Being properly positioned in a wheelchair is vitally important. If a wheelchair user isn’t positioned properly, they will not only contend with pain/discomfort and fatigue easier but can experience a number of other health issues like skin breakdown, reduced ability to breathe deeply or swallow, or have trouble balancing. Poor positioning also increases the risk for spinal curvature.
