Posture management

A posture management approach is indicated when it is difficult to attain or sustain a good posture. Posture management will be aimed at helping you to be comfortable in sitting or lying in a way that allows you to engage with your environment as much as possible while at the same time preventing contractures, pressure areas, deformities and other complications that are associated with immobility, spasticity or poor postural control.

Posture management is a holistic approach which will involve working closely with you, your family, carers, other health professionals and services. It may involve specialist equipment to support your posture such as sleep systems and specialist seating. 24 hour posture management plans will be tailored to meet your needs and training provided.
