Derrick – Meeting Multiple Needs through Dynamic Seating

Derrick is a 42 year old male who resides in a group home with 24 other non-ambulatory, yet socially active, adults.

His community outings include social opportunities (i.e. visiting restaurants, attending sporting events, shopping) and medical appointments.
