Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Improving Postural Control and Stability

Posted in , ,

Dynamic seating provides resistance to movement initiated by the wheelchair user, usually through spring or elastomer type mechanisms or other resistive, but mobile components. Movement against resistance has been demonstrated to increase strength in people with increased muscle tone without an increase in spasticity. Increased muscle strength can, in turn, improve both postural control and functioning.

Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Allowing Movement

Dynamic Seating moves in response to client forces. Many clients move, not due to increased extensor tone, but rather for the explicit purpose of moving. We all tend to seek out movement. We are wired to move, and movement has so many benefits.

Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Preventing Equipment Damage

Posted in , ,

The forces from extension on a static wheelchair seat and frame can be so strong as to cause damage to equipment. Hardware used to mount the seating system and components (such as a head support), are particularly susceptible to damage.
