What is a “dynamic” back and why is it so important?
A back support typically provides stability. A dynamic back allows movement by absorbing the force and flex of the user (D D Freney & K Swartz).
It can address issues that are related to abnormal movement patterns. Benefits include a reduction in the intensity of non voluntary movement, improved tolerance to seating, pain reduction and reduction in potential skin breakdown. Overall it enables optimum positioning within the seat and enhances stability, symmetry and function. (Dr Tim Adlam)
Why the x:panda dynamic back? The dynamic back of the x:panda absorbs the energy driven by the childs' extensor pattern of movement. It returns them back to their original upright posture without compromising the pelvis and whilst maintaining a midline symmetrical position.
