I have a sister that is 29 and weighs 27 pounds. I need something that I can push like a stroller that she can recline in since she is so weak and twisted that she cannot sit up. Do you have anything like that or know of anything? thanks, ~Wanda
Answer: For some conditions, positioning aids or a postural support system might be the answer, because they’re designed to help people sit upright in their chairs without falling or slipping. If positioning or posture support isn’t an option in your sister’s case, or if you want to use positioning aids along with a recline feature, there are several options to choose from. Several companies make reclining manual wheelchairs, including Invacare, Sentra, Everest & Jennings, Millennium and Karman. Convaid specializes in stroller-type folding chairs - their line of wheelchairs includes a reclining model as well as chairs with advanced seating systems and tilt-positioning - and Dreamer Design makes Axiom Mobility strollers for adults. Reclining power wheelchairs are also available. In addition wheelchair positioning belts are also an option for stability in a wheelchair.
