Having the right position in a wheelchair is one of the main factors needed to remain healthy and age well with a disability. The 4 important factors of a good seating solutions are:

  • Positioning
  • Stability
  • Variation
  • Skin protection

Having the right position in a wheelchair is one of the main factors needed to remain healthy and age well with a disability. Stability is imperative to maintain the right position. Loss of position increases the negative load on the body – the skin, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and other structures and reduces the quality of life. Variation is important to vary this load so health can be optimized. To ensure a comfortable long-time seating, the skin must be protected and temperature, moisture, gravity pressure, friction, shear forces thus need to be optimized.
