Seating Dynamics Dynamic Telescoping Footrest for Wheelchair Movement
Some clients may benefit from a telescoping feature in their wheelchair footrest. This client may have very tight hamstrings which limit active knee extension. The telescoping feature can absorb and diffuse force.
Knee extension, in combination with the telescoping feature, follows the natural arc of movement which occurs when the knee is straightened.
Seating Dynamics has excellent dynamic products that are compatible with many frames. In my experience, the dynamic back and footrests have prevented frame damage, allowed for extension of the client but with return of pelvis to effective sitting posture, reduced pressures on back, buttock and foot area, and reduced agitation on clients with SI issues. Dynamic motion has also reduced constipation issues on one of my clients.
Missy, thanks so much for your comments! These are wonderful benefits to Dynamic Seating! And thanks for all you do for the clients that you serve!
