Choosing the chair with the correct number of positions can be confusing. Not sure what all of this means? Check out our Pride® Power Lift Recliner Guide.
The 2-position TV recline is achievable on all Pride® and VivaLift® Power Recliners. This is a comfortable position for performing many relaxing activities. Read a book, watch television, work on your tablet or enjoy conversation with family and friends with a 2-position lift chair.
The 3-position full recline is available on most Pride and all VivaLift! Power Lift Recliner models and puts you in a position ideal for napping or relaxing.
An infinite position Power Lift Recliner enables the backrest and footrest to move independently from one another so that a variety of positions can be reached. Infinite position chairs are great for taking a nap. Some models may have the Trendelenburg position, which elevates one’s feet higher than their head for increased comfort and relaxation. Other models may have zero gravity positioning where one’s thighs and lower legs are higher than one’s torso.

Your authorized Pride provider has a special form that your physician must fill out. Take this form (or have your provider send it) to your doctor. It contains several questions about your condition that will help determine whether Medicare may cover it.
