Pilot study of a strap-based custom wheelchair seating system in persons with spinal cord injury. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(8):1255–64. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Aim – Evaluate strap-based system in 3 Veterans with spinal cord injury. Relevance – Custom wheelchair seats can be used to help prevent pressure ulcers in individuals with spinal cord injury.

Pilot study of a strap-based custom wheelchair seating system in persons with spinal cord injury. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(8):1255–64. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Method 3 therapists using FlexForm seating system measured interface pressure distributions after: – Transfers. – Wheeling. – Pressure relief maneuvers. – Fittings. Therapists adjusted woven seat and had subjects use wheelchair until straps stopped lengthening. Therapists then performed final fitting with wheelchair on a stand.

Pilot study of a strap-based custom wheelchair seating system in persons with spinal cord injury. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2014;51(8):1255–64. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Results Pressure distribution measures were not affected after transfers and wheeling using strap-based wheelchair. Pressure relief maneuvers could be performed. All therapists could customize wheelchair seat to clinically acceptable levels in min for the 3 subjects.
