Postural care is a way of preserving and re-establishing body shape for people with movement difficulties. The principles of posture care are about ensuring that everybody with movement difficulties has their body shape protected over a 24-hour period, in all settings, to maintain or regain good body shape and reduce the risk of further deterioration and secondary complications”

Failure to protect a patient’s body position can have the following consequences:

Contractures Premature death Pressure on internal organs Scoliosis Difficulty eating and breathing Spacity Pressure Injuries

‘’Changes in body shape, particularly chest distortion, result in a poor quality of life, including problems with breathing and eating, and can lead to premature death. Body distortion is also costly in terms of equipment and increasingly complicated medical intervention.’’
