HOW TO SECURE A GOOD SEATING SOLUTION
- When involuntary movements are the main challenge, our Netti Dynamic System can adapt to the user’s movement and the user will experience less discomfort while having a spasm. Sometimes it is not necessary to have a whole dynamic system and some of the components can be chosen to solve the seating challenge. An example can be just using the dynamic leg supports, or only the dynamic head support or just the dynamic back and seat and no other dynamic functions.
- Create a good seating situation with correct seat unit – we offer both the Netti Cushions as well as the Ride Design cushions.
- Use side support if these are necessary to keep a correct position
- Use accessories like e.g. abduction block, belts or harnesses to create stability
