Course Description: This comprehensive program is designed to provide immediately applicable concepts to anyone involved in the assessment and prescription of seating and mobility technology. The focus of discussion will be on principles and practices as they relate to seating and wheeled mobility. The assessment process will be reviewing from initial client contact through the final equipment prescription. Special emphasis will be placed on the value of the "hand on" assessment transitioning into how to translate the assessment findings into necessary product parameters. Considerations for the selection of seat cushions, using a clinical and scientific approach, as well as back supports and manual mobility will be reviewed. Case studies as well as interactive discussion will emphasize the importance of using this approach as we strive to justify and be accountable for everything prescribed. This course will facilitate critical thinking and assist therapists in confident decision-making, clear documentation and positive objective outcomes.
