Description

Active Rehab presents the Specialised Seating Clinic

Dealing with clients with complex postual needs, we all want to deliver the best solution to meet the clients needs, goals and expectations. In this session we will be looking at the opportunity for therapists to enhance their clinical reasoning skills in determining the optimal seating and positioning requirements for their clients. Sharing knowledge and analysing real case studies have been proven to build confidence.

Both presenters will cover concepts such as client assessment, pressure management and postual control and how to apply the fundamentals of seating and positioning.

A fantastic opportunity to hear from international presenters with decades of clinical experience.
