Reclining Back Wheelchairs

If you find yourself spending a large amount of time restricted to a seated position due to illness or weakness, a reclining wheelchair may provide the comfort and support you’ve been needing. When you sit for long periods of time, it can place a great deal of stress on your spine, causing discomfort and even pain. These reclining back wheelchairs provide expertly-engineered features such as hydraulic reclining mechanisms, swing-away elevating leg rests, and headrest extensions with cushioned head immobilizers for the maximum level of safety, comfort, and functionality.

We offer two types of wheelchairs with reclining backs. The first type is the standard model, where only the back tilts. The second is the recline tilt, where the entire chair is allowed to tilt up to 180 degrees while maintaining a 90-degree angle for the hips and knees. This second option allows for total body independence and is particularly beneficial for patients with muscular dystrophy. At times it might be necessary to use both tilt and recline; this allows the angle between your back and seat to raise your legs above your heart, which offers many health benefits to sedentary patients.

Products such as the Sentra Full Reclining STD from Drive Medical offer advanced technology to keep the operator secure and comfy. Wheel locks prevent the device from slipping or sliding on sloped or uneven surfaces, and composite Mag-style wheels are both lightweight and durable, requiring very little maintenance. The chair offers 180-degree adjustment for the best possible mobility and maneuverability, making it perfect for use as a mobile travel vehicle or as a piece of furniture in which to rest and relax. Fully operable via handle levers, this model is a great choice for both occasional and more permanent use—it can be easily folded away for storage or transport, and it comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty so you can be assured you’re investing in a quality product.

We have many other models in our range, including the Silver Sport Full Reclining option that helps with leg positioning, supports the upper body, and decreases swelling in the feet, ankles, and calves. If you want full control over your tilt and mobility when it comes to using a reclining wheelchair, you need look no further than the affordable, high-quality items available in our online catalog.
