Wheelchair positioning and seating modification recommendations :
For those who are Wheelchair Bound, it’s extremely crucial that the wheelchair Positioning is comfortable and suited to the patient’s specific requirements. For example, if there is loss of sensation, an air cushion is recommended to prevent skin sores. If the client has poor trunk control and is unable to sit upright, the wheelchair would require a slightly inclined backrest with lapbelt and/ or upper trunk reinforcement depending on the extent of the impairment.
