Secure the Numerous Benefits of Tilt and Recline

Secure the Numerous Benefits of Tilt and Recline

Tilt allows the client to change their position and shift weight from the pelvis to the back, decreasing the strain of gravity. For children with limited pelvic, thoracic, or head control, this change in positioning helps to reduce the potential of developing postural deviations later in life.

Recline opens up the seat-to-back angle which allows a change in position or posture. Changing seating angles via tilt and/or recline may assist with feeding, digestion, respiratory function, and visual orientation.

The Sphynx's recline can be quickly adjusted 85° to 100° whenever needed.

The Sphynx's static tilt setting can be adjusted to 10°, 20°, or 30° to best accommodate the child's needs.
