Dynamic seating provides movement within a wheelchair. When the client moves, the dynamic seating components move with the client, maintaining alignment with the seating system for postural support, skin integrity preservation, and stability. Clients who move against this resistance in a small and controlled range develop increased postural control, particularly trunk and head control, as well as increased function (Lange, et al, 2017; Lange, 2016).
This document is designed to provide Clinical Guidelines for the use of Dynamic Seating with clients who have the potential to develop increased postural control and function. Please refer to our other Clinical Guidelines for additional Dynamic Seating applications.
