Dynamic Seating – 60 minutes
Dynamic seating has three primary functions – to allow movement, to diffuse force and to protect the seating system and mounting hardware. Dynamic options continue to expand and improve. This webinar will take a look at the product options, discuss clinical indicators and contra-indicators for dynamic components and present case studies to illustrate these points. Providing movement has been shown to both calm agitated clients and help sub-aroused clients to be more alert.Dynamic Seating Handout
