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.

Flexible Back Positioning:
Reclining chairs offer unlimited back re-positioning for more patient comfort, better blood circulation, and to aid in sleeping. 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.

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.
