JOANA SANTIAGO, Medifab
Joana Santiago completed her training in Occupational Therapy in Portugal in 2004. Her initial clinical practice enabled her to work closely with a diverse range of clients with neurological and traumatic injuries. From this experience, she developed a passion for Seating and Positioning equipment as she understands that a comprehensive postural management can have a strong influence on functionality, health and the ability to lead a
positive lifestyle! Over the past 10 years, Joana has worked within the Assistive Technology industry in 5 different countries and takes pride in her flexible ability to reach good clinical outcomes by considering the individual, cultural and social needs of those she works with. She is now based in Australia as a Clinical Business Development for Medifab where she is able to have a positive influence on the development, supply and training of their extensive range of products. Joana has presented internationally, including at the European Seating Symposium and Asia-Pacific Occupational Therapy Congress and nationally at different in-services to seating clinics, at the Australian Assistive Technology Conference and at ATSA Independent Living EXPO.
