Tilting a wheelchair versus Reclining a wheelchair; which one is more comfortable? The answer to that question should be left for the patient or user to decide, as we all define comfort in our own way.
However, it remains a fact that using a tilt wheelchair offers proven pressure relief on the rear as shown in the pressure charts. This is accomplished through the redistribution of the pressure to the user’s back, shifting it away from the posterior locations. The user’s center of gravity is redistributed by rotating the axis where the person sits. A reclining wheelchair provides a sole pivot point from the unit’s back cane to its seating frame. Our VIP-515 features the ONLY lightweight folding adult tilt in space feature in the world starting at mere 34 lbs in weight.
Shown below are two categories provided for your review. The VIP-515 Tilt Wheelchair models (left as shown) and MVP-502 V-Shape Reclining Wheelchair (right as shown). Both feature patented components within the wheelchair design demonstrating comfort and the highest level of craftsmanship, available in a Tilt or Recline option with a choice between transport or manual propel for your mobility needs. Please consult your local Durable Medical Equipment provider or doctor to find out which one is the most appropriate for you or your loved ones.
