WHEN TO CHOOSE A COMPLETE DYNAMIC WHEELCHAIR?
A complete dynamic wheelchair is indicated when the symptoms of the user result in a total extension spasm or in involuntary movements of the hip/back which in most cases also affects the legs.
THE ADVANTAGES OF A DYNAMIC WHEELCHAIRS
Increase the total seating time per day
Increased postural control
Increased ADL for the user
Longer lifetime of the wheelchair

DYNAMIC SEAT UNIT TO PREVENT SLIDING AND ENSURE PRESSURE RELIEF
DYNAMIC SEAT UNIT
An essential part of the complete Netti Dynamic chairs is the dynamic seat unit. The seat plate will adjust to the user’s extension movements letting the wheelchair work in synergy with the movements.
Our Dynamic chairs are always equipped with a pelvic stabilizer from Body Point to support the function of the dynamic seat plate and to prevent sliding and actively stop a negative seating position.
Freedom of movement will provide the user with a better seating position. With the dynamic seat unit, the user is guided back to the original seating position and in this way we prevent/reduce shear- and pressure forces, which are some of the main factors causing pressure ulcer.
For security reasons the seat plate can be locked during transport or when driving on uneven roads.
USER ADVANTAGES OF DYNAMIC SEATING
We at Netti always seek to improve the user’s overall wellbeing and ability to take part in everyday life activities. The seating advantages of dynamic solutions are among others:
Being able to sit longer time in the wheelchair
Skin protection by minimizing sliding and shear
Optimal posture enabling better eating, drinking and respiration functions
REDUCE MUSCLE TONE, PAIN AND DAMAGE USING NETTI DYNAMIC SYSTEM
We at Netti are convinced that our Netti Dynamic System can improve quality of life for the wheelchair user as the system will reduce muscle tone, pain and damage to both chair and user.
What happens when an involutary movement occurs in a dynamic wheelchair
When the body part which is set to movement is not fixed (like in the Netti Dynamic System), it can move over a certain distance and loses some of its energy by doing so in an isotonic muscle contraction. This results in a dynamic movement of the part being moved and this movement happens in an open kinetic chain. At the end of the movement the contraction remains often for a longer period, due to the spasm remaining, while the muscle is often in the maximal shortened position and the joints are not able to move any more.
A dynamic system which allows the joints to make a full movement and let the muscle end in the maximal shortened position via an open kinetic chain, will result in the least amount of force in the end position. This means less forced applied to the wheelchair but also less force on the muscle, the joints, and the body.

UNIQUE SEATPLATE WITH PRESSURE RELIEVING WELL
For the Netti Dynamic AdaptPro, we have created a new seatplate with various advantages for long time seating.
A seat plate well ensures pressure relief under the sitting bones and helps decrease long-term skin risk and aids sitting stability. The perforated surface creates ventilation and reduces humidity while being hygienic as it is easy to wipe. A good microclimate is important in the prevention of pressure ulcers, as damp skin sticks more easily to fabric, creating friction and rubbing.
20% LOWER PEAK PRESSURE
With the new design of the seat plate we have optained a significantly lower peak pressure on sitting bones compared to a solid seat plate. Our studies have shown that there is more immersion due to the shape of the seatplate. There is also a clear reduction in peak pressure and more importantly, the pressure has moved more forwards - away from the sensitive area around the coccyx and the ischial tuberiosities.
Measurement 1 is from a solid seat plate with Netti Uno seat cushion, at 0-degree tilt, 80 degrees recline and 53 cm seat height from floor to top cushion. Measurement 2 is from a Netti AdaptPro seat plate with Netti Uno seat cushion, at 0-degree tilt, 80 degrees recline and 53 cm seat height from floor to top cushion.

The good sitting position is thereby supported and maintained. The result of the measurement shows less pressure on vulnerable areas such as the tailbone and seat bones. Netti AdaptPro uses our well-known Netti Seating System with pressure-relieving seat cushions and our back cushions in different designs according to the user's needs.
REDUCED SHEAR FORCES PROTECTS THE SKIN
Ergonomically correct positioned hinge points at the hip and knee joints make it possible for the user to keep the correct seating position over time â€“ also when the seating position is changed, and the back is reclined, or the leg supports are elevated. Situations that otherwise could result in shear and sliding with the risk of discomfort and skin damage.
CORRECT POSITION OF THE BACK HINGE
Ergonomically correct positioned hinge points at the hip and knee joints make it possible for the user to keep the correct seating position over time – also when the seating position is changed, and the back is reclined, or the leg supports are elevated. Situations that otherwise could result in shear and sliding with the risk of discomfort and skin damage.
CORRECT POSITION OF THE BACK HINGE
Ergonomic back design with the correct hinge point at the hip ensures that there is no friction of the skin against the back cushion when reclined, which minimizes shear forces and tissue deformation.
CORRECT POSITION OF THE KNEE
Also the user's knee joint and the leg support hinge point are the same - this minimizes the risk of sliding by use of back recline and elevation of the leg supports
EXTRA STABILITY WHEN TILTED
INCREDIBLY STABLE AND SAFE, EVEN WHEN FULLY TILTED AND RECLINED
The Netti Dynamic AdaptPro has a unique feature with an automatically adjusted foot print. Meaning small foot print for easy maneuvering - but enlarged foot print when the chair is tilted for extra stability and safety for the user.
A compact frame and short wheelbase are often the starting points for achieving the best handling characteristics. Extended wheelbase, on the other hand, is a prerequisite for stability and security in the seat when a large tilt angle is offered. With Netti Dynamic AdaptPro's patented frame construction, we have created the perfect balance between the two extremes.
PATENTED WHEEL FOOTPRINT
Netti Dynamic AdaptPro's unique stability is created by the frame's wheel footprint - the distance between the wheels - as this is automatically extended from 375 mm to a full 465 mm when the chair is tilted 30°. At the same time, the length of the anti tipper is automatically adjusted. Netti AdaptPro is offered with a total tilt angle of 30°- a prerequisite for creating variation in the user's sitting position and thus enabling the user to sit longer in the chair.
MAXIMUM VARIATION AND RELIEF
30° TILT AND 87°-133° RECLINE
Netti AdaptPro is equipped with several well-known but also new ergonomic solutions for the angular adjustment of the back, arm and leg supports.
Tilt and recline are the basis of a comfort wheelchair and allow the user to vary sitting position over time, maintain stability, stimulate ADL (Activities of Daily Living) and protect the skin. Clinical studies show that the use of tilt and recline can help reduce shear and sliding.
BIO-DYNAMIC ARM SUPPORTS
The wheelchair's arm supports are bio-dynamic that follow the seat angle as they are mounted on the back itself and thus follow the back when reclining, giving the user security and support for the arms in all positions. This provides better support and pressure distribution.
EVEN BETTER CONTACT BETWEEN USER AND CAREGIVER
ONE-HAND OPERATED HANDLES
Netti AdaptPro supports the close contact between user and carer during positioning. The handles for tilt and recline are easily adjusted with one hand, when standing by the side of the wheelchair. This enables eye contact and gives the user a feeling of safety during positioning.
The new tilt and recline handles, revolving arm supports,
and readable scales make everyday life easier for family and carers whilst providing an engaging experience with the user.
READ-OFF SCALES MAKES IT EASY TO HANDLE
On our Netti Grandis leg supports you will also find the red markings of the control points, which together with the easy-to-read adjustment scales of the control points, make use intuitive. The patented tapered extension pieces ensure easy installation of the leg supports. The footplate design with angle and depth adjustment ensures that asymmetric foot positions can be delivered and supported safely and securely. Optional footboard, foot box, padding and amputation leg supports are available.
