M. has to reposition himself constantly. Maximum sitting time without repositioning is approximately 5 minutes. M. also slides out of the chair due to foot propelling. After every movement, even if it’s short distance (5 meters), he has to reposition himself.
To help M. with these problems, it was tried to train him to contain a better sitting posture in the wheelchair. M. is still hopeful that he will walk again after his rehabilitation process. Because of M.’s idea of walking again in the future, his wheelchair use is not optimal, but he does not care. The chances of M. walking again in the future are very small, but he does not want to believe this. Therefore the problem of sliding and repositioning continue to stay the same.
