“We often find ourselves struggling in clinical practice when the individual we are assessing has fluctuating and/or increased extensor tone for example. Providing static solutions to dynamic bodies can sometimes be detrimental to the individual using the wheelchair and seating system. A fantastic option for many individuals presenting with a lot of movement due to tone is dynamic seating. As clinicians we can determine from our hands on assessment as well as from listening to and paying heed to the history this person has had with technology whether dynamic seating may be a consideration for successful outcomes. We can even determine at what joints the individual may benefit most from this dynamic movement opportunity, protecting the individual and the technology from damage.”
