Determining if a Dynamic Back is Appropriate

Posted in: , , ,

In general, if a client has moderate to significant hip extension, is seeking movement, and/or has a history of equipment breakage, a Dynamic Back may be appropriate. However, trialing a Dynamic Back can be challenging, as the frame may have to be modified to trial this equipment. How do you determine if this intervention is appropriate without actually trying it?
