Dynamic Seating

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 assists the client back to a starting position.

Benefits of Dynamic Seating

Diffuse Force

Dynamic components absorb extensor forces that could otherwise lead to client injury, equipment breakage, decreased sitting tolerance, increased agitation, decreased function, further increases in extension, and energy consumption, i.e clients with increased muscle tone.

Allow Movement

Dynamic components allow movement that provides vestibular input, increases alertness, and decreases agitation. Thirdly, dynamic seating can improve postural control and stability, as well as function, i.e. for clients who seek out movement.
