Who would benefit from using dynamic seating?

Dynamic seating is often used with clients who have increased muscle tone. The dynamic components absorb extensor forces that could otherwise lead to equipment breakage, decreased sitting tolerance, increased agitation, decreased function, further increases in extension and quite a bit of energy exertion.

Dynamic seating is also used with clients who seek out movement. Dynamic components provide vestibular input, increase alertness, decrease agitation and sometimes increase strength and postural control.
