Shopping around for a new wheelchair can be a daunting task. There are so many design and brand options to choose from that you may feel a bit lost. The good news is that the following information will help you learn more about the best reclining tilt-in-space wheelchair for 2021 so you walk away satisfied with your purchase.

A wheelchair with the power tilt (tilt-in-space) feature allows the whole chair to tilt up to 30 or 60 degrees, depending on the model, while maintaining your hip and knee angles at 90 degrees. In most cases, this is done with the touch of a button, allowing you to move your body independently. You may want to consider this type of wheelchair if you or a family member is dealing with neuromuscular or progressive diseases.

Patients who need a lot of assistance to get into and out of bed can pose a great deal of injury risk to both patients and caregivers. Tilt-in-space wheelchairs help to greatly reduce this risk since the caregiver can tilt the client fully. It minimizes the effort required for positioning the patient. Changing positions throughout the day impacts other body functions as well. Tilt and recline can also aid in the activity of eating.

The Flyer comes standard with -5 degrees to +40 degrees of tilt and 30 degrees of back angle adjustment, offers optional recline, and a large selection of options and accessories to achieve ideal positioning and support.

The modular design allows for easy removal of the seating module from the mobility base for simple lifting and more compact transport. The Flyer seating module has the ability to grow in width from 12 to 16″, and the seat depth can grow 4, for a total seat depth range of 11 to 21.

Benefits of A Reclining Tilt-In-Space Wheelchair

A tilt-in-space wheelchair provides added comfort by allowing a caregiver to adjust the way the user can sit within the system. This type of adjustment relieves pressure from the lower back and redistributes it to different areas of the body. A reclining tilt-in-space wheelchair can also give the head, neck, and trunk a much-needed break, too, which is especially important for users that spend a prolonged period of time in their wheelchair.

Tilt-in-space can actually provide even more comfort than a reclining system only because it helps maintain posture and body alignment. Tilt-in-space systems prevent sheer entirely, too, so you don’t have to worry about skin irritation. It can also inhibit extensor muscle spasms.

Tilt-in-space wheelchairs (manual or powered) offer a variety of benefits to certain consumers, which cannot be obtained by a traditional seating system without the ability to force a weight shift by tilting. In addition to the physical upsides, there are also physiological benefits of a tilt-in-space wheelchair. People move, on average, 30 times in an hour when they are seated. However, those who have cerebral palsy, muscle diseases, and head and/or spinal cord injuries may not have the strength or ability to change their body position and provide relief to the pressure points. They must reposition themselves at least once every 15 minutes to prevent the development of ulcers. If a person sits for too long without changing his/her positions, even the best cushions would not be of any help. A pressure of 32 millimeters of mercury is sufficient to constrict a capillary. Tilt-in-space wheelchairs allow users or caregivers to change their position, enabling them to shift pressure away from one point and redistribute it over a larger surface area. Also, tilting enhances the patient’s feeling of security as the possibility of falling forward from the sitting position often makes him/her very apprehensive.

Additionally, tilt ensures stability, especially when going down a slope. Tilting helps prevent a patient from falling forward when he/she is in a sitting position. It is also beneficial in passively correcting scoliosis (lateral curvature of the spine) and kyphosis (convex curvature of the spine).

Finally, Patients who experience the least discomfort when sitting are often more productive. Users who are able to spend more time in their wheelchair and out of their bed will have more opportunities for participating in day-to-day life. The same goes for others in the household, greatly improving their quality of life.

It can also be easier to transfer someone into and out of a reclining tilt-in space wheelchair. In addition, if the person using the chair uses a tray or something similar for work, eating, or therapy, a reclining chair will allow them to shift position without disturbing their setup.

Many reclining seating systems also allow the user to recline a full 90 degrees and lie flat, which can come in handy when a nap in a wheelchair is necessary.
