Case by Case – Taking Wheelchair and Seating Evaluation

Addressing the seating and wheelchair mobility needs of the adult population

Addressing the seating and wheelchair mobility needs of the adult population

This is an intermediate course addressing the seating and wheelchair mobility needs of the adult population. We will take the process from the beginning: including client assessment, postural mat evaluation and possible solutions for abnormal postures.  We’ll then translate this information into product prescription.   This course will offer an opportunity to work through adult wheelchair prescription in a clear, step-by-step process designed to support successful outcomes.  We’ll address:

  • Critical components in adult wheelchairs to maximize health, posture and function
  • Creating genuine seating and mobility solutions in the real world – considering patient desires, abilities and funding restrictions
  • Key features and configuration available on Quickie wheelchairs

At the end of this workshop, participants will feel confident in assessing and prescribing seating systems and wheelchairs for the adult client.
