Abstract

See full text

A health care reclining chair is disclosed which includes a rigid chair frame assembly. An improved deep recline swing linkage assembly is disclosed which permits the seat back of the chair to be fully reclined into a substantially flat position relative to the seat and operably suspends the seat assembly for reclining motion within the chair frame assembly. A mobile base assembly is interdisposed between the chair frame assembly and the floor to permit the reclining chair to be used for transportation of a seated occupant. Furthermore, a tilting mechanism is operably coupled between the mobile base assembly and the chair frame assembly for permitting tilting movement of the chair frame relative to the base assembly. The health care reclining chair of the present invention may further be adapted to include a leg rest assembly positionable between a retracted position and an extended position for providing further comfort. In this manner, the seat assembly provides a substantially flat occupant-supporting surface which is generally parallel to the floor surface to define a bed-like surface which may be further oriented to place a head rest portion of the seat back slightly below a foot rest portion of the leg rest assembly for placing an occupant in a trendelenburg position.
