Providing movement within the seating system and/or wheelchair frame allows the client to move while maintaining contact with support surfaces to provide stability and reduce shear forces. Dynamic seating has many applications.

Missy Ball, MT, PT, ATP, NDT on Thursday, August 24, 2017 at 10AM PDT.
