Special chair

Does anyone have an idea how I can make  a bar stool height slim chair that will elevate my feet and allows the back to slightly recline safely?  Something like an elevated barber chair, without the width and bulk.  Arm rest too! So I don't fall off. I'm thinking of recycling bits and pieces of separate chairs.  But which?  Don't mind manual operation, but electric would be snazzy!  Gotta get my feet up for my heart condition
