Buying Guide

Over recliner tables offer comfort and convenience for patients, the disabled, and the elderly to allow them to carry on a number of activities from a recliner, a chair with an armrest, and/or a bed. They are made with sturdy, reliable construction, and they come in a wide range of designs, features, colors, and finishes to suit the individual needs of users.

To ensure you get the best one for you or your loved one, here are the crucial aspects that require consideration:

  • Pin and Ratchet - This type of mechanism makes use of a pin in keeping the table at a specific height. With this style of adjustment, you would not adjust the table’s height too often. It's designed to keep a desk at the height that makes you comfortable while sitting and working.
  • Crank - A crank system can be seen with most economical over recliner tables as it only makes use of a lever that needs manual rotation in raising and lowering the height of the table. Most times, a table’s crank is removable, so you don’t have to concern yourself of a knob protruding and getting in the way. The problem with the system is a person's arm will get tired from rotating the crank if adjustments are made often.
  • Electric - An electric system offers smooth height adjustments. However, the adjustment is slow; about two inches a second. The electric type has a motor so it may get a bit noisy.
  • Gas Cylinder - A gas cylinder over recliner table offers the fastest mechanism for height adjustment. Although presets are not an option, the desk does not make use of electricity which means you don’t have to find a plug nearby. It has the technology that’s used with most office chairs. A pneumatic cylinder supplies the push that is needed in raising and lowering the desk. It is pretty quiet but it’s less precise with the height adjustments compared to other options.
  • Counterbalance - The counterbalance adjustment system is the most expensive, so it makes an over recliner table costlier. However, the mechanism is the most innovative; it works through springs that are adjustable to move the table upwards and downwards quickly and seamlessly. When you see it in action, it is like a knife cutting through butter! What's more, a counterbalance table is totally silent. It is, however, heavier compared to other desks with other types of mechanisms.

If you don’t want an over recliner table that has a height adjustment feature, you can opt for fixed ones. However, you need to make sure that it’s at least 29” tall. It shouldn’t be taller than 34” to offer a comfortable use to the user. As for knee clearance, it must extend for 19 inches or more under the table.

When it comes to over recliner tables, you must take special note of a table’s dimensions. If you can’t find a table that matches with the recliner that you have, then try looking into a custom table.
