Conventional Single Motor

  • Legrest and backrest functions connected
  • Does not have tilt-in-space
  • Legrest raises to 90 degrees only
  • Introduces ‘shear’ forces as the angle between the seat base and backrest changes
  • Poor eye-line and interaction as when the legs are up, the backrest has to be reclined back
  • Cannot control backrest and legrest independently
  • Reclines quite a long way back
  • Sometimes called single motor 3-way
  • Only appropriate for users who have the ability to reposition themselves
  • Not appropriate for users with shortened hamstrings or fixtures atthe knees
