Choose the mechanism
Chairs can be made with a variety of movements and the options are:
2-way Tilt-in-Space : This riser recliner chair has a single motor action that maintains the angle between the seat and the back when reclined. Tilt-in-Space movement is particularly useful for those with hip, back and delicate skin conditions as the angle between the back and the seat never changes.
3-way Traditional Recliner: This is probably the chair that most people think of as a traditional riser recliner chair. It has single motor operation where the angle between the back and the seat increases as the chair is reclined.
Dual Motor: This mechanism allows the leg rest and the back to be operated independently of each other, achieving an infinite number of sitting and reclined positions. This allows the user to sit upright with their legs fully elevated to a horizontal position, or to be fully reclined, or indeed any where in between these positions.
Dual Motor Tilt-in-Space : This action reclines in the same way as a Tilt-in-Space chair, which is particularly useful for those with hip, back and delicate skin conditions. In addition, an infinite combination of leg and backrest positions can be achieved.
Choosing a style
To personalise your Theraposture made to measure chair, you can choose from a variety of backrest styles and different armrest designs. With this extensive range ready to choose from, every Theraposture chair blends effortless in your home, whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look. The choice of back style include:
Button back with wings: a traditional, single cushion design with small delicate wings

Lateral support back with wings: an enhanced two-cushion design with additional side supports
Top spilt cushion without wings: a supportive backrest design with a smaller top cushion for particular postural requirements
Split lumber back without wings: a stylish backrest design with a smaller lower cushion for particular postural requirements
Once you have selected your ideal backrest, you can then choose from a selection of armrest options. These include:
Half scroll arm: a standard design that provides a contemporary look
Full scroll arm: this style delivers a more traditional feel to your made to measure chair
Light or dark wooden knuckle ends: as an attractive addition, these offer a solid area that is easy to grip and helps when exiting your chair
Drop Down arms: this option is particularly useful if you need to regularly transfer from a wheelchair or your carer needs hoist access. Each arm can be easily slotted downwards so temporarily there are no sides on your chair that could interfere with side ways access.
Removable arm: an alternative to the drop down arm, this option is a real help when regularly transferring sideways on a wheelchair or commode.
