Phillip is an adult with intellectual disabilities. He lives at the Mary Campbell Center in Wilmington, DE. He has increased muscle tone throughout his body. Phillip is non-ambulatory and nonverbal. He seeks out movement and tends to rock with his entire body in his manual wheelchair for much of the day.
Phillip was seen in May of 2017 with his team of therapists at his residential center. He was positioned in a Quickie IRIS tilt in space manual wheelchair with a Jay Custom Fit linear back and a Stimulite cushion. He also had a wide, flat head support; lateral trunk supports; pelvic positioning belt; and lateral thigh supports. Although he was fairly well positioned, his constant rocking had led to increased wear and tear on his wheelchair frame and seating system. Download his Dynamic Seating Case Study to learn more.
“He loves it! This has saved the chair from breaking down because he has moving components now.”
