Recorded Webinar
Course: #3767Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will introduce seating/positioning needs common to the client with spinal cord injury, wheelchair selection related to client’s level of spinal cord injury, and training strategies to meet client’s independent mobility goals. Brief discussion of documentation requirements to obtain complex rehab technology for the client with spinal cord injury as well as outcome measures to assess effectiveness of training and intervention selection related to wheelchair training will be performed. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Wheelchair Mobility: Optimizing Driving in Power Wheelchairs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3622Level: Advanced1 Hour
Power wheelchair evaluation determines appropriateness for power wheelchair use and then determines the optimal power wheelchair base, power seating, driving method and other needed components. Optimizing power wheelchair driving is critical to improve outcomes and includes choosing the best drive wheel configuration, utilizing tracking technologies, and programming.

Wheelchair Mobility: Power Wheelchair Alternative Driving Methods
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3627Level: Advanced2 Hours
While some clients require a power wheelchair to achieve independent mobility, not all will be able to use a standard joystick. Clients with paralysis, muscle weakness, increased muscle tone, and uncontrolled movements can often drive a power wheelchair successfully when matched to the most appropriate alternative driving method. This course will systematically explore various alternative driving methods, including specific features, to match these complex client needs. Case studies will be used throughout.

Wheelchair Mobility: Power Add On Options And Use For Manual Wheelchairs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3570Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will present alternate manual wheelchair drive mechanisms, including non-powered and powered options to increase manual wheelchair efficiency and decrease pain and injury risk. These drive mechanisms increase the force of each handrim stroke for increased travel as well as force to overcome slopes and uneven terrain.

Wheelchair Mobility: Ultralight Configuration And Propulsion
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudio
Course: #3575Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will present an appropriate configuration of ultralight manual wheelchairs to optimize self-propulsion efficiency. Increased efficiency decreases the risk of repetitive stress injuries and pain, as well as improves function.

Wheelchair Seating: Considerations For The Hands Dependent Sitter
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3576Level: Advanced1 Hour
Wheelchair seating is designed to provide postural support and alignment, stability for function and mitigate pressure issues. This course will address assessment and intervention when working with a client who can only sit with the support of their hands, referred to as the ‘hands-dependent’ sitter.

Wheelchair Seating: Considerations For The Prop Sitter
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3580Level: Advanced1 Hour
Wheelchair seating is designed to provide postural support and alignment, stability for function and mitigate pressure issues. This course will address assessment and intervention when working with a client who can only sit with external supports, referred to as a prop sitter.

Wheelchair Seating: Considerations for the Hands-Free Sitter
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3585Level: Advanced1 Hour
Wheelchair seating is designed to provide postural support and alignment, stability for function and mitigate pressure issues. This course will address assessment and intervention when working with a client who can sit without the support of their hands, referred to as the ‘hands-free’ sitter.
