Dynamic Seating Maintenance

Maintaining Head Support Position – let’s do the math!

I see a lot of clients for head positioning in their wheelchair seating system. This requires a thorough seating assessment, as well as providing the best product. Even if I choose what I believe to be the very best head support for a client, I find that maintaining the position of that support is a challenge. I continually find that the hardware has moved, often resulting in a sub-optimal head position for the client.

Dynamic Head Support Hardware: Choosing Tilt and Recline Resistance

The Dynamic Head Support Hardware absorbs client forces and then returns the client to an upright and neutral head position. The purpose of this dynamic component is to protect the client from harm, prevent the mounting hardware from breaking, and to reduce overall extension tone. This hardware can be used with nearly any head pad to best meet an individual’s needs.

Determining Resistance: Dynamic Footrests – Update

Seating Dynamics Dynamic Footrests can move in up to 3 directions. First, the footrests can telescope, allowing movement downward. Second, the footrests can elevate, allowing the knee to extend and the foot to move forward. Third, the footplate can move into plantar and dorsi flexion, allowing ankle movement.

New Back Cane Saw & Drill Jig Simplifies DRBi Installation

Seating Dynamics Dynamic Rocker Back interface (DRBi) provides movement in response to client forces. These forces are stored and then return the client to a neutral starting position. This Dynamic Back has many clinical applications, but first it must be correctly mounted to a wheelchair base.

Determining Resistance: Head Support

This blog is the third in a series on determining the optimal resistance when using dynamic components. The first blog in this series addressed determining resistance in the Dynamic Rocker Back Interface (DRBi) and the second blog addressed finding the optimal resistance when using Dynamic Footrests. In this final blog, we shall turn to the Dynamic Head Support Hardware.

How Much is too Much? Choosing Resistance.

The Dynamic Rocker Back Interface (DRBi) moves in response to client force as two elastomers are compressed. The energy stored in the elastomers helps the client to return to an upright starting position. These elastomers can be switched to change the level of resistance.
