Action 3 Comfort Recline – Manual Wheelchair

USERS RATING:
(Based on the users needs, lifestyle and preferences.)

Wheelchair Description:
Comes with lots of customisable options, including reclining backrest and leg raisers. I also have a cushion with increased back support.

Source of Wheelchair:
Surrey & Sussex Care Centres

Diagnosis:
Severe M.E & Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTs)

Personal Opinion:
This wheelchair is super comfortable and enables me to spend far longer out of bed than if using a standard wheelchair. The backrest doesn’t go completely flat once reclined, however, it is significantly more comfortable/supportive than other chairs on the market that do.

One downside is that I’ve broken the reclining mechanism 3 times just by hanging bags on the back, something I need to do but it just can’t cope with it! Sadly it also weighs a lot due to the various functions, but I’m told it’s one of the lightest reclining chairs on the market. It also comes apart to make it easier to get in and out of the car, it’s just a bit tricky to put together – although this does mean that a wheelchair accessible car isn’t needed.

My local wheelchair services are useless, so I purchased this wheelchair through Surrey & Sussex Care Centres as they accepted the NHS wheelchair voucher.
