So Many Choices: Choosing a Client-Centered Cushion
Every seating team aims to make client-centered decisions when choosing the optimal wheelchair seat cushion.
But with so many cushions to choose from — and so many priorities to consider, from pressure relief to positioning — where should the seating team start?
This presentation will share recent scientific insights on how pressure injuries occur and how that information can be used to make seating and seat cushion selections for clients with varying needs.
Seating experts Bart Van der Heyden, PT, and Filipe Monforte Correia, European & Latin American Business Developing Manager for Stealth Products, will also discuss how different cushion design elements address load management, seated stability, and postural support for optimal function.
