Why Adaptive Seating Interventions?
The functional ability of children and young adults with disability range from ability to sit independently without support to an inability to control head and trunk position. Thus, the complexity of adaptive seating interventions may vary from a simple seating product with little or no customization or clinical involvement, to a sophisticated or complex, multi-adjustable seating system.
How it helps?
- Pediatric occupational and physical therapists recommend adaptive seating devices and services to improve the activity performance of children with disability.
- Adaptive seating control postural alignment, support independent activities enable participation and ease caregiver effort.
- Parents identified that after introducing adaptive devices into their lives their child’s performance and satisfaction have been increased.
- Though, there is a lack of evidence supporting the use of adaptive seating. Still, there are evidence supports the effectiveness of adaptive seating interventions for body function, postural control, arm function and overall clinical outcomes.
