A Reclining Wheelchair greatly improves the comfort factor of being in a wheelchair. Many scenarios such as lying down, reclining under desks, and eating with food trays are much easier.

  • Pressure Sores– The ability to recline helps distribute body weight and reduce pressure sores.
  • Edema and Circulation– Wheelchair users who have edema in their legs benefit greatly from reclining. It helps improve circulation and the natural flow of nutrients throughout the body.
  • Transfers– Transferring from a reclining wheelchair to a bed is much easier than the standard wheelchair. The wheelchair can be adjusted to the same elevation as the bed; the user only needs to slide from the chair to the bed.
  • Hypotension– Hypotension is the medical term for low blood pressure. In many cases, elevating the feet reduces the symptoms of low blood pressure.
  • Bladder and Bowel function– Reclining is also beneficial for bladder and bowel function. Certain forms of catheterization are also easier in a reclined position.
  • Comes standard with a pair of elevating leg rest.
  • weight capacity up to 300lbs.

Sanitization:

  • The equipment is first cleaned with a dry soft cloth and air spray to get rid of all the debris and dust particles.
  • Then a 75% alcohol based disinfectant is sprayed throughout the equipment especially at the point of contact like the wheelchair arm rest and wheel rims or the Knee walker handles and seats. We let the disinfectant sit for 15 minutes  before the wipe down.
  • The mobility equipment seats are cleaned with brushes to make sure all dust, lint, hair and debris are taken out and then sprayed on with the 75% alcohol based disinfectant.

 What are thebenefits of using a wheelchair?

Wheelchairs are more than just mobility aids - they're tools for independence! Here
are a few benefits:

i. They allow users to participate in daily activities, get to work or school, and explore their surroundings.

iii. They are conveniently lightweight, at only 16 lbs, and fold snug for easy transport via land, air, sea and rail.

 How do I properly care for my wheelchair?

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your wheelchair rolling smoothly and safely.

This includes routine cleaning to remove dirt and debris, checking tire pressure and inflation, and making adjustments to brakes and other components as needed.

Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific care guidelines and recommended service intervals.

How do I safely get in and out of my wheelchair?

Safe transfers are essential to prevent injuries.

There are proper techniques for transferring from a wheelchair to a bed, chair, or other surfaces. These techniques minimize strain and risk of falls.

Here are a few general and safe tips of getting in and out of a wheelchair:

• Lock the brakes: Before transferring, always lock the wheelchair's brakes to prevent it from rolling.

• Clear the area: Make sure there are no obstacles in the way that could cause you to trip or lose balance.

• Swing away footrests (if applicable): If your wheelchair has removable footrests, swing them out of the way to avoid tripping.

• Ask for help if needed: Don't hesitate to ask for assistance from a caregiver or bystander if you need help transferring.

Transferring from a Bed or Chair to a Wheelchair:

• Scoot to the edge: Sit on the edge of the bed or chair you're transferring from.

• Lean forward: Shift your weight forward slightly for better leverage.

• Use the armrests: Push yourself up using the armrests of the wheelchair or the chair you're transferring from.

Transferring from a Wheelchair to a Bed or Chair:

• Reverse the steps: Follow the steps above in reverse order.

• Slide or scoot: Once you're seated on the edge of the bed or chair, carefully slide or scoot back until you're fully settled.

Additional Considerations:

• Strength and Balance: The safest method for transferring depends on your individual strength and balance.

• Transfer Techniques: There are various transfer techniques, such as the sliding transfer or the pivot transfer. If you're unsure which is best for you, consult with an occupational therapist.

• Transfer Aids: Transfer aids like transfer boards or gait belts can provide additional support and stability during transfers.

How can I improve my posture while using a wheelchair?

Maintaining good posture while using a wheelchair promotes comfort, prevents pain, and reduces the risk of pressure sores.

Seating pressure relief cushions can help distribute weight evenly and minimize pressure points.

Proper positioning with backrests and headrests that offer good support is also crucial.

Talk to a healthcare professional for advice on finding the right seating system and ensuring proper posture while using your wheelchair.

What are some common wheelchair repairs?

Just like any other piece of equipment, wheelchairs may require occasional repairs.

Adjusting brakes to ensure proper stopping power might be needed from time to time.
