Practical Application for Best Outcomes- Provision of a Manual Mobility System

(1 hrs./ 0.1 CEU/CCU)

AOTA Category:  OT Service Delivery

  • CEUs/Contact Hours:  0.1 AOTA CEUs/1 Contact Hour
  • Education Level:  Introductory

General Overview:

In many settings, where time and resources are limited, the potential exists to provide standard manual wheelchairs which are not individually customized. This course is intended to be an overview to transitioning your practice from general use and standard equipment to the ideas of best practice for manual wheelchair recommendations for long-term independent self-propulsion to maximize functional mobility. This course will utilize clinical examples to assist the clinical decision-making process about who needs complex rehab technology (CRT), how outcomes can be improved, and how to navigate the CRT provision landscape. Upon completion of this course, clinicians will have a better understanding of how to initiate referrals and recommend manual wheelchair solutions for CRT to optimize client outcomes.

This one-hour, live course is intended to expand clinicians and equipment suppliers’ understanding of current best practice concepts when prescribing manual wheelchair solutions for complex rehabilitation technology (CRT).

CEU Objectives: By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe three indications a person may need an evaluation for manual wheelchair complex rehabilitation technology (CRT).
  2. Discuss three clinical justifications for selecting a rigid manual wheelchair versus a folding manual wheelchair.
  3. Explain two adjustments to the configuration of the manual wheelchair as it relates to shoulder injury prevention.
  4. Justify three reasons related to health, function or participation that a client may benefit from a manual wheelchair with a power assist device.
