Hands-on! Wheelchair Seating and Positioning Seminar

PROGRAM DETAILS

One of the Few Hands-On Interactive Seating Courses!

There are an estimated 1.4 million Americans utilizing wheelchairs in the United States to achieve improved independence. For health care workers, the task of evaluating the client, determining needs, selecting the most appropriate equipment, and, when applicable, troubleshooting to improve a client's fit and function can oftentimes be intimidating. Often, we are faced with clients who present with notable orthopedic issues, deformities, and/or asymmetries coupled with limited funding or financial resources, making our intervention much more challenging.

This one-day seminar was produced by Dr. Kirsten Davin, the creator of the long running seminar, Let's Roll! The Art of Performing Seating and Mobility Evaluations, which has reached over 9,500 therapists across the United States. Hands-on! Wheelchair Seating and Positioning is designed to provide health care professionals and therapists with a hands-on, working knowledge of wheelchair seating and positioning systems. Participants will be able to identify postural issues and deformities which may be present within a client and incorporate those considerations into the creation of a custom seating system. Hands-on, interactive techniques will be implemented as attendees will personally be adapting, carving, and creating mock seating systems and, in the process, gain valuable knowledge that can be implemented immediately in clinic. Attendees will learn about the benefits of pressure mapping and have the opportunity to experience pressure mapping first-hand. This is a valuable course for anyone who faces challenging seating and positioning issues in clinic. Attendees will leave with a multitude of tangible knowledge, tips, and cost saving techniques which can be put to immediate use. For those interested in sitting for RESNA's Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) or Seating and Mobility Specialist (SMS) examinations, this course is an absolute must!

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Examine the major content areas of RESNA's Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) and Seating and Mobility Specialist (SMS) examinations and utilize review questions to develop a strong knowledge base in preparation for passing both the ATP and SMS exams
• Experience a hands-on understanding of pressure mapping including the benefits associated with the use of pressure mapping for purposes of client evaluation, education, and troubleshooting
• Identify and measure pelvic and spinal asymmetries in adult and pediatric populations and create custom seating systems and supports to address such issues
• Discuss the process of selecting and implementing various cervical support systems for adult and pediatric populations
• Gain hands-on knowledge of how to create custom seating options for clients on a very limited budget


What You Should Bring: Participants are asked to bring scissors, a utility knife, and a small measuring tape, for the hands-on, lab portion of the seminar. In addition, comfortable clothing is recommended for attendees.

TESTIMONIALS

Absolutely the best course I have attended in 23 years of physical therapy practice! Kirsten makes it fun and entertaining, and is extraordinarily knowledgeable in her field. I would definitely attend any course she teaches!  Mark R., DPT, Ft. Meyers, FL

Finally, a hands-on, interactive course in the seating world! Thank you for giving us real-life, usable information and techniques that I can go home and apply tomorrow.  Chelsea M., OTDR/L, Bothell, WA

An excellent course for all experience levels. Kirsten is an amazing presenter, who provided us with an abundance of material in an easy-to-understand manner. I work in a setting with very limited funding sources. Thank you, Kirsten, for giving me a lot of cost-efficient ideas to try with my clients when money is tight. Brock S., COTA, Coronado, CA
