  • Easy-to-use control systems
  • Light-emitting LED buttons
  • British-manufactured
  • Highly adaptable chair


The Essex Hudson dual motor lift chair operates the backrest and footrest separately, using a dual motor design. Available in a range of different fabrics. The Hudson range of British-manufactured lift chairs is new to the pride Essex Hudson mobility family. Teaming up with a UK Manufacturer has allowed us to bring you a range of highly adaptable chairs with that classic, unmistakable British quality. Featuring a choice of 3 separate back supports: Lumber, Lateral and Waterfall, the Hudson range offers out-of-the-box comfort, allowing every user to find their perfect position.

Simple, easy to use control systems. Each of our lift chairs comes with a simple ease-use control system. Each control has light-emitting LED buttons and intelligent technology, which automatically switches the chair off after 20 seconds of being stationary. The front and rear wheels help to position your lift chair. The simple, easy-to-use, quick connector lead is standard in all our ranges. We are enabling you to adjust your lead without breakage.

Why single or double motor

Single motor chairs

A single-motor riser recliner chair is where one motor controls all of the electric functions on the chair. For example, the backrest, footrest and riser functions are all operated through a single set of buttons. The chair can be put into a fully reclined position with the backrest reclined and the footrest raised, all by pressing the recline button. Next, the chair moves into a raised sit-to-stand position by pressing the rise button. The backrest will rise while the footrest drops, and then the whole chair will rise, all through that single motor.

Single-motor rise and recline chairs are less expensive than dual-motor riser chairs. This is because the single motor operation and simplistic controls are less costly to produce and, as a result, are less expensive to buy.

Dual motor chairs

As the name suggests, a dual motor riser recliner is where two motors control the chair. One motor operates the backrest whilst the other motor operates the footrest and riser function. Each motor has its own set of buttons, and you will notice the chair’s handset control has four buttons.

With the dual motor rise and recline chairs, the user has more flexibility in determining a position that they find comfortable. Furthermore, by reclining the backrest independently of the other functions, users can create very different seated positions for a single motor chair. This flexibility makes dual motor chairs more popular with elderly and disabled users.
