What is Dynamic Seating?
Dynamic seating is movement which occurs within the seat and/or wheelchair frame in response to force from the client. Dynamic components absorb force which, in turn, assists the client back to a starting position.
Who can Benefit from Dynamic Seating?
Dynamic seating is used in two main clinical scenarios. First, for clients with increased muscle tone, dynamic components absorb extensor forces that could otherwise lead to client injury, equipment breakage, decreased sitting tolerance, increased agitation, decreased function, further increases in extension and quite a bit of energy exertion. Second, for clients who seek out movement, dynamic components provide vestibular input, increased alertness, decreased agitation and sometimes increased strength and postural control.
