This presentation will give an introduction to what custom molded seating is, who it would be used for, compare and contrasting the main custom molded seating systems on the market, and go through a simulated molding, fitting, and delivery. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Manual Wheelchair Mobility: Self-Propulsion
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/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.
