Phillip – A Case Study of Dynamic Seating Used to Provide Movement

Phillip – A Case Study of Dynamic Seating Used to Provide Movement

Phillip is an adult with developmental 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 to read more.
