Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Maintenance

Posted in , ,

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.

Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Durability

Posted in , ,

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?
