Event Details

 

Aidacare Professional Training with Sunrise Medical

 

APT Free Seminar:

Arrival: 9:30am

All Day Session: 10:00am to 3:00pm 

CASE BY CASE - POWER WHEELCHAIR AND SEATING EVALUATION FROM INITIAL ASSESSMENT TO FINAL PRESCRIPTION. BUILDING CONFIDENCE THROUGH PRACTICE - ADULT

This is an intermediate course addressing the seating and wheelchair mobility needs of the adult population. We will take the process from the beginning including client assessment, postural mat evaluation and possible solutions for abnormal postures.  We’ll then translate this information into product prescription.  This is an interactive course: the day will include hands-on practice with each other and, to finish, hands-on practice with a client.  At the end of this workshop, participants will feel confident in assessing and prescribing seating systems and wheelchairs for the adult client.
