Dynamic seating Seating solutions where movement within the seating system is possible, due to force generated by the user, is called dynamic seating. The dynamic back on the R82 x:panda absorbs the energy of extensions and allows the child to return to an upright seating position, without compromising the position of the pelvic. A study investigating the R82 x:panda, found indications that the dynamic back may be associated with better postural control and less involuntary arm movements * . To ensure the best match between the user and the resistance provided by the gas strut please use the table below. The gas strut - evaluate the resistance If the child are able to push the back of the seat too easily to its maximum, then consider a gasspring with more resistance. If the child find it difficult to push the the back of the seat backwards, then consider a gasspring with less resistance. There may be large day-to-day and hour-to-hour differences in the child’s involuntary movements, so it may be a good idea to observe the child over several days. x:panda seat size Size 1 Size 2 Size 3 Size 4 Less strong 50 N 50 N — — Standard 100 N 100 N 150 N 350 N Learn more in our video about x:panda recline and dynamic back by clicking or scanning the QR code below: Stronger 150 N 150 N 250 N 450 N * Much stronger — — 300 N 550 N * * Special order only Watch the video about x:panda gasspring replacement by clicking or scanning the QR code below: * References: Cimolin V, Piccinini L, Avellis M, et al. 3D.
