ICON A1 users often report that pains from which they have suffered in years, has reduced drastically, and in some cases even disappeared completely, few months after they started using the ICON A1 wheelchair.
There are no clinical studies made to prove such a claim and the claim is based on theoretical studies of suspension wheelchairs and from feedback from singular wheelchair users.

Newly injuried Spinal Cord patients and Muscle Dystrophy patients looses body mass over the years.
People with neurodegenerative conditions like Sclerosis, or elderly people can change body posture rapidly over time. Just like some people gain weight or loose weight as time passes by. Children grows and the need to adapt the wheelchair accordingly is obvious.
