Wheelchair Seating and Positioning

DME Shoppe has been designing and manufacturing adaptive seating and positioning systems for over twenty five years and we understand that proper positioning is crucial to the wheelchair-bound client. Determining the correct wheelchair seating is based on a variety of factors such as your range of motion, strength, functional mobility, coordination, postural alignment, sensation and balance. DME Shoppe offers a wide variety of seating systems to help accomplish optimal positioning. Each body is different and a variety of components are applicable to each individual. The proper seating will have many benefits including pressure management, reducing fatigue and enhance balance. For example patients with paralysis have a high risk for pressure sores and therefore usually require special cushions and seating systems to give the skin some relief. There are three basic kinds of cushion materials, each with benefits for certain types of users: air, foam or liquid/gel.

DME Shoppe offers many seating solutions based on patient's need including Foam, Air, Gel, contour-u, silhouette. Each has its own benefits and application. DME Shoppe will guide you through the myriad of choices available to you.
