Seating & Postural Management
Posture is vital to our level of function and can greatly affect our ability to carry out day-to-day activities, whether in sitting in a wheelchair or at a computer desk; or in lying in a position for sleep or rest.
Seating & postural management
At SP Therapy Services our Occupational Therapists are skilled in providing:
- comprehensive assessment and recommendation for wheelchairs, specialist seating (moulded chairs, powered wheelchairs) and static seating
- support for tissue viability through the recommendation and use of suitable cushions and mattresses
- advice and recommendations for additional postural support to aid comfort in a wheelchair or armchair
- advice and recommendation on lying supports and night-time positioning
Heather says “We are all aware if we are uncomfortable; it can be difficult to concentrate or to sleep. If we can move you can get up and stretch; if we can talk you can complain about the chair. What about if you could do neither? This is where a skilled OT can make a real difference.”
We can provide home visits & clinic appointments.
SP Therapy Services take great care in providing an exceptional standard of therapy to all our patients, whatever their individual age, diagnosis or location.
