Special Needs Chairs that Tilt and Recline
When shopping for adaptive seating, you'll often come across two different options - reclining seating and tilt-in-space seating. Both of these special needs chair types allow for users to sit upright and in a lie-back position, but their mechanisms differ. With tilt-in-space chairs, the hip angle remains the same but the seat itself tips back. With recline seating, the hip angle changes, allowing the user to lie back for sleeping or personal care. Both types of special needs chairs have their unique advantages and disadvantages, so sometimes you need both options.
