What is Dynamic Seating?

Let’s Get Together! Using Multiple Dynamic Seating Components

Michelle L. Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS Dynamic Seating components are often used at the hips (dynamic backs), knees (dynamic footrests) and the neck (dynamic head supports). Dynamic components can be used individually, however combining these components can often maximize the impact Dynamic Seating can make and better meet the client’s needs.

Modular Dynamic Seating Components Vs. Integrated Dynamic Seating Systems

Our last two blogs have addressed Integrated and Modular Dynamic Seating. Integrated systems are a dedicated mobility base incorporating several areas of movement. Modular components can be retrofitted to a mobility base and used individually or in combination with one another. Let’s take a look at Spencer’s transition from an Integrated system to Modular components.…

Advantages of Modular Dynamic Seating Systems

Our last blog revisited the differences between Integrated and Modular Dynamic Seating; specifically, the advantages of Integrated systems. In this blog, we will highlight the advantages of Modular Dynamic components. Whereas Integrated systems are a dedicated mobility base incorporating several areas of movement, Modular components can be retrofitted to a mobility base and used individually…

Pros and Cons of Integrated Dynamic Seating Systems

Michelle L. Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS One of our past blogs, posted September 14th of 2016, explained the difference between Integrated and Modular Dynamic Seating. When boiled down to the basics, the difference between the two options is: Integrated systems come as a unit – the dynamic components are a part of a dedicated wheelchair.…

Clinical Indicators for Dynamic Seating – An Overview

  Michelle L. Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS Our last blog defined Dynamic Seating as movement which occurs within the seat and/or wheelchair frame in response to force from the client. Dynamic components absorb force which in turn assists the client back to a starting position. Now that we know what Dynamic seating is, when is…

What is Dynamic Seating? A definition.

Michelle L. Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS  Dynamic, in the context of physics, is defined as “of or relating to force or power” and “of or relating to force related to motion.” In wheelchair seating, dynamic refers to components which translate force into motion of a portion of the seating system and/or wheelchair frame and, as…
