Abstract

See full text

A wheeled reclining chair is provided which includes an improved swing link assembly for permitting the seat back assembly to recline approximately 180.degree. relative to the seat assembly to provide a substantially flat occupant-supporting surface such that the seat back provides a rearwardly extending cantilevered surface and the leg rest assembly provides a forwardly extending cantilevered surface from the chair frame assembly. The swing linkage assembly includes a pair of front slide assemblies and a pair of rear swing linkage mechanisms which suspend and operably couple the seat assembly to the chair frame for providing the desired reclining motion. A mobile base assembly having front and rear wheels which can be removed from the base assembly is also provided. The wheeled reclining chair includes a tilt linkage mechanism for tilting the chair frame relative to the mobile base assembly. The mobile base assembly optionally includes brakes which can be actuated either by the seat occupant, or by a care giver for preventing movement of the wheeled health care chair.
