7. Objective Assessment – Postural Control and Pelvic Stability

Due to the variability among people it is acknowledged that a universal seating position is not practical and an individual assessment and prescription is recommended.

Why do we need to assess?

We also need a baseline upon which to measure the effectiveness of any prescribed specialist seating during the review process.

Pelvic stability is the foundation for a good sitting posture as it enables good postural control and dictates what happens to the body segments above and below. This video demonstrates how best to identify any pelvic stability or postural control problems during the assessment process and provides some hints and tips to address these problems.

Disclaimer: Ensure the assessment and prescription is completed by an experienced and qualified professional who has the competence and confidence required. Or contact us to book a free no-obligation assessment with our own seating assessors.
