The Sussex dual motor lift chair operates the backrest and footrest separately, using a dual motor design. The tilt-in-space enables higher leg elevation (known as the Trendelenburg position) for improved circulation, as your ankles can be elevated higher than your heart. There is no friction or shear when the tilt is in operation as the seat angle remains constant.
The Sussex also offers all of the benefits of a dual motor chair, allowing independent movement of the back and footrest so you can achieve the optimum seating position to suit your needs. Supporting up to 20 stone, the Sussex is available in three new fabrics; the Sussex is a stylish chair that will grace any living room. The three-step waterfall design backrest offers great levels of comfort and support if you need to stay in the chair for longer periods of time.

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.
