Dynamic Head Support
Seating Dynamics has Single Axis and Multi Axis Dynamic Head Support Hardware.
The Dynamic Head Support Hardware allows neck extension, diffusing and absorbing force to protect the client, protect the hardware, and reduce overall extensor tone.
The Dynamic Head Support can be used on its own or in combination with the Dynamic Rocker Back and Dynamic Footrests.
Dynamic Rocker Back Interface (DRBi)
This is positioned between the seat and the back of a wheelchair providing movement of the back to absorb forces and assist the client back to upright. This movement can protect both the client from injury and the seating system and mobility base from breakage. It reduces extension and provides movement to reduce agitation, increase alertness and provide sensory input. It can also facilitate functional activities.
Movement against resistance in a limited range can also increase trunk and head control.
