Motor options - Single or Dual?

This issue of motor options usually is one of the first questions broached when starting to investigate and navigate the large range of lift chair options available. The motor, as stated above, is the control box allowing the lift feature in lift chairs. So. What are the options?  In simple terms: the more motors the chair has, the more options you have.

Single Motor
A single motor lift chairs will allow your legs to raise, then it will recline your backrest. When you sit up in the chair, the back will sit you up, then the footrest will pack away, and if you keep your finger on the button you will rise to your feet. 

Dual Motor
A dual motor lift chairs will allow you to bring your feet up for a relaxed afternoon with a book. You can also bring your feet up and recline your back for a nice relaxing afternoon nap. Because you can move the backrest and leg rest independently, you can achieve many more positions than with a single motor lift chair, and you are not restricted to the order you need to do things.
