What is Dynamic Seating?

Dynamic seating allows coordinated movement within a wheelchair. When the client moves, the dynamic seating components move with the client, maintaining alignment with the seating system for postural support and stability. The Dynamic Rocker Back, Dynamic Footrests, and Dynamic Head Support Hardware can be used individually, or in combination, to meet an individual’s needs. Clients who extend within the seating system or seek out movement may benefit from dynamic seating. Dynamic components absorb and diffuse force, protecting both the client from pain and injury and the wheelchair seat and frame from damage. Absorbing force may also reduce muscle tone. Providing movement can increase alertness and decrease agitation. Movement can also improve function and postural control. Dynamic seating can improve quality of life for many wheelchair users and their caregivers.

We provide blogs, videos, research and references, classes, how-to guides, case studies, FAQs, compatibility and more to facilitate informed decisions and care.

“We often find ourselves struggling in clinical practice when the individual we are assessing has fluctuating and/or increased extensor tone for example.
