Power Wheelchair Basics: Suspension

This is the 8th blog in our series about power wheelchairs. Check out the1st blog,2nd blog,3rd blog,4th blog,5th blog,6th blog, and 7th blog. Check out ourPower Wheelchair Guidefor more information about power mobility.

As we work our way through our blog series about power wheelchairs, our attention turns towards mechanics of the power wheelchair. Today we're discussing suspension. Suspension is important to provide the individual driving the wheelchair a smooth, comfortable ride over various terrains while maintaining stability and traction for optimal wheelchair base performance.

Power Seat Function Combinations

This is the 7th blog in our series about power wheelchairs. Check out the 1st blog,2nd blog,3rd blog,4th blog, 5th blog, and blog 6th. Check out our Power Wheelchair Guide for more information about power mobility.

Our last three blogs in the power wheelchair series have been about individual power seat functions. Simply put power seat functions are the different positions a power wheelchair can achieve. Today we're looking at how power seat functions and combinations available on different power wheelchair base types.

Power seat functions can always be combined. The available power seating options, however, are dependent to some extent on the type of power wheelchair base selected. Not all power wheelchairs can accommodate all power seat functions or the amount of the power seat function required for medical and/or functional needs. Some of the potential benefits to combining power seat functions include:

Cushion Considerations: Providing the Required Postural Support

This is the 3rd and final blog in our series on cushion considerations. Check out the1st blog and 2nd blog. Check out our Wheelchair Seating and Positioning Guidefor more information about wheelchair seating.

As we determine the appropriate method of pressure redistribution and cushion material, we must be aware of and consider how to address any postural abnormalities that may be present. Everyone is unique and has distinctive shapes and angles. Examples of asymmetrical postures at the pelvis include:

Pelvic tilt
Pelvic obliquity
Pelvic rotation
