Writing Letters of Medical Necessity for Seating and Wheelchairs
Presented by Lindsey Veety, PT, DPT, ATP/SMS
Live WebinarFri, Jun 17, 2022 at 10:00 am EDT
Course: #4424Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will cover the details of what to include in a letter of medical necessity. Examples will be given along the way to support not only different types of chairs and seating, but also different scenarios for when insurance companies ask for information how to best answer questions.

Custom Molded Seating 101
Presented by Lindsey Veety, PT, DPT, ATP/SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4315Level: Introductory2 Hours
When seeing a client in a wheelchair, knowing what type of seating to choose can be a challenge, especially if the client presents with complex conditions or body shapes that don't fit into linear seating. 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.

Power Wheelchairs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #4220Level: Introductory1 Hour
Power wheelchairs are designed to provide independent and functional mobility for people unable to efficiently self-propel any type of manual wheelchair. This course will introduce power-operated vehicles (scooters) and power wheelchairs, including features such as drive wheel configuration, power seating, and alternative driving methods. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Seating Considerations in the Home Health Setting
Presented by Sara Frye, MS, OTR/L, ATP
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #4162Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course provides an overview of the unique considerations for seating and positioning in the home. Best practices and ethical dilemmas will be discussed with case examples. 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: #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.

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.

Augmented Mobility Intervention
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4107Level: Introductory1 Hour
Augmented mobility is used with clients who require assistance in ambulation. This category of equipment includes walking canes, crutches, walkers, and gait trainers. Augmented mobility is used to prevent falls, increase mobility, and provide strengthening and dynamic weight-bearing. This course will systematically present each of these options with clinical indicators. 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.

Durable Medical Equipment for Activities of Daily Living
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Recorded WebinarAudioText/Transcript
Course: #4112Level: Introductory1 Hour
Clients who use wheelchair seating and mobility equipment often have other durable medical equipment (DME) needs, as well. Durable medical equipment is often used to assist activities of daily living and so clinicians are active participants in selecting the appropriate equipment for a client’s needs. This course will address bath/shower equipment, toileting equipment, patient lifts, and adaptive car seats. 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.
