Do you or a loved one have difficulty standing up from a seated position? Could you benefit from having a chair to recline into the bed layout to reduce pressure on your lower back and spine?


Mobility issues caused by joint pain, injuries or other conditions can make enjoying the comforts of a sought-after recliner difficult or even impossible.


La-Z-Boy power lift chairs are the perfect choice for those that need mobility assistance. At the touch of a button, our lift recliners let you comfortably relax and recline, then securely assist you from a sitting to a standing position.


As inventors of the reclining chair back in 1927, you can rest easy knowing your lift recliner possesses 90 years of innovative design experience. Engineered to provide the smoothest, most secure motion, our power lift recliners offer unmatched comfort in every position. 


La-Z-Boy offers four series of power lift chairs: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each series of lift recliners offers different features, including seat scale, weight capacity, clearance from a wall, and options.

One of the main differentiating factors is the ability for the independent footrest and back activation in the gold and platinum series. As a result, there are more options in the controller. Secondly, the bronze and silver recliners have an uncovered, exposed base, which does not have a box-in-box construction. Lastly, the added functionality of zero gravity positioning is only available in platinum series lift chairs.
