Robert is a Dynamic Seating old-timer. This 27 year old man has been using Dynamic Seating for about 10 years now. He first began using Dynamic Seating when a change in funding prompted the order for a new manual wheelchair and his therapists at California Children’s Services (CCS) along with Betsy McKone (then of Rehab Specialists and later Numotion) turned to Dynamic Seating options. Robert had a long history of breaking items on his wheelchair, particularly his footplates and back canes, due to very strong extensor tone. Download his Dynamic Seating Case Study to learn more.
“His positioning in the chair is much better than what we have been able to provide in the past. This facilitates his endurance, his comfort, and his ability to use augmentative communication devices. He seems more relaxed in his body, and therefore able to be more attentive with his mind. The fact that the Rocker Back reduces wheelchair breakages saves us time and emotional energy, gives us one less thing to stress over, and actually allows us to go enjoy life more often.”
