JAY - YOUR WAY

Join us for our morning session, designed to help clinicians understand key features of core Jay products and answer some core clinical questions:

  • How do I identify which cushion or back in the Jay range may best suit my client?
  • How can I choose the correct size?
  • Can I change the shape and contour?
  • What accessories and should I consider?
  • How can I modify or customise the product to meet the needs of more complex clients?

Learn a simple step-by-step process for a successful prescription, to ensure that your client receives the best Jay solution to meet their needs, both now and in the future. Participants will have a chance to touch and try a range of Jay seating.

This session is designed to benefit both novice and intermediate clinicians.

Tea & coffee refreshment are provided. Please email training@aidacare.com.au if you have any dietary requirements.

Arrival: 12.30pm
Afternoon Session: 1.00pm to 3.00pm

Featuring design innovation, ultralight construction and superior performance, Quickie 5R and & 7R offer an unparalleled experience for active users. These chairs will be the stars as we work through some of the basics of active wheelchair prescription and become more familiar with and knowledgeable about scripting choices. This is an interactive session designed to help clinicians understand key options and measurements when prescribing 5R and 7R, although much of the information will be applied more widely to the Quickie range. This session is designed to benefit both intermediate and advanced clinicians.

Lunch is provided. Please email training@aidacare.com.au if you have any dietary requirements.
