Reclinable Wheelchair Apparatus is a fancy way of saying “Reclining Wheelchair”. The most important feature of a reclining chair is that it allows the user to operate the mobility device in order to be able to raise the backrest and leg rests can be lowered as well.

Reclining wheelchairs were invented sometime in the year 1985. The reason for its invention was because users were having issues with transferring in and out of their wheelchair.

Reclining Features

If the reclining chair is placed next to a bed that accommodates the height of the chair, it can be used to transfer the individual from the wheelchair onto the bed without being labor intensive and costly.

Recline chairs allow the companion or caretaker to avoid having to use intensive strength and weight bearing while transferring the user.

These types of wheelchairs are considered “convertible” because it allows the user to go from a normal seating position, to a recliner position having an extended horizontal surface.


Recliner chairs provide great improvements over conventional wheelchairs when it comes to comfort. User situations where a reclining wheelchair would come in handy include lying down, reclining underneath a desk, and eating from food trays.
