IC29: What Happens When You Sit? Explaining Seated Buttocks Deformation

This workshop will review the literature about the impact of tissue deformation on tissue breakdown, and relate that knowledge to emerging information on the seated buttocks anatomy and tissue deformation. Which tissues remain loaded under at-risk sites during sitting, and which are pushed out of the way? This workshop will also present new data that illustrate how different wheelchair cushions support the buttocks, as well as how slouching impacts the tissues under the pelvis.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to;

Sharon Eve Sonenblum, PhD
Georgia Institute of Technology
Atlanta, GA
United States

Dr. Sonenblum is a Senior Research Scientist and bioengineer in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech. She has spent more than a decade involved in research on seating and mobility, leading numerous projects during that time, including monitoring pressure relief behavior and measuring the physiological benefits of pressure reliefs. Dr. Sonenblum is also the principal investigator on a study to investigate differences in seated 3D buttocks deformation across individuals.
