I believe the most important factor is your dogs comfort. Secondary is the dog's ability to use the wheelchair. Be careful on picking your wheelchair. When chosen correctly for your dog a wheelchair can give him or her the mobility and quality of life they deserve.
On the social side of your child's wheelchair needs, take into consideration his or her lifestyle, the temperament of your child, how he or she faces social situations, makes new friends, deals with being different, etc. For instance, how will your child handle the frustrations of first learning to use the controls and maneuver the power wheelchair? Will he or she become impatient and quick to give up or will your child be determined? Will your child be embarrassed entering new environments and new experiences confined to the wheelchair? Or will he or she thrive in these circumstances?
That said, though the headrest is designed to lean back as you lean back your head, the springs are fairly strong and for those with weak neck muscles, it can often feel like it is forcing your head forward. The best solution is to keep the headrest reclined.
The lumbar and head support on the Ekornes recliner are designed to work in parallel, moving with you as you recline the chair. The headrest can both lay flat or stay up, depending on a simple, manual adjustment.
