Ashley exhibits large and forceful movements (dystonia) which have led to injury to her legs and damage to the wheelchair. Dynamic Seating, at the head, back and legs, allows her to move easily and safely.
Dyllie is a 25 year old man with the diagnosis of cerebral palsy who has been using Seating Dynamics Dynamic Footrests (telescoping, elevating, and plantar/dorsi flexion), Dynamic Rocker Back, and Dynamic Head Support Hardware for 8 months.
Kristen is a young woman with the diagnosis of cerebral palsy. Kristen extends her body with force, particularly at her legs. She has a long history of breaking her wheelchair footrests secondary to this extension.
Before receiving a new tilt-in-space wheelchair with Dynamic Rocker Back, Darcy’s movement was met with resistance causing many wheelchair breaks, reduced seating tolerance and unsafe “walking of his chair” across the room.
This video shows how the Dynamic Head Support absorbs and diffuses Max’s strong forces, reducing the level of active extension in his neck and facilitating a midline position.
Before receiving a Dynamic Back, Carl was actually standing up in his power wheelchair due to unrelieved extensor tone. After receiving a Dynamic Back on his new power wheelchair, Carl is able to stay seated with his body in alignment with the support surfaces of the seating system.
Carl used to lay on his stomach on a mat on the floor in order to access a computer keyboard using a head stick. With Dynamic Seating, he can now access his computer while seated in his power wheelchair.
Joe has cerebral palsy and dystonia. His Dynamic Rocker Back interface, in combination with his Dynamic Footrests, allow him to move, prevent breakage, and maintain his posture within the seating system.
Carl explains why it was difficult for him to drive his previous power wheelchair and how dynamic seating has improved his ability to drive his new power wheelchair.
When Kylie used to push on her footplates, her entire body extended and she moved out of position in relation to her seating system. With Dynamic Footrests, the footrests move in response to her force and so she remains in a seated position.
