Tilt Manual Wheelchairs are similar to Reclining Manual Wheelchairs, except they do not recline all the way. The tilt mechanism increases safety due to gravity naturally pulling the user as far back as possible. This greatly reduces the risk of the user falling or slipping out of the chair and increases stability. Tilt Manual Wheelchairs also have many other benefits for the user. Besides the ultimate goal of increased comfort, the user will experience relief from pressure. Friction and shear injuries resulting in pressure sores will become a thing of the past due to the convenience of repositioning the user with the tilt mechanism. The user will also feel less fatigued and experience reduced edema due to the tilt mechanism.
