The Invacare Recliner
This chair is a far cry from the standard wheelchairs that are provided in most nursing homes today. It is well designed, sturdy and comfortable. It can be positioned in three different ways, reclining, erect,with legs down for sitting at the table, or elevated for resting. With the flip of a lever, the positions can be changed. It is easily maneuverable. It has a tray for activities.
The patient no longer has to spend hours strapped and dozing uncomfortably in a regular wheelchair, or spend the day lying in bed and staring at the ceiling. The patient can eat, rest, watch tv, socialize, and be anywhere in the facility, all in one chair. The chair is manufactured with fire-retardant foam and glue, and meets the safety requirements of fire departments.
