APT Free Seminar: How to tackle wheeled mobility & seating assessments with confidence!Registration: 9:00am

Clinical Session: 9:30am to 3:00pm

This is an intermediate course addressing the postural and mobility needs of the paediatric population while considering all 24 hours of the day. We will take the process from the beginning: including client assessment and postural mat evaluation.  We’ll consider tone, spasticity, growth and abnormal postures.  We’ll then translate this information into assistive technology options to promote function and participation.   

This course will offer an opportunity to work through paediatric seating and mobility prescription in a clear, step-by-step process designed to support successful outcomes.  Clinicians will understand:

The power of 24 hour posture support
Postural management of paediatric clients while considering growth, ease of use, participation
How to maximise health, posture and function for paediatric clients
Critical components to consider in paediatric wheelchairs
Key features in Leckey Sleep and Seating Systems
Key features of Leckey Standing Systems
Key features and configuration available on Zippie Paediatric wheelchairs

At the end of this workshop, participants will feel confident in assessing and prescribing seating systems and wheelchairs for the paediatric client.
