It is important to identify the reason for the leaning posture. Is the pelvis involved and is this the origin of the leaning posture? Or is it caused by lateral flexion of the spine? Can the user correct their leaning posture or is it fixed? Does the user always lean to the same side or does it depend on the activity or time of day? The goal should be to increase sitting tolerance and to help create a comfortable and stable posture while supporting the leaning posture.
