The assessment is the foundation for all that follows in seating and mobility. Conducting a thorough assessment that includes an interview and hands-on component, in addition to understanding the client’s desired outcomes and expectations, is the first step in determining goals for seating and mobility. Once the goals for seating have been established, generic product parameters can be selected to match the goals for seating and mobility. This month’s Clinical Corner article will review the common goals of seating and mobility and offer considerations to facilitate achieving those goals through seating. Although both the cushion and back support work together to achieve desired results, the focus of this month’s article will be on cushion selection. Back support selection based on seating goals will be the topic of a future Clinical Corner article.
