Reclining wheelchairs have a few serious characteristics that need to be taken when using it:
- When a user is reclined part way, gravity will cause their bottoms try to slide forward out of the wheelchair. If the sliding happens they are likely to fall out onto the floor, if the seating prevents them from sliding, pressure is created called shearing which is very uncomfortable and will eventually lead to skin breakdown.
- Also, when reclining, the user's back will slide down the back upholstery. This effect has two inherent problems. The first being that no molded or contoured back rest can be used as the user will constantly be shifted out of position. The second is when the user is moved back to a upright position and shearing is once again created because gravity is trying to prevent the user's back from sliding up the back upholstery.
- Elevating legrests are almost always ordered with reclining wheelchairs which add to the cost and weight of the wheelchair. Unless the legs are elevated most users find being reclined quite uncomfortable.
- Reclining wheelchairs tend to be heavy and hard for a user to self-propel.
- The final drawback is that is care giver must control the recline function on manual reclining wheelchairs.
