Dynamic Seating for Wheelchairs – Dynamic Components in Motion

Dynamic Seating for Wheelchairs – Dynamic Components in Motion

Seating Dynamics offers a Dynamic Rocker Back Interface, Dynamic Footrests and Dynamic Head Support Hardware which are compatible with most manual and power wheelchairs. These add-on wheelchair components provide and support movement within a wheelchair throughout the body.

Dynamic Seating serves as a solution to a variety of wheelchair seating challenges and can help:

  • To protect the client from injury
  • To protect wheelchair and seating hardware from breakage
  • To increase sitting tolerance and compliance
  • To provide vestibular input
  • To provide active range of motion
  • To increase alertness
  • To decrease agitation
  • To increase function
  • To increase strength and postural control
  • To reduce active extension
  • To reduce energy exertion

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

The following diagnoses often benefit from this technology:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury (when spasms are present)
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Sensory processing disorder (when a wheelchair is also required)
