A bariatric recliner is a special kind of chair for people that weigh over 400 pounds. It usually has a weight limit of 500 pounds to 1500 pounds. These chairs are designed to accommodate a large person, who would otherwise not be able to fit in a normal chair. These chairs are available in many different styles, such as rockers, swivel rockers, and captain’s chairs. These recliners are designed to be wider, longer, and heavier than traditional recliners so that they’re far more comfortable and supportive for larger people.
