How many motors are needed in a lift chair?

The number of motors needed for a lift chair will depend on a variety of factors including weight capacity, the needs of the user, and the number of chair positions.

A basic lift chair will have one motor that will lift and recline the user. An infinite position lift chair, on the other hand, offers 2 motors that allow the user to adjust the head and foot rests independently. There are even bariatric lift chairs, with 3 motors, that are designed to accommodate individuals that weigh up to 700 lbs.
