Free CEU: Introduction to Dynamic Seating for Wheelchairs

Free CEU: Introduction to Dynamic Seating for Wheelchairs

Join OT Michelle Lange on demand for An Introduction to Dynamic Seating for Wheelchairs with IACET CEUs provided by NRRTS as an authorized provider.

Description

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 and stability. Clients who extend within the seating system or seek out movement may benefit from dynamic seating. Dynamic components absorb and diffuse force, protecting both the client from pain and injury and the wheelchair seat and frame from damage. Absorbing force may reduce muscle tone. Providing movement can increase alertness and decrease agitation. Movement can also improve function and postural control.

Learning Objectives

The participant will be able to:

  • List 3 clinical indicators for Dynamic Seating.
  • List 3 areas of movement provided by Dynamic Seating.
  • List 1 product option for a Dynamic Back, Dynamic Footrests, and Dynamic Head Support Hardware.
