In the past, I have written about wheelchair cushions and how materials and product design affect skin protection. This month, I would like to focus on weight shifting and its role in skin protection.
Before we address the impact of weight shifting on pressure management, let’s have a brief review of what happens to our bodies when we sit, assuming we are sitting with a neutral pelvis; that is, that the pelvis is not tilted anteriorly or posteriorly. When we sit with a neutral pelvis, the ischial tuberosities are the lowest point on the pelvis.
