technically, yes.. the 5:1 safety factor means the hinge is designed to fail at 5 times the listed figure.

Another problem I see with this particular hinge in this situation is locking them at the same angle. I feel the back of the chair could twist a bit when lowering the chair. Once locked in, the patient would be a little twisted. Probably not enough to be troublesome for the spines alignment, but it would make the chair feel unsafe possibly making the patient tense up.
