Royal Rehab (Clive Austin Conference Centre), 235 Morrison Road, Ryde, NSW 2112

Seating and Mobility have many challenges from providing stability and function, to the individual’s access to control the chair and control their environment. This course is designed to provide an overview of seating and positioning with a focus on stability with function and how to balance both.

Level: Beginner to Intermediate

The course will go over different access methods to electronics for control of a power wheelchair and other environmental needs such as Infrared and Bluetooth options the individual has available in the Q-Logic electronics. There will be a hands-on component to this course to provide the participant with the ability to try the technology that is being discussed.
