The lazy chair adjustments allow you to adjust the tension on the reclining mechanism to respond better to your individual size and strength. If you find it difficult to push the back or pull the lever to a stand position then you may want to ease the tension. If you are higher or more severe then you may want to increase the tension of the supine mechanism.
