The Case for Wheels:
Selecting the Clinically Appropriate Base

This course builds a clinical and practical foundation to build from when going through the process of selecting the appropriate power mobility device. Participants will begin by starting from the ground up with the physical capabilities and performance characteristics of rear wheel drive, mid-wheel drive, and front wheel drive; gaining an understanding of how each configuration behaves within differing environments. Participants will then interact within small focus groups, working hands-on with interactive technology and actual power wheelchairs, to solve specific challenges that are based out of actual case study.

Roll Playing:
Early Intervention in Wheeled Mobility

Play is often described as the work of children and is one of the primary ways in which children learn. Unfortunately for many children with physical limitations engaging in activities including play without the support of adaptive equipment is not possible. In addition, the lack of proper positioning and mobility equipment can have a significant impact on a child’s respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, muscular skeletal system, and develop skills (e.g. communication, cognition, social emotional, etc.).
During this two-hour seminar participants will learn about the roll seating and mobility plays in a child’s development, the complete evaluation process, and complex rehabilitation technology (CRT) available specifically for infants to young children as well as the clinical application of the equipment discussed.

Linda is excited to bring her experience providing seating and mobility services to her new role at Sunrise Medical by providing education and training to therapists, ATPs and the community.
