This video show 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.
Carl uses a molded seating systems with power wheelchair. See how Dynamic Seating improves both his positioning and function.
Max is an adult with cerebral palsy and significant extensor tone. His Baclofen pump was recently removed secondary to an infection. This has led to strong neck hyperextension and rotation.
When seated in a wheelchair and the lower extremity is extended, extension may be seen at the hip, knee, and even ankle (plantar flexion).
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.
