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?

Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Allowing Movement

Posted in , ,

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.

Quick Class: Dynamic Seating – Preventing Client Injury

Posted in , ,

Dynamic Seating can assist with preventing client injury for those who exert sustained or intermittent force against seating components. These forces can lead to pain, joint and bone injuries, and possibly even concussions. Dynamic Seating absorbs forces, preventing these injuries.
