About this event

You Picked the Right Manual Wheelchair Frame

Don't Stop There

MANUAL WHEELCHAIR PRESCRIPTION AND CLIENT SKILLS TRAINING

5 CPD HOURS

Learn how to prescribe and configure manual wheelchairs to maximize independence, function and long-term health with avoidance of overuse injuries. Topics will include assessment strategies, frame selection, configuration to promote safe, functional independence in an active manual wheelchair. We’ll experience, through trial and interaction, how different frame styles and set ups affect propulsion, comfort and ultimately client function. In the second half of the session, the attendees will use properly configured chairs to put their skills to the test. In small groups, we’ll practice instruction and completion of a variety of wheelchair skills from propulsion to wheelies, transfer strategies and more. We will discuss the importance of these skills in everyday life and present strategies for instruction.

We’ll also address “aging with a disability” and disease progression – what options are available for clients when pushing independently becomes too difficult or inefficient?

Come Ready for Action - this course is jam-packed with hands-on learning opportunities.
