Introduction to Manual Wheelchairs

Description:

This webinar is designed as an introduction to self-propelled manual wheelchairs. Where do we begin? How do we know if our client is appropriate for propelling a manual wheelchair? Should I look at a folding or rigid manual wheelchair? Why does it matter what kind of wheelchair I get? What does it mean to really fit the wheelchair to the individual? These are a few of the questions we will be answering as we help promote best-practice manual wheelchair application for successful clinical outcomes.

Mobility and the Shoulder: A look into how Permobil products play a role in shoulder health, function and independence

Description:

The shoulder is often considered when determining appropriateness of manual mobility, but do we consider the impacts of other types of seating and mobility equipment on the shoulder? How does the client’s access to their environment, their posture, and their support surface impact the shoulder? This webinar will begin with a review of shoulder anatomy and physiology. Following a review, we will discuss how the Permobil products – power wheelchairs, seating and positioning products, manual wheelchairs, and power assist can directly impact shoulder health and function. By the end of the webinar, the attendee should be able to better understand how equipment directly impacts the shoulder and the client’s functional independence.
