Single Motor - Tilt in Space
The key features of our Tilt in Space rise and recline mechanism:
- The single motor mechanism means that the back reclines at the same
time as the leg rest elevates. The Tilt in Space movement ensures that a
constant back angle of 90º is maintained at all times as the chair reclines.
- As the seat tilts backwards into its reclining position the pressure
will transfer from the lower knee, to the upper thigh and then to the
- When the seat is in the rise position it tilts transferring your
weight to your knees taking away the pressure from your hips and
allowing you to walk away easily from the chair.
- In the reclined position the leg rest rises to a high position to aid circulation.
- Popular with Occupational Therapists the Tilt in Space movement offers greater posture management.
- There is no ‘back shearing' (clothes movement) experienced with this mechanism.
- The easy to use handset features only two buttons.
