General Overview:

This one-hour, live course is intended to facilitate clinicians and equipment suppliers’ understanding of how to be successful in the provision of best practice seating and positioning solutions for complex rehabilitation technology (CRT).  In many settings, where time and resources are limited, the potential exists to provide low end seating and positioning products versus what the client may truly need. This course is intended to be an overview to transitioning your practice from general use and standard equipment to the ideas of best practice tissue protection and proper postural support and positioning.

This course will utilize clinical examples to assist the clinical decision-making process about client needs, how outcomes can be improved, and how to navigate the CRT provision landscape. Upon completion of this course, clinicians will have a better understanding of how to initiate referrals and recommend seating and positioning solutions for CRT to optimize client outcomes.

CEU Objectives: By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:Describe three indications a person may need an evaluation for manual wheelchair complex rehabilitation technology (CRT).

    1. Identify three postural limitations that can impact your choice of seating and positioning products.
    2. Utilize the ICF model to identify two situations when seating and positioning should be evaluated.
    3. Discuss two examples of how seating and positioning products can inhibit or improve patient function within their mobility system.
    4. Describe standard seating and mobility measurements as they apply to seating and positioning.


*This course is presented via live stream lecture only.
