if you look at my projects, recently I’ve been making Cervical Chairs. These chairs are used in chiropractic offices and needs to have the ability to adjust the backrest to different angles. It also needs the ability to fold all the way to the ground.

this design has been used for probably the last 60+ years. Its time for a re-inventing of the wheel. I’m trying to get rid of the clutter of that back mechanism and replace it with these hinges. With the mechanism in the pictures above, you are limited in the angle of your backrest by how many notches you cut out of the block at the bottom. With these new hinges, you can recline in increments of 10 degrees and lock it in place. Plus it’ll make it look less cluttered in the back and more modern. It also opens up the possibility of new designs of the chair….more aesthetically pleasing designs

I think these hinges are awesome! I’m really glad I stumbled upon them. Just wish they were cheaper.
