APT Free Seminar:

Arrival: 9.30am

All Day Session: 10:00am to 3:00pm 

MOBILITY FOR CLIENTS WITH NEUROLOGIC IMPAIRMENT 

Clients with neurologic impairments frequently present with complex seating and mobility needs. Along with the physical deficits that warrant the use of a mobility device, cognitive, visual, and postural impairments further complicate equipment prescription. Even the process of determining the right mobility device (power vs. upright manual vs. dependent device) can be a bit daunting. This all day workshop will focus on clients with acquired brain injuries (CVA, TBI, etc.), following a discussion on the process for determining the most appropriate device. Time will be spent discussing the process for scripting an upright manual wheelchair. There will be hands-on time with equipment and the measuring process as well.  The afternoon will be dedicated to discussing the visual and cognitive barriers to independent mobility as well as training strategies to increase success in wheelchair skills for increased independence.
