What is dynamic seating?

A dynamic seating solution will accommodate the user’s extension movements letting the wheelchair work in synergy with the movements. With the Netti Dynamic System you can maintain a good seating position for the user throughout the day – thereby securing the optimum pressure distribution as the user will return to the original position after a spasm. The supporting features during the spasms ensure a high level of user acceptance and extends the lifespan of the wheelchair.

Netti Dynamic System is modular and can be a complete dynamic wheelchair or a traditional wheelchair with one or more dynamic components.

Why choose a dynamic solution?

  • Allowing movement
  • Distributing forces
  • Increase the total seating time per day
  • Increased postural control
  • Minimize spasticity
  • Increased ADL for the user
  • Longer lifetime of the wheelchair

When to choose a complete dynamic wheelchair

A complete dynamic wheelchair is indicated when the symptoms of the user result in a total extension spasm or in involuntary movements of the hip/back and eventual legs and head.

When to choose dynamic components in combination with a traditional wheelchair

This is indicated if the symptoms of the user are involuntary movement of only one or two of the three underneath described areas.

  • Head - dynamic head support
  • Back - dynamic back
  • Feet/leg - dynamic leg support
