Description

Ever have the sinking feeling when you meet the client that you have absolutely no idea where to start? Every client presents with their own unique issues; some are physical, some are behavioural, some are environment related. A good outcome for a prescription takes all factors into consideration and strikes a balance to accommodate as many issues as possible. The core tenants of best practice in prescription of a seating and mobility system  are assessment, goal setting, matching client need to equipment parameters, evaluation and follow-up. Through the use of case studies, this session will highlight the best practice, problem-solving path as it applies to any client; those that appear straight-forward, complex or ‘unseatable’, whatever the reason.
