Reclining strollers differ from tilt-in-space strollers. In a reclining stroller the back of the seat moves back opening the angle of bending (flexion) at the hip. This feature is very common on commercial strollers. Parents and caregivers find it convenient because it allows for easier diaper changes, personal medical care and even napping. Additionally, strollers that recline are great for resting the head, neck, and trunk when postural muscles become fatigued from upright sitting. Reclining the back also provides pressure relief.
