Case by Case: Taking Wheelchair and Seating Evaluation from Initial Assessment to Final Prescription

Case by Case: Taking Wheelchair and Seating Evaluation from Initial Assessment to Final Prescription

BUILDING CONFIDENCE THROUGH PRACTICE – Adult

5 CPD HOURS

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 will address:

  • Critical components in adult wheelchairs to maximise 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.
