Specifying Recliners for Healthcare and Care Environments

Posted On: August 30, 2018 Categorised in:

Specifying recliners for Healthcare and Care environments can be a difficult choice when deciding between the different models and actions available. Models from the Knightsbridge recliner collection include 6 action types to cover a wide range of patient needs:


A manual push on the back provides a simultaneous footrest and back movement

Tilt In Space

The tilt in space mechanism allows you to independently adjust the position of the backrest and to tilt the chair backwards and forwards moving the leg rest at the same time avoiding shearing of the back and the hips. Once the leg rest is all the way down it will rise to aid in standing.

Single Motor

The seat and back of this particular mechanism has a fixed angle that doesn’t change during the recliner movement as the seat tilts with the back as the footrest is extending allowing the user to have full and total support avoiding shearing of the back and hips.

Dual Motor

The Dual mechanism has two motors that will independently drive the back and foot rest but will still bring the chair to a near standing position. The user has total control of the exact movement to the angle of recline on the backrest and the footrest i.e. the footrest can be elevated and the back remain in an upright position. The control is totally independent of each other enabling the user to achieve their own individual position of comfort for relaxing.

4 Motor System

This mechanism has been designed and built to cope with weights of up to 70 stone and severe fluid retention. The rise/recline movement is controlled by individual motors with the seat lift having 2-motors that are synchronised to ensure user comfort and safety.


The Trendelenberg action allows the recliner to move with independent back and footrest movement to lay flat on the back (supine position)
