Posture and Postural Tendencies
What's the difference?
Presented by Tom Hetzel, PT, ATP
This one-day training program is designed for health care professionals (PT, OT, ATPs, etc.) and suppliers who are directly involved in the recommendation and provision of wheeled mobility and seating products.
This one-day course is designed to educate therapists and rehab technology suppliers in both traditional and orthotic and prosthetic influenced approaches to wheelchair seating.
This wheelchair seating course will sharpen your skills regardless of the amount of experience you have. Even the most basic principles are presented in a new and compelling fashion. You will be challenged to reconsider how you think about postural control and skin care in the seated posture.
No matter what population you serve, you are bound to discover some refreshing concepts and strategies to better address your clients’ needs.
Ride Designs and Aspen Seating incorporate a healthy dose of orthotic and prosthetic principles that give their products and services unique advantages over traditional seating options. No longer are you forced to choose between aggressive postural support and skin care as our approach tackles both issues without compromise. Ride Designs’ seating systems utilize a blend of orthotic, prosthetic and traditional seating approaches to provide lightweight, breathable, adjustable, seating systems unlike anything available in today’s market.
Enrollment is limited to guarantee everyone individualized attention. Well-structured hands-on activities with actual wheelchair users will foster the confidence needed to transfer what you have learned into your practice.
