Power Standing for Young People: Where are we at?

Recent advances in technology have seen a number of power standing wheelchairs introduced to the market, and have us contemplating their potential use, particularly for school aged students.  Unfortunately use of power stand up chairs is limited due to their high cost, where sound clinical rationale is required to justify their cost effectiveness.

In this presentation we will look at what we currently know about power standing for young people, looking at available research and feedback from therapists and end users, and how we might use this information to support completion of relevant funding documentation.

This webinar is based on the presentation given at the Assistive Technology Suppliers of New Zealand Expo in July 2021.

Panelist:
Rachel Maher: Clinical Education Specialist Permobil APAC
