- The Absolute Best Review by Jollytoo
I ordered the Zero Gravity Lift Chair by Relax the Back sight unseen, although I had sat in other chairs made by the same manufacturer. I have loved this chair every day since I got it many months ago and would not even consider living without it. The Brisa fabric looks as nice as it did on Day One. So far, the mechanism works flawlessly. The memory foam plus the adjustable air bladder for lumbar support make this chair more comfortable than any other. The neck pillow comes with gobs and gobs of stuffing that can be removed and adjusted to make the chair a perfect fit. The back is as straight as it looks in the photo. There are no curves or bumps to cause a spinal misalignment and with the adjustability of the lumbar and neck supports and the responsiveness of the memory foam I find that my back adjusts itself perfectly while sitting in this chair. As a matter of fact, the first thing I do every morning is to sit in it for five or ten minutes to allow my spine to reposition for the day. I can't say enough good things about this chair. It has truly been a lifesaver for someone who has had back issues since she was a child. I didn't think I would use the lift feature since I'm not so old or decrepit that I need it, but I've found that it actually takes the strain off my weak spine, so now I use it all the time. Do not hesitate to buy this chair if you have back issues: after a little tweaking to make it fit you perfectly, you will be very happy that you did. Very happy, indeed.

- better than your own bed! Review by dianejk
The first time I perchased a lift-chair was in 1992 after returning from a month-long stay in the hospital recovering from a serious car accident. It literally gave me the mobility to get in and out of a seated position without assisance until I could reach my crutches. After a full recovery I only used the chair if I was not feeling well (stomach ache, headach, or indigestion). In 2003 I suffered a hiatal hernia and could no longer lie in a traditional bed and used my lift-chair to sleep on. While visiting my daughter in Florida, who had recently purchased the Brisa model of the Relax the Back lift chair for her Vertigo condition, I slept on it for two nights. It was unbelievable! It was the best night's sleep I have had in years! The main differences I noticed from the Brisa model and the traditional lift chair is that the lift chair's foot rest is not separated from the chair part which elminates the gap between the leg rest and the seat part, making it much easier on the legs. The chair also has more positions and can lie flatter than an ordinary lift chair. I just love it and would definitely recommend that everyone have one. It is sooo much better than a recliner and much better than a regular lift chair.
Although the chair seems a little pricey, I have to say, "How much is a good night's sleep worth?" I asked my doctors if it would be okay to use the lift chair as an alternative to a traditional bed and they all said it was fine. Now, if we could just find it on sale!
