It allows for a level of independence that can make a person with disabilities feel better.

6. Push-Back Recliners

This type of chair is one that has no levers, instead you must use the power of your own body to push the chair back to recline. This definitely takes a little more effort and you need to make sure that you have that power to recline the chair. If you do not want that extra effort, this chair might not be for you. 

7. Swivel Recliners

This type of chair has a circular base that allows it to swivel in nearly a full circle, sometimes even a full circle. This will allow you to watch television one moment, then swivel to have a conversation in a different direction a moment later.
