Abstract [Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the timing of leg support elevation on the horizontal force acting on the buttocks in a reclining wheelchair. [Subjects and Methods] The participants were 17 healthy men. Two experimental conditions were tested: the leg-down and leg-up conditions. The back support was reclined at increasing angles, from the initial upright position (IUP), proceeding to the fully reclined position (FRP), and returned to the upright position (RUP). The posterior inclination phase was from IUP to FRP, and the returning inclination phase was from FRP to RUP. [Results] The horizontal force under the leg-up condition was significantly higher than that under the leg-down condition in all positions of back support. [Conclusion] The leg supports should be positioned downward before reclining the back support of a wheelchair.
