Reclining wheelchairs offer users the unique option to recline the backrest for increased comfort. These wheelchairs may be ideal for anyone looking for a more comfortable position. In some cases, wheelchair users may not be able to sit up for sustained periods of time. The reclining wheelchair offers a practical solution to this issue.

Reclining wheelchairs provide additional support – the backrest and headrest are extended to provide the support needed when the backrest is reclined. Some reclining wheelchairs have ergonomically designed headrests which are ideal for patients who have little strength or control of their bodies.

Using the recline feature of a wheelchair can help to increase comfort by providing a change of position. Reclining may provide relief to someone who is suffering from pressure sores or muscle cramps. Reclining the backrest can also make for a more comfortable position for someone who has suffered a stroke and who cannot sit up comfortably.

Reclining wheelchairs are designed so that they can be user-propelled or pushed by a caregiver. The recline feature is controlled by a hand control on the back of the wheelchair. These wheelchairs are not ideal for transport, due to the extended length of the backrests and headrests. However, they are excellent for use around the house or in a health care setting.

Armrests are standard on reclining wheelchairs, and help to keep the patient properly and securely positioned. Most reclining wheelchairs feature footrests and leg support for a more comfortable user experience.

If you're on a budget, then reclining wheelchairs have a definite advantage over tilt in space wheelchairs because of their affordability. Reclining wheelchairs are available for very affordable prices, but you can choose from upper level models, as well.
