Reclining wheelchairs are available in standard folding frames with extended head supports and seat widths up to 24" wide. The recline mechanism is attendant operated with levers much like a bicycle brake lever. The levers operate hydraulic (pump) mechanisms for a smooth adjustment. Using this reclining mechanism, the chair back can easily and frequently be positioned to any angle. Flexible Back Positioning:
The Reclining chairs offer unlimited back re-positioning for more patient comfort, better blood circulation, and to aid in sleeping. Work best with ELRs: Recliner Wheelchairs work better with Elevating Legrest so patients legs and feet can also be re-positioned for maximum comfort. On some chairs this is an option so be sure to check the options and accessories when purchasing a Recliner Chair. Only the Back moves: On recliner wheelchairs the back reclines but the seat bottom stays in-place.
