Lightweight Reclining Wheelchairs with Headrests
The selection of recliner wheelchairs offered here at PHC features some of the best known names in the industry, including Karman, Invacare, Everest & Jennings (E&J), Drive, ProBasics and more. The reclining functionality of these high-back reclining manual wheelchairs allows for easy user repositioning, which improves blood circulation and comfort while sitting for long periods of time.
The E&J Advantage is an affordable choice for a high-back reclining
transport wheelchair, with an exceptional discount as well. Where price
is a major factor, the Advantage is definitely the best reclining
wheelchair available. It has a built-in headrest, anti-tippers, full
reclining capability and a 300-lb capacity. Your choice of lightweight
reclining wheelchairs with headrests also extends to the ProBasics unit,
being offered at a near 75% markdown.
Reclining Wheelchairs with Head Support
All Reclining Chairs have head support. The head support section is removable to save space (height) when folding or transporting the chair.
Flexible seating allows addition of cushions:
Anyone using a Reclining Wheelchair will benefit from using a cushion such as the
Comfort Company Support Pro Cushion with Gel. Nylon and Vinyl Seat Slings, as found on these Recliner Wheelchairs become uncomfortable within a short period time and do nothing to protect or treat skin integrity. The Comfort Company also makes a fully padded adjustable back that works well on recliners for added comfort.
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:
Reclining chairs offer unlimited back re-positioning for more patient comfort, better blood circulation, and to aid in sleeping.
Works best with Elevating Leg Rests:
Recliner chairs should use Elevating Leg Rests so the 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 section of each product page.
Only the Back moves:
On recliner wheelchairs the back reclines but the seat bottom stays in-place.
