Dynamic seating is movement which occurs within the seat and/or wheelchair frame in response to force from the client. Dynamic components absorb force which, in turn, assists the client back to a starting position. Dynamic Seating can be used to diffuse increased tone, provide movement, prevent client injury and prevent damage to the wheelchair seating system and frame. Clinical applications of Dynamic Seating will be explored through a series of case studies.
- The participant will be able to define Dynamic Seating.
- The participant will be able to list 3 goals of Dynamic Seating.
- The participant will be able to describe 3 clinical applications of Dynamic Seating.
