IC65: Maximizing Outcomes In Step with Advancing Technology

Seating and wheeled mobility technology is advancing rapidly. Often, a wheelchair user is instructed in basic use of their equipment at delivery and the more advanced features the chair is capable of are not utilized. A team approach is critical to thoroughly maximize a person’s ability to utilize comprehensive assistive technology options for medical and functional outcomes. In this course, several recent case studies will examine solutions to problems commonly encountered in real world applications.

This session is supported by a company with reported interest in the sale of Assistive Technology products. The content has been reviewed by ISS personnel and determined to be appropriate for continuing education purposes.
