About this event

Kindly hosted at Mildura Grand Hotel by

Aidacare Healthcare Equipment, Mildura

Manual wheelchairs, power wheelchairs and power assist options all have their place within the industry. For some of our clients, it can be an easy choice of which option might be best, but for others this decision can feel overwhelming. Ensuring the right match between the user and the product is essential in achieving the best outcome by meeting the user’s needs and goals.

This full-day session will begin with a look into the assessment. We will go into detail, the key questions and information required to help guide what options might be best for our client. Then, we will take a look into each mobility option: Manual wheelchairs, power wheelchair and power assist options. This will include hands-on time with the products. We will finish the day by bringing all the information together and work through case examples.


Rika Millen

Permobil Clinical Education Specialist

Occupational Therapist

Rika Millen joined Permobil in May 2022, as a Clinical Services Specialist. After graduating from Western Sydney University in 2014, with a Bachelor of Health Science/Master of Occupational Therapy, Rika began working at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney. After rotating through a range of clinical areas, Rika moved into the Spinal Injuries Unit, where her passion for seating and assistive technology was ignited.

Rika has since worked closely with clients and therapists across Seating Clinic, Spinal Pressure Care Clinic and the Spinal Injuries Unit to devise customised seating solutions to enable clients to reach their goals.

Most recently working as the OT Team Leader in the Spinal Injuries Unit, Rika developed a passion for teaching and mentoring clinicians, which she hopes to develop and expand on in her new role at Permobil. Outside of work you’ll find Rika running, hiking, skiing or working on her golf handicap.
