Balder Finesse F380 – Reclining Wheelchair

The Balder Finesse F380 powerchair is one of our most popular models, featuring countless bespoke options which enable us to build one to your exact needs. The F380 has such a wide range of movement that sitting comfortably at a table or desk, reaching high and low or relaxing in comfort are no longer an aspiration but an everyday reality.

When you sit in a Finesse, the first thing you will notice is how remarkably comfortable it is, due to the seats ergonomic design and high quality upholstery. This, combined with the fully adjustable seat, back, footrests and leg supports, gives you a chair that does everything possible to reduce friction and relieve pressure.

Featuring 5 powered seat functions as standard, including an impressive 'tilt-in-space’ movement that allows you to tilt back by up to 45° and forward by 15° whilst remaining in the same seated position. Furthermore, its ability to lay you completely flat with variable seat height functions make it one of the most versatile powerchairs available.
