Overview

24 Hour Posture Management approach aims to protect body shape for indivduals with complex rehabilitation needs by providing support to body postures whether in lying, sitting or standing positions.
Evidence references the influence of unsupported lying postures, and the resulting secondary complications.  The negative effects of poor positioning are postural asymmetries; hip dislocations and scoliosis originating in lying will lead to challenges in both sitting and standing equipment provision.
Through the introduction of gentle positioning and supportive input at night, postural restoration can be achieved, leading to better outcomes for sitting and standing postures.
