Last month’s Clinical Corner article addressed adjustable, modular wheelchair seating with a focus on cushions. The article reviewed the spectrum of seating, from off-the-shelf to custom seating and described modular seating as the bridge between standard seating and custom seating. If you missed that article, see Adjustable Modular Wheelchair Seating: Cushions. This month, Clinical Corner will continue to address adjustable, modular wheelchair seating, with the focus on back supports.

Wheelchair seating is fundamental in seating and mobility prescriptions. Combined with the correct wheelchair base for an individual, seating can promote posture and positioning, provide stability, facilitate function, address pressure management and enhance comfort and sitting tolerance.
