Power Lift Chairs: More Than Meets The Eye

When we think of home comfort aids, we often think of large, ungainly pieces of furniture that wouldn’t be out of place in a medical setting, dressed in plain fabrics and ugly colours. But, with today’s power lift chair offerings, that’s no longer the case!

GS&Co carries two fantastic brands of power lift chairs. The first is Ultra Comfort, which is geared toward those who spend a lot of time in their chairs. Elran, our second brand, offers smaller lift chairs with more elegant silhouettes and a ton of custom fabric options so that your chair will fit in with your personal style. 

Established in 1967, Elran is a Canadian company specializing in motion furniture. They offer a full range of reclining chairs, loveseats, and sofas in a variety of comfortable designs that range from timeless to contemporary. Elran is a leader in the field of motion furniture and is constantly fine-tuning its recliner mechanisms, becoming the very definition of comfort. 

Equally important are their style options. Elran offers more than 550 different upholstery options, from luxurious leathers to comfortable fabrics, meaning that your power chair can fit seamlessly with the rest of your decor – no matter your style.

For those needing more custom options, there is UltraComfort. Born out of the shared goal of “building it right the first time,” UltraComfort was launched in 1985 with the vision of building power recliners with lift in a whole new way. 

UltraComfort, our second brand, realizes that no two people are the same. Every person is a different size and shape and has different needs in terms of comfort and style. So UltraComfort brought in experts in upholstery, furniture design and sewing and created entirely new positioning technologies because they believe that everybody deserves a high-quality power lift recliner that lives up to its lifetime warranty. 

Despite being medical equipment, these UltraComfort power lift chairs don’t look like it. Comfortable? Inviting? A stylish recliner with over 30 colours to choose from? All yes – and it can still get you into the Trendelenburg position. 

Because a lift chair is a mobility assistive device and is considered a medical expense, if you can provide an official written medical order from a physician, you will not have to pay the sales tax on the chair at the time of purchase. 

As the owner of a lift chair, you can also receive a tax break by declaring the purchase of your lift chair as a medical expense in your yearly income tax report, which will get you a certain percentage as a return on your initial investment.

If you or a loved one are in need of an assistive device to make daily life more comfortable, GS&Co is your destination in White Rock to find the perfect power lift chair. Let us help you make life more accessible.
