Beyond the Seat

Aspects of posture, support, pressure and function must be considered in the equipment selection process. Many of these factors are interrelated, often influencing each other. As consumers strive for independence, posture effects functional activities such as propulsion and transfers as well as respiration, digestion and bowel & bladder systems. In addition, skin integrity is impacted by pressure distribution and is also dependent upon physiologic systems to maintain or regain that integrity. It is not enough to think linearly. This course is designed for basic to intermediate level clinicians and equipment providers who want to revisit the interlocking components of seated posture and mobility. Selecting the cushion and back support is ultimately more efficient when the broad scope of intrinsic factors is kept in focus.

Appropriate technology application can greatly enhance the functional outcomes for clients who utilize seating and wheeled mobility systems. Once the mat assessment is completed, it is necessary to interpret that data and convert it to equipment selection & configuration. Common seated postures will be presented, and the principles of accommodation or reduction of orthopedic changes will be presented. Considerations for the selection of seat cushions and back supports with the goal of maximizing consumer function will be reviewed using a clinical approach.

This course follows the guidelines published in the "RESNA Wheelchair Service Provision Guide."

Exploring Changing Needs

Power wheelchairs are more than just mobility. This webinar will discuss Power Wheelchair electronics and how to ensure the power wheelchair can grow and change with the changing needs of a patient.

How a patient interacts with a wheelchair is a very personal thing.  How we organize information and where we like our items stored is very personal. LiNX electronics allows us to arrange Profiles and Functions in unique ways to support the very personal and customized preferences of patients. This course will focus on how to customize those Profiles and Functions, how to set the chair to be navigated without the need for any swiping, button pressing or switches, and how to program a switch for a dedicated Tilt.  These are simple solutions for customizing and personalizing the interface for the patient and enhancing their experience with LiNX electronics.
