Wheelchair Seating and Positioning

in Idaho, Washington, Oregon & Montana

There is art to providing the appropriate products for wheelchair users when it comes to seating and positioning.  American Seating and Mobility’s RESNA Certified Assistive Technology Professionals provides a comprehensive approach along with your healthcare professional when determining which wheelchair seating and positioning products are most appropriate for your unique needs.

Wheelchair seating and positioning products are the heart of the power or manual wheelchairs. They are determined through a in-depth seating assessment along with your physical therapist, occupational therapist and/or other healthcare professional. Many factors are taken into consideration when it comes to evaluating a client for the most appropriate wheelchair cushion, back support or other custom seating solution.   Being properly positioned in a power or manual wheelchair can impact the client’s ability to be more independent in their wheelchair, protect against skin issues and reduce secondary complications.  Contact one of our branches today for more info. We are dedicated to helping you.

Wheelchair Cushions

Positioning the pelvis and protecting the skin is one of the most important functions of not only the wheelchair cushion but also is extremely important in being the focal point of functionality for the entire power or manual wheelchair.  Because no two bodies and conditions are alike, you must be sure that you have been evaluated by your healthcare professional as well as one of our professionals at American Seating and Mobility.  There are thousands of different wheelchair cushion configurations that are available on the market that address many different aspects of being seated in a wheelchair. Functionality, positioning, diagnosis, every day activities, transfers, maintenance are just a few of the factors that are taken into consideration when recommending a wheelchair cushion that is appropriate for you.

Wheelchair Back Supports

A wheelchair back support can be just as important at positioning the pelvis and upper body as the wheelchair cushion.  Gravity takes it’s toll on the spine and can limit reach, lead to secondary injuries and conditions, decrease the opportunity for wheelchair users to complete activities of daily living and much more.  Back supports come in all different sizes, shapes, materials and supporting features and it is very important to be evaluated by your healthcare professionals and a qualified supplier like American Seating and Mobility to achieve the goals of each individual person using a wheelchair.  Choosing the wrong wheelchair back support can have a significant impact on the wheelchair user’s life.

Custom Seating Solutions

There are many product solutions available on the market to address seating and positioning in power and manual wheelchairs.  Different types of supports for the head, trunk, hips, legs, etc can be added to a wheelchair cushion or back support to achieve maximum body alignment to achieve goals of the individual wheelchair user.  Sometimes custom a custom mold is the best solution for preventative measures to keep a client from developing secondary complications, especially if there are significant skin issues or limited range of motion to correct posture.  Our dedicated team of professionals are trained to work with your healthcare professional and have many times determined that a custom seating solution must be provided.
