  • Independent back rest recline - adjusted from a lever on the push handle the back can be reclined in a range of restful positions, 95 to 120 degree range.
  • Seat angle adjustment - with a range of 15 degrees, for comfort and to reduce the risk of an individual falling out of the chair due to severe involuntary movements.
  • Seat depth adjustment - changeable seat depth to fit the chair to the client using the lever on the back of the chair.
  • Sliding footplate with a central castor that provides for maximum stability.
  • A choice of four removable pressure management seat cushions.
  • A choice of six removable and interchangeable back cushion styles for different, and changing, postural needs.
