Examples of how 24 hour postural solutions may work

24 HOUR APPROACH BEFORE

Standard implementation of a 24 hour approach for a client who is wheelchair dependant

Here we can see how an individual (before the implementation of a 24 hour approach) may have spent his or her day

24 HOUR APPROACH AFTER - EXAMPLE 1

The implementation of a 24 hour approach for a client who may be able to walk and stand for short periods during the day

A programme for the client who has the ability to walk and stand:  

  • A programme would be designed in conjunction with the local physiotherapist, who is implementing a daily walking programme (using a walking frame) and a standing programme (using an appropriately set-up standing frame).  
  • The aim is for the programme to be lead and monitored by the local physiotherapist and implemented by the carers.  
  • Other areas considered are slings, hoisting, spasticity management, splinting and clothing adaptations.
