Session: 9:30am to 3:00pm
Positioning and posture underpin the ability to function and access the environment. We know that sustained poor positioning can have severe and life-threatening complications for those who have a limited ability to change position.
Ensuring appropriate prescription and set up of an effective seating system for people with complex postural needs is paramount!
This intermediate level workshop aims to support therapists in developing assessment and prescription strategies to ensure postural and functional goals of those with complex needs. The learning process will be facilitated by hands-on moments where participants will have the opportunity to practice with colleagues, including customising SPEX Seating products based on real case studies.
During this interactive day, participants will learn about:
• Posture Management
• Human Biomechanics
• Pressure Management
• Seating Assessment Process – from the identification of individual risks factors to a comprehensive postural MAT evaluation
• Discussion of possible solutions based on assessment findings to ensure the goals are met
• Set up and configuration of primary and secondary support surfaces from SPEX Seating range
