Reclinable Wheelchairs are specially designed to allow a person to comfortably recline at incremental angles safely and comfortably. Typically used for accommodation of severe hip extension contractures, orthostatic hypotension, and pressure re-distribution for prevention of skin breakdown.
Recliner Wheelchairs work better with Elevating Legrests (ELRs); the user’s legs and feet can also be re-positioned for maximum comfort and health benefits. The “ELRs” are optional on some models and standard on others. Be sure to ask about which type of ELR is best suitable for your seating and position needs.
On some wheelchairs this is an option so be sure to check the options and accessories when purchasing. Tilt in Space wheelchairs are often considered for those who seek the best product in a reclining wheelchair or tilt in space wheelchair.
