About the event

3:00 PM: Balancing Function and Independence: Clinical Considerations for Power Adjustable Seat 

Heigh and Anterior Tilt  (0.2 CEU)  Power wheelchairs are designed to augment function when functional 

mobility is compromised or lost. For end users with complex needs, the power wheelchair can also augment 

repositioning and pressure relief. This course will dive into the various options for power positioning, clinical 

benefits, various access methods, and the research supporting the need for power positioning technology. 

5:00 PM Session 3: Clinical Considerations for Mobility and Seating Selection for the Geriatric and 

Chronic Deconditioning Population Part 1  (0.1 CEU)  Ambulatory aids, manual wheelchairs, scooters 

(POVs), and power wheelchairs are designed to augment function when functional mobility is compromised 

or lost.  For many geriatric end-users there is not only medical diagnosis and presentation, but also aging with 

a disability, additional comorbidities, on top of general deconditioning related to age that all play significant 

roles in the relationship to the end-user and their mobility equipment.   This course will focus on the goals, 

focus, and recommendations for this population. 

Instructor:  Alex Chesney, OTR/L  ATP/SMS
