Manual Wheelchair Mobility: Self-Propulsion
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4176Level: Introductory1 Hour
Most manual wheelchairs are designed for self-propulsion and fall into categories. This course systematically explores each category with clinical indicators, as well as optimal frame configuration to increase propulsion efficiency and reduce the risk of repetitive stress injury.

Computer and Tablet Access
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4128Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will present a hierarchy of computer and tablet access options for clients unable to use standard access, such as a keyboard, mouse, and touch screen. Access assessment requires analysis of motor skills, vision, cognition, and functional applications. Alternative keyboards and mice will be presented, as well as other alternative access options. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Dependent Mobility Intervention
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4102Level: Introductory1 Hour
Dependent mobility devices are not designed for self-propulsion. These include adaptive strollers, transport chairs, tilt-in space manual wheelchairs, reclining manual wheelchairs, and standard manual wheelchairs. For very small children, adaptive strollers are often required to meet positional and dependent mobility needs. Other dependent mobility bases, such as transport chairs and standard wheelchairs, are used for quick trips or for temporary use. Clients may also use a dependent mobility base as a backup to a power wheelchair. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Matching Products to Seating Needs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4099Level: Introductory1 Hour
Once the wheelchair seating assessment has been completed and seating interventions considered, it is time to match specific client needs to product interventions. This course presents various categories of seating systems. Seating systems, whether linear, contoured, or molded, are comprised of primary support surfaces, secondary support components, and materials. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Power Wheelchair Advanced Features
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3990Level: Advanced2 Hours
Power wheelchairs do far more than drive – the driving method can be used to navigate and control other features including Reverse, Speeds, Power Seating, or an Interfaced Assistive Technology device (i.e. a communication device). Power Wheelchairs can send Bluetooth signals to control devices such as tablets and smartphones. Finally, new SMART technologies are making power wheelchairs safer and more efficient for everyone. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Positioning for Function: The Trunk and Extremities
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3992Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will present common trunk asymmetries seen in wheelchair seating with suggested strategies to address each challenge. Providing as neutral a trunk position as possible improves overall posture, stability, and function. This course will then systematically address potential upper and lower extremity positioning challenges with suggested interventions. By specifically positioning the extremities, the seating system provides stability, function and even protection from injury. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

A New Era: From EADLs to Alexa!
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #3699Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Electronic Aids to Daily Living provide an alternative means of controlling devices, primarily within the home environment, including audiovisual equipment, lighting, and thermostats. Advances in consumer home automation technologies have opened new control opportunities for people with disabilities. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
