APT Free Seminar:
All Day Session: 10:00am to 3:00pm
THE FUNCTIONAL BENEFITS OF STANDING
- What are the functional benefits of standing?
- Why bother with anterior tilt?
- Does my client even have a functional need for a seat lift or recline?
This course aims to present the functional benefits of some of the less commonly prescribed seat functions. With the advent of new funding sources – it is critical for therapists to be able to determine what features are unnecessary versus those that have the potential to increase independence and improve a client’s quality of life. A review of the evidence for power seat functions will be provided, along with case studies that highlight functional benefits achieved through each feature. Methods to justify additional components to funding sources will be reviewed. Additionally, this course will discuss emerging technology that has to potential to improve client outcomes – and how this technology can be used to facilitate therapeutic goals.
