Using an electric chair recliner on Shabbos

Question:

Can I use an electric chair recliner on Shabbos if I do not use the electric controls?

 

Answer:

Hello,

The chair is not muktza, and one may sit on it on Shabbos. Although the chair uses electricity, the main use of the chair is for sitting.  It is however recommended that the controls be taped up, so that we don’t accidentally use the controls on Shabbos.

Best wishes
