Planet Lift Chairs - The Institutionals

The Institutional group includes the Mars and Earth models. These two chair models were designed for a more institutional setting and offer some unique features that I'm not sure any other manufacturer offers. These chairs operate in the same manner as all other lift chair but they also include a vertical lift, removable arms and removable shoulder wings.

The idea is that the the chair can be fully reclined, elevated to the height of a bed and with the arms and shoulder wings removed the user can be slid directly onto or off of the chair with a side transfer movement and minimal lifting. As far as I know, they are the only chairs that don't require the user to stand to transfer into or out of them.

These chairs are also equipped with 3" locking casters and a rear push bar for transporting the patient/user. When the chair is elevated, either normally or vertically, the front casters are lifted off the floor creating more stability.

These chairs also have incontinent proof upholstery as a standard feature but are only available in an earth grey colour.

Features common to all these chairs

  • Lounger style that fully supports the legs (no gap between footrest and seat)
  • Easy to use hand control
  • Maximum seat elevation with superb stability in full lift position
  • Wide construction provides greater side to side stability
  • High Quality steel base for durability and cross supports
  • Engineered bushings and washers at pivot points provide quiet smooth operation and durability
  • Direct drive activation synchronizes right and left sides for easy opening
  • Low voltage motor, 24 volt, UL approved
  • Battery backup
  • Three Position
  • 4 Locking casters included
  • The spring assisted footrest to minimize injury or damage to anything it contacts when lowering
