Dycem non-slip material is the ideal solution to getting and staying in the most comfortable sitting position. Occupational Therapist Jen agrees! Read about how she solves this problem in practice –
Achieving the perfect sitting position is never easy and difficult to maintain for long periods. It is important that we sit in a good position to avoid pain, deformities and problems with breathing and digestion. Gravity, fidgeting, tiredness, muscle tone and fabric texture are all contributing factors to someone moving out of their optimum position.
Many of us can adjust our position independently and return to sitting comfortably, but there are some of us who can’t. For those who can’t move themselves back independently, there is a continuous search for a product that stops them moving into awkward, uncomfortable positions.
One solution is to use Dycem. It can be a real asset in helping to overcome the challenge of slipping cushions, supports and body parts! Dycem can be placed under, between or on top of cushions, on armrests, backrests and footrests to stabilise either the cushion or body part. It can also be positioned on the floor to stop feet slipping.
Dycem reel material or netting can be cut to the required size and therefore used discreetly if needed. There are a variety of colour options to either contrast or blend in with the furniture depending on the individual’s need. Both the reel and netting can be washed, repositioned and reused, making them a cost effective solution to seating problems.
Being able to sit comfortably is vitally important for social, psychological and physical reasons and Dycem can help in being able to achieve the optimum sitting position.
