Joe’s Dynamic Footrests

Joe’s Dynamic Footrests

Joe has cerebral palsy and dystonia. His movements are nearly constant and can be very forceful, at times. This has led to equipment breakage and loss of posture, as Joe would ‘stand’ on his footplates and subsequently lift his pelvis off of the seating surface. His Dynamic Rocker Back interface, in combination with his Dynamic Footrests, allow him to move, prevent breakage, and maintain his posture within the seating system.

    I am inquiring to see how much force the dynamic footrests and back rest can absorb for a very active patient with Huntington’s disease. Please provide information on dynamics and any recommendations.
    Thank you,

      Catherine, the dynamic components can tolerate a great deal of force without breaking. I am happy to discuss this with you further. I will contact you directly.

    Hi there,

    Is it possible to use this system on a manual style wheelchair that would be low enough for an individual to foot propel when they are not having extensor tone movements?

      Katie, our dynamic components are available on a wide variety of manual wheelchairs, including those low enough for foot propulsion. Would this person need a Dynamic Back, Dynamic Footrests, or both?
