Complex Power-Tilt Wheelchairs

If your child needs a power wheelchair, but also needs help shifting his or her weight, a Complex Power-Tilt Wheelchair offers both. When they tilt, their hip angle remains the same, but their body tilts backwards, allowing weight to shift and providing pressure relief while maintaining range of motion. Each Tilt Wheelchair is also individually configured to your child’s needs and personality — from varying height and weight options to color and seating preferences.
If your child has changing needs, Complex Power-Tilt Wheelchairs have the ability to be modified. We always individually configure it to your child’s needs and comfort. There are many configurations, including:
  • Width, depth, height and seat angles
  • Specialty and custom seat and back cushions
  • Positioning items like headrests and side and hip supports
  • Sophisticated powered tilt and recline functions
  • Manual and power elevating leg rests and foot platforms
  • Specialty joystick controls
  • Alternative drive controls including foot control, head control and sip-n-puff

Health Health

Prevents Pressure Injuries
Redistributing pressure helps prevent pressure injuries.

Improves Orthopedics
Tilt improves seating alignment by keeping your child's hip and knee angles maintained while tilting. Maintaining this alignment can lessen the occurrence of orthopedic issues.

Supports Digestive Health
​A correct, upright position helps prevent digestive complications.

Encourages Blood Flow
Tilt positioning prevents postural hypotension and helps lower blood pressure for those at risk for autonomic dysreflexia.

Helps Lung Function
The ability to position and reposition correctly keeps the diaphragm open to help prevent complications for those at risk for respiratory complications.

Medical Necessity

To get insurance coverage for Complex Rehab Technology, your insurance provider must determine your child has a “medical necessity”. This means your child must have a condition that requires the equipment to prevent, diagnose or treat an illness, injury, condition, disease or its symptoms. 

Most insurance providers only offer coverage if your child has a significant impairment that limits him or her from performing daily activities. However, Medicaid will often pay for parts, service and other mobility products and support so your child has more community access.

Who needs this technology?

If your child is completely dependent on his or her chair and can’t propel or perform weight shifts on his or her own, tilt technology is a great option.


Many children with conditions like spinal cord injury, muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy use Complex Power Tilt Wheelchairs.


We want to make the process as easy on you as possible. From working with clinicians and insurers, to customizing your child’s equipment so it’s a perfect fit, we’re by your side.
