A seated position and feeding movements are interdependent and can worsen an existing dysphagia. Their management can directly influence a patientís handicap and will decrease complications. Positioning is a clinical process aiming at placing a person having postural disorders, and will ensure a seating adapted to that person, comfortable and functional, authorizing mobility and independence. It requires a concomitant methodology: evaluation, test, validation, control, for a material adapted to the person and a readjustment of the gesture.
