A reclining wheelchair is a type of mobility device similar to a standard wheelchair except that its back can be reclined. It is designed for people with limited mobility as a result of illness, injury, or disability who find sitting in an upright position to be uncomfortable or impossible. A reclining wheelchair allows several key parts of the device, including the foot rests and backrest, to be adjusted to accommodate various needs and positions. A high-back reclining wheelchair typically has a higher than standard chair-back with an independent reclining functionality allowing the user to recline from a 90 degree sitting position to a 180 degree position, enhancing re positioning and comfort while also helping to improve blood flow. High-back reclining wheelchairs can assist individuals who need extra support due to poor trunk stability, respiratory difficulties, severe multiple sclerosis, severe arthritis, quadriplegia, or muscular dystrophy.
A reclining wheelchair is similar to a light weight wheelchair but has the added feature of being able to recline the backrest. Aurora 4 Wheelchair have a high back that reclines independently of the rest of the air, allowing the user to lie back in a more comfortable position. They are commonly used by elderly who are using a wheelchair as their primary means of mobility. This can be for comfort and, when combined with a tilt feature, can reduce the risk of skin breakdown (ex. pressure/bed sores).
