Larger Clayton Lift Chair
Received my special order lift chair today and boy was I shocked. Having owned this same chair for seven years I expected the same size and quality. This chair replaced the one I owned and the base is wooden instead of the heavy duty steel frame. The size of the chair is about six inches shorter and the arms are smaller plus the seat area is smaller. If you are 5ft 9 or taller, this chair will not be comfortable for you. The fabric I selected is beautiful but itches. The leg extension is shorter and leaves my feet hanging off. With arthritis in the ankles it is imperative that I'm able to pull my legs up from time to time and the way the new design works you can't do it. The vibrator is awesome in the chair but can't even begin to offset the negatives. This will be my last lift chair purchase from LaZBoy unless these negatives are changed. The old design is hands down the best ever Wish I had my old comfortable chair back!

Absolute Necessity - Emergency Purchase
OMG! I received my chair about 5 hours ago, and I love it. I have three herniated dics, spinal stenosis, possible MS...add to this the fact that I 'sprained' my MCL knee ligament 7 days ago. I'm having to wear a leg immobilizer for weeks. My doc seems to think it's no big deal for somebody who weighs 250 lbs to get up out of a chair with one good leg. In the past week, I've totally hurt my good knee and wrecked my back having to lunge and pull myself up with one leg while the bad leg remains straight out. I bought this chair because I was desperate to not kill myself or my back any longer. I only wish I had this chair 6 months ago when I shattered my shoulder and needed shoulder replacement surgery. I spent about 3 months unable to pull the handle to raise my old recliner footrest due to my injury. Yep, I've had a bad year. But this chair is a blessing for anybody with disabilties in their arms, back or legs. The added heat feature is wonderful as my rear end aches so bad from having to sit all day. I am thrilled with my purchase.

Very Timely Purchase & More!
I was having backache problems & the over-sized Clayton Recliner / Power Lift-Chair, with the heat & massage options that we purchased in December of 2010, has been a blessing in disguise for me! I'm a big guy, weighing over 300 pounds & this chair with the back-up power has served me extremely well. In fact, It's been my bed for the last 5 months, as I'm being treated for a Cellulitise infection in my right leg. Leg elevation is critical for my treatment & La-Z-Boy's quality in the "Clayton" model has met every challenge for my comfort, convenience & health issues! I'm looking forward to this La-Z-Boy chair lasting as long as our 22 year La-Z-Boy Rocker/Recliner that we just moved to our family room! We're so impressed with La-Z-Boy, that we have just ordered a power recliner for my wife & a double recliner sofa for our living room. Thanks La-Z-Boy for your well-made, fine quality & reliable line of versatile products!
