At Pride Mobility, we make devices for all body types. Inside our stable, we have power lift recliners designed for people under 5 feet 3 inches and above 6 feet tall. The tall and lanky among us no longer have to crunch up in tiny chairs or watch their legs hang off the footrest at the knee.

Pride’s Power Lift Recliners come in many styles and fabrics. We also offer an impressive array of features like heat, massage and infinite positioning. But for now, let’s look closer at some different models that are suitable for people who stand over 5 feet 10 inches tall.

Selecting a Power Lift Recliner for your Size

Our power lift recliners come in several sizes — from petite to very heavy duty. The smallest chairs are made for people under 5 feet 3 inches and the largest are for people who are 6 feet 1 inch tall and above. You might assume a big spacious chair would be good for everyone. It turns out, Goldilocks was onto something: there is a perfect chair for everyone.

Pride Mobility Power Lift Recliners are designed so that your feet hang over the end when reclined. With your heel resting beyond the footrest, the weight of your legs is on the back of your calves. If your heels are sitting on the footrest, all the weight is on the heel. This eventually gets uncomfortable.

Many of our recliners have three-inch foot extensions. This added piece sits below the end of the footrest. The foot extender allows your weight to distribute across both legs, while giving your feet support and comfort.
