Often children are prescribed commercially available seating devices which does not solve the problem in severely involved child. Here we demonstrate how an Occupational therapist working in a rehabilitation setting optimized seating device by custom made seating device components in modifying difficult posture in fully dependent child having very poor motor and cognitive function. Interdisciplinary team approach and individualized therapeutic seating program was effective in assisting the parents and child in meeting their positioning needs. The effectiveness of these seating solutions was assessed on parent questionnaire which showed improvement in positioning and social interaction.
