adds to quality of this chair. It has a silent lift and recline motor that has proven to be very reliable and is also capable of lifting upto 23st. The word budget sometimes bring negative feeling in terms of quality, that is not the case here, this is quality at a budget price.
We fully recommend the Oldbury as the best riser recliner chair and best in class. The Oldbury is a highly recommended mobility aid.

I hope that you found a chair in this list of the best value recliner chairs that is suitable for you. I use the word value and not cheap because there is a big difference, cheap just means it has a low price regardless of quality. Value means that you are getting a quality product for a good price.
I have tried to include at least one chair that will be suitable for everyone but it is not always possible. If you have not found anything suitable please see the riser recliner category.
We are always updating this page so if we have any more riser recliner chair reviews to share with you, they will be added here.
