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. Read our blog on this topic
Who can Benefit from Dynamic Seating?
Dynamic seating is used in three main clinical scenarios. First, it is used to diffuse force, for example with clients who have 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 energy consumption. Secondly, it is used to allow movement, for example with clients who seek out movement. Dynamic components allow movement that provides vestibular input, increases alertness, and decreases agitation. Thirdly, dynamic seating can improve postural control and stability, as well as function. Read our blog on this topic
