PO1.11: Live Measurement Versus Photogrammetry for Seating Assessments

Telehealth services including use of store-and-forward (SAF) technologies have improved costs, access and efficiency of rehabilitation services to rural Veterans. SAF technologies have had limited use for wheeled mobility and there are few studies assessing reliability of in-person measurements versus digital photogrammetry. This poster presents interrater reliability of live and SAF measurement techniques for wheelchair seating; Smartphone apps for use in wheeled mobility evaluations, and recommendations for use of SAF technologies in future telehealth services.
