APT Free Seminar: How to tackle wheeled mobility & seating assessments with confidence!

This intermediate level workshop allows professionals the opportunity to enhance their clinical reasoning skills in determining the optimal seating and positioning strategy when dealing with clients with complex postural and mobility needs. It applies evidence-based knowledge to seating and postural management and aims to guide health professionals through the seating process, from the postural MAT assessment to the prescription/ final product set up. Participants can also expand their practical knowledge and skills with seating and positioning by hands on moments during the session. 


Topics covered: 

- Principles of posture and seating 

- Biomechanics as applied to posture management 

- Seating and positioning assessment process 

- MAT assessment 

- Translating findings into equipment set up 

- Case presentations and problem solving 

SPEX Workshops are suitable for therapists, rehab engineers and other healthcare professionals interested in learning more about assessing, prescribing and setting up postural equipment for adults with asymmetric postures.
