Event description

Description



Fisher Lane Mobility are excited to welcome Magdalena Love and Nick Fraser from Permobil to present
"Diving into the Basics".

The session (11:00am - 3:00pm) will be held at AU79 Cafe (27-29 Nicholson Street, Abbotsford) and will include refreshments and a light lunch.

Certificates of participation will be provided to ensure your accumulation of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) hours.

Agenda

  • Client centred equipment prescription
  • Where is my drive wheel and why does it matter?
  • Programming power wheelchairs: An introduction
  • Hands on driving practice
  • NDIS and Power Seat Functions: What is reasonable?
  • Questions / Optional Hands-on Time

This workshop is best suited to established therapists seeking to develop their clinical scripted seating skills.
* Not recommended for student level

This session will take a more in-depth look at power mobility options for clients. Starting from the base up, case studies and practical strategies will be used to show how different drive wheel configurations affect outcomes. Programming parameters to optimise client driving skills will be reviewed and clinicians will have the chance to feel the effects of programming changes.

The session will focus on the options for power seat functions – including a review of the current evidence as well as case studies that highlight functional goals achieved by gaining access to these seat functions. Time will be spent on discussing resources available to get these options funded through the NIDS.

After this course, clinicians should be able to:

  • Differentiate at least three different driving techniques for navigating a FWD power wheelchair versus a MWD within the home and community.
  • Summarize three programming parameters commonly modified and how they impact functional outcomes.
  • Differentiate two benefits and potential drawbacks of five power seat functions.
  • Formulate three reasons why integrating a standing feature into a client’s wheelchair base is beneficial to their health, function, and participation.
