Join OT Michelle Lange on demand for An Introduction to Dynamic Seating for Wheelchairs with IACET CEUs provided by NRRTS as an authorized provider.
Dynamic seating provides movement within a wheelchair. When the client moves, the dynamic seating components move with the client, maintaining alignment with the seating system for postural support and stability. Earn 0.2 CEU for this course.
A primary goal of wheelchair seating and mobility is to reduce Shear forces. Does Dynamic Seating increase Shear? This quick class answers that question.

Dynamic Footrests provide movement in 3 directions: telescoping downward, knee extension, and ankle plantar flexion. This Quick Class discusses how to determine which movement to select for an individual client.
It is not typically realistic to trial Dynamic Seating components as the frame may need to be modified. Instead, we can simulate the effects of Dynamic Seating during the assessment to determine if these components are indicated.
This series of three webinars, presented by OT Michelle Lange, explores the relationship between Muscle Tone, Movement, Wheelchair Seating Systems and Dynamic Seating.
