What is Dynamic Seating?

Dynamic seating provides 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 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.

Resources for ATPS, Caregivers, Clinicians & Families

It takes a team of caring individuals to provide for our clients and make the best choices for their well-being, health, safety and growth. We provide blogs, videos, research and references, classes, how-tos, case studies, FAQs, compatibility and more to provide for informed decisions and care.

Dystonia and Dynamic Seating

Many clients with increased muscle tone also display dystonia. Dystonia is “characterized by involuntary, patterned, sustained, or repetitive contractions of opposing muscles, resulting in abnormal twisting body movements and abnormal postures”.

Dynamic Head Support Hardware and Head Position – Can One Help the Other?

Many clients who benefit from Dynamic Seating specifically benefit from movement at the neck. This may include clients who forcefully extend at the neck or who bang against the head support repeatedly, often in conjunction with a total body rocking movement.

Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Preventing Client Injury

Dynamic Seating can assist with preventing client injury for those who exert sustained or intermittent force against seating components. These forces can lead to pain, joint and bone injuries, and possibly even concussions. Dynamic Seating absorbs forces, preventing these injuries.

In Their Words
