Being a Baby Boomer has had a lot of benefits in life. But as my generation gets older, some of the things we used to be able to do gets harder to do. That is why I decided to do a series on electric lift chairs.

I think that as you do your research on which lift chair might be the best for you or your loved one, you will see why we decided to do this Catnapper Power Lift Recliner review. This lift chair is our favorite!

Our Review

This Catnapper chair has a few unique features that makes it stand out on the market. First of all, its dual motor allows it to recline back without having to lift the leg rest cushion, which is not very common!

In addition to that, it is made with comfort gel that helps relieve pressure points on the body. Moreover, this chair has a powered lift for those who need help when standing up, and the back reclines to almost flat! 170° is definitely among the flattest you can get.

The upholstery is made from vinyl or suede and you can buy it in 3 different colors.

The chair is made in the U.S.A and will need assembly but nothing you cannot do on your own. Lastly, it comes with a wired controller that can be saved on the right side of the chair, in a multi-use pocket.


  • The comfort gel technology is very interesting and helps relieve pressure points on the body, which is quite useful for those with backaches or hip pain.
  • The back rest reclines almost fully, to 170° making it very comfortable to sleep in.
  • The dual motor function allows you to recline your back without lifting your feet or vice versa, which is quite helpful for those who like to watch TV straight up.


  • The material of the chair is slippery and can make you slide down if your feet are not touching the ground.
  • Also, some users have said that the material is very thin and does not feel high-quality.

Bottom Line

The Catnapper could definitely be a good choice for those who have a budget big enough, it being one of the most expensive lift chairs we have reviewed. The comfort gel technology is certainly great, as is the dual motor function, but the seat is can be slippery and may not keep you in place, and that is something that needs to be considered.

Another good thing about this power lift chair is that it reclines almost fully, which is useful if you are planning on sleeping on it. However, remember to lift your legs or you might slide down!
