Children's manual wheelchairs with tilt-in-space mechanism

Wheelchairs in this section all have a tilting seat unit, that is the seat to backrest angle remains fixed, but they can be tilted backwards together. There are certain circumstances when it is necessary to tilt a person back in a chair for example to relieve pressure or provide a more relaxing sitting position. However, careful consideration must be given to the effects of doing this. Tilting a person back in a chair can reduce the ability of that person to sit and carry out activities such as eating, using communication devices and other functions. The person's line of vision is altered so that they look upwards rather than horizontally. It is also much harder to swallow in a tilted position. View relevant references ‣
