Yes. DRBis are used very often on tilt in space wheelchairs.
The back of the seating system must move separately from the seat in order to activate the DRBi. If the molded seating system is available in two pieces, this can be used with a DRBi. The Aspen Seating Orthosis is available with a limited recline to accommodate a DRBi.
A molded back can generally be used with a Dynamic Rocker Back Interface for two reasons. First, the seat to back angle only opens approximately 10-15 degrees. This amount of movement leads to a minimal amount of shear, allowing the client to remain in alignment with the contours of the back. Second, the Dynamic Rocker Back is mounted with a pivot point that further reduces shear, again, allowing the client to remain in alignment with the contours of the back.
Yes. Custom seating is frequently used for clients needing a dynamic back. The DRBi allows for the seating back to be mounted approximately 7” above the seat rail. This measurement varies slightly, depending on the model of wheelchair for which the DRBi is installed.
