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.
Rachel loves to rock. She has very low vision and seeks out sensory input. Without a Dynamic Back, she was causing a great deal of wear and tear on her previous manual wheelchair and she was not able to move as readily.
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.
