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.
The optimal level of resistance is critical to the functioning of Dynamic Head Support Hardware. In this Quick Class, we will review how to determine resistance based on specific client parameters.
Join OT Michelle Lange and other Assistive Technology professionals April 29-30 for the Apexpo 2021 for education and product discovery within wheelchair seating and mobility.
The optimal level of resistance is critical to the functioning of Dynamic Footrests. In this Quick Class, we will review how to determine resistance at the telescoping and elevating features.
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?
Dynamic seating is movement which occurs within the seating system and/or wheelchair frame in response to intentional or unintentional force generated by the client. Dynamic components absorb force and assist the client back to a starting position. Dynamic seating has many potential applications.
