Reclining Wheelchair With Headrest

Reclining Wheelchair is similar to a light weight wheelchair but has the added feature of being able to recline the backrest.Reclining  can be for comfort and, when combined with a tilt feature, can reduce the risk of skin breakdown (ex. pressure/bed sores).

Reclining Wheelchair are commonly used by elderly who are using a wheelchair as their primary means of mobility.Maybe they have had a stroke and are not able to comfortably sit in a standard wheelchair. They need additional support to be both comfortable and safe.Maybe they have been using a light weight wheelchair for several years and are now beginning to have issues with skin breakdown (such as pressure sores/bed sores).

They have a higher back and usually a head rest to support the senior while reclined.

The leg rests may also have additional calf support.

Reclining Wheelchair (and tilt if needed) is usually controlled by a hand brake type system on the handles at the back of the chair.

They are also made to accommodate more specialized seating and positioning accessories - more advanced cushions, backrests and head rests.

They are also beneficial for elderly that like to be out and about with others but become drowsy during the day. Being able to tilt and recline allows them to be more comfortable for short periods without having to lay down in bed.
