In which situations should a dynamic solution be considered?
The International Dynamic Seating Workgroup (IDSW), of which Netti is a member, has identified 3 user groups that may be indicated to use a dynamic seating solution.
Users who struggle to keep a good seating position
Main goal is to improve posture and position.
A dynamic system can improve postural control, stability and function. We have found statistic proof for the following areas:
- Improved seating position
- Reduced the risk for pressure sores
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Increased lung health
Users who have increased muscle tone and have involuntary movements
Main goal is to diffuse force
A dynamic seating system will absorb the energy of the movements and guide / assist the user back to the starting position and in this way:
- Reduce equipment breakage
- Increase sitting tolerance
- Reduce agitation
- Increase function
- Energy consumption
