    Sure looks about like mine which is 85 degrees I believe. It's a nice sharp angle for good manuverability. Only real drawback I find to this sort of thing is your hamstrings in your legs tend to tighten up more as they are sitting bent all the time so you need to do more range of motion and stretching when laying down.

    Ya, tough to tell for sure, You can run the s/n through the Quickie website and find out all the exact dimensions of the chair. http://orderentry.sunrisemedical.com...owPlainResults

    Just my luck, the serial wasnt recognized. I took a better picture, what do you think?

    I'd guess 80.

    FYI, the casters are too small, or taller forks are needed... or the hardware is messed up... but the angle isn't right.

    Printing the pic, using a straight edge to draw, a ruler to measure, and trigonometry to calculate, I arrived at 78 degrees. Given the inaccuracy of this method, I guess an 80-degree front angle.
