This EV recliner also doubles as a rocker with comforting motion for residents or patients in need of a little soothing movement.
It acts as a rocker until the footrest is raised, or the rocking is locked with a foot pedal. It can support up to 550lbs so accommodate patients of all sizes, and the footrest has a safety overload feature to prevent tipping.
The EV rocker recliner has an all steel frame starting with casters bolted to the steel base frame, up through the all steel heavy gauge reclining mechanism, through tubular steel seat frame with steel springs, up through a heavy gauge steel pin attachment to the removable back. All weight is carried by the steel structures with no load placement on interior wood parts. The central lock and steer design features four 4" diameter swivel locking casters soft treads. All four casters may either swivel for sideways movement, lock by a red lever, or steer with a green lever. The back has a padded push bar for ease of movement, and is easily removable for staff to easily and thoroughly clean recliner between uses. The back moves into infinite reclining positions, allowing a comfortable reclined position, so the occupant can adjust back positions to their exact preference by releasing a locking lever and using body movement to adjust. The back locks into selected recline position when lever is released. The footrest can be raised and lowered with a strong steel side handle. The footrest moves independent of back position, and the mechanism has load protection eliminating damage from overload abuse. It also features mid-ottoman calf support for full leg comfort.
The seat frame pivot is synchronized to back frame movement, which allows an occupant’s weight to assist when elevating the back to an upright position. The back and footrest movement is smooth and spring assisted for occupants who are weak or ill. All steel seat frame is constructed of 6 sinuous steel springs for a bottomless, comfortable ride for large occupants. Arced sinuous steel springs push up from underneath seat foam and upholstery to maintain a wrinkle free seat deck after long term use. The seat cushion is 6" thick high resiliency foam. A LiquidCell layer under upholstery reduces shear and friction of skin cells, and adds to long term comfort. The Sta-Kleen polyurethane vinyl upholstery is bleach cleanable, and enables erasure of permanent marker, ball point pen and other stains with isopropyl alcohol.
