Dynamic seating has many potential applications. Dynamic components absorb and diffuse force, protecting the wheelchair user from injury caused by sustained and/or repeated forces and reducing damage to the seating system and wheelchair.

A primary goal of wheelchair seating and mobility is to reduce Shear forces. Does Dynamic Seating increase Shear? This quick class answers that question.
Join OT Michelle Lange for this Numotion hosted webinar on how Dynamic Seating provides movement within a wheelchair, and how this movement can lead to clinical benefits.
The optimal level of resistance is critical to the functioning of a Dynamic Back. In this Quick Class, we will review how to determine if the resistance is too firm, too soft, or just right.
Most items need a certain level of maintenance. What about Dynamic Seating components? The answer is, “Yes!” All that force and movement will, eventually, wear down the elastomers. Depending on the degree of force and frequency of movement, the elastomers may have to be changed more frequently for some clients than for others.
Dynamic Seating is often used to prevent equipment breakage, specifically the wheelchair frame and seating system. The Dynamic components absorb strong, repeated, sudden, and/or sustained forces, hence protecting vulnerable areas of the seating and mobility base. But what about the Dynamic Components themselves? Just how durable are these?
