What is Pelvic Support?
The pelvis is the key to postural alignment as it dictates the position of the trunk, head, and extremities. A common saying is, "What you see at the hips, you see at the lips". Pelvic stabilization is crucial for the individual to obtain optimal postural support, control, and ultimately, function. Incorrect positioning of the pelvis can lead to:
- Anterior Pelvic Tilt
- Posterior Pelvic Tilt
- Pelvic Elevation
- Pelvic Obliquity
- Pelvic Rotation
Disabled children are often unable to achieve pelvic and trunk stability independently, hence various external stabilization devices are used. Our lateral hip and pelvic supports come in unique configurations with models that allow for various adjustments in addition to the more standard models commonly used in seating today.
