Try this method.

First Determine whether you wish to use Mechanism or Animation. If it is animation, it is simple. You just need to drag the back rest, take snapshots and make an animation file of display v/s time.

If it is a mechanism.

1. Define a servomotor at the joint axis. In this case it would be a pin joint.

2. Define the profile of the servomotor.

3. Define a copy of the same servo motor. Flip the direction for the direction of rotation.

Then make a motion file.

You should be able to do this.
