Matrx E2 Back Ripple Effect

Duration: 30 Minutes

Sign up Code: e2ripple

The clinicians usually strive to choose back support products that maximize postural support and stability. Recently, however, we hear more and more questions related to temperature and humidity. Several clinical conditions involving impaired innervation of sweat glands impact sweating function and contribute to increased core temperatures and sensitivity to heat. The new E2 Back with ripple foam was developed with the goal of addressing microclimate without deviating from the Matrx® no-maintenance product philosophy. In this session, we will compare thermo-performance of slab foam versus ripple foam and will describe our findings from four different scenarios the participants were subjected to. We will share the results of the clinical study that demonstrated reductions of both skin temperatures and sweating with the ripple foam.

The Power of LiNX in the Clinic

Duration: 1 hour

Wheelchair manufacturers each use a specific electronics platform on their power wheelchairs. These electronics have unique differences between them. These differences can be overlooked when one makes an assumption that, “they all do the same thing”. While that is true to a degree, how those “things” are managed and navigated by the patient can be VERY different. LiNX® electronics offers some unique features and opportunities for customization and personalization that can enhance independence and satisfaction for the patient. This course will highlight some of those features that may play a role in the success and independence of the patient. This is a course that will focus on the clinical benefits of LiNX® and will not be going into specific programming instructions, rather, focusing on the features and their impact for the patient.

Beyond the Seat

Duration: 1 hour

Sign up Code: beyondod

Credit: .1 CEU

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.
