Description

Internationally renowned educator

Sharon Sutherland-Pratt

Presents a knowledge filled day about wheelchair seating & back supports

Selecting a Wheelchair Seat Cushion & Back Support

What is the process? What tools do we have to assist us & what factors should we consider?


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the goals of seating as they relate to the seat cushion and back support.

  • Interactive case example discussion based on field experiences.

  • See several case examples showing how a Vicair cushion is used effectively.

  • How to adjust a Vicair cushion, doing a hand check on a Vicair cushion.

Seminar Description

This program is designed to provide immediately applicable concepts to anyone involved in the assessment and prescription of seating technology. The focus of discussion will be on principles and practices as they relate to seating/positioning and with a special emphasis on skin integrity and postural
management.

Considerations for the selection of seat cushions and back supports using a clinical and scientific approach, will be reviewed. Not only will we as a group identify the key parameters for seat cushions and back supports being prescribed with regard to the results of our clinical assessment but also to the application of the prescribed items.
Interactive discussion will emphasize the importance of using this approach as we strive to justify and be accountable for everything prescribed.

This course will facilitate critical thinking and assist therapists in confident decision-making, clear documentation and positive objective outcomes.
