Contractures, postural deviations, pain and sleep disturbance impact individuals with neurodisabilities and therefore concern occupational therapists. 24-7 PCM offers a non-invasive, empowering approach to address these problems and support therapeutic goals, in low resource areas. Findings indicated that improvement in measures of body symmetry and pain reduction were associated with adherence to a night-time positioning intervention, in the majority of cases without compromising sleep.
