Abstract

Positioning and posture underpin the ability to function and access the environment. Sustained poor positioning can have severe and life threatening complications for those who have a limited ability to change position. It can lead to a reduced ability to engage in meaningful activities, thus impacting on the quality of life of the individual. Twenty four hour positioning is an occupational therapy intervention which aims at correcting or maintaining posture to ensure function is maintained. In doing so it can prevent complications, thus reducing cost to the healthcare system.
