Course Description: Wheeled mobility devices are considered one of the most important Assistive Technology (AT) Devices. The final choice of wheelchair and seating system often involves a compromise between meeting the client’s goals, environmental and reimbursement constraints, and the best choice of technology. Clinicians and ATP Suppliers bring a very specialized and unique, but complimentary set of skills to the evaluation process. Although these skills and responsibilities are different between the therapist and supplier, it is critical to the overall process, that each professional understand the other’s responsibilities and skill sets. This class will take a multidisciplinary look, based on the RESNA Wheelchair Service Provision Guide, to provide each the supplier and clinician with the knowledge of the seating and wheeled mobility evaluation process including options for gauging client specific outcomes. This Part 2 course will focus most heavily on the recommendation through post-delivery functions of the multidisciplinary team to better define expectations and communications for outcome measures.
At the conclusion of the course the participant will be able to:
- Distinguish the role of the evaluating clinician in the equipment selection and trial portion of the wheelchair provision process.
- Differentiate 3 key considerations to be addressed during the Fitting, Training, and Delivery process of the service provision guide.
- Discuss the importance of outcome measures in the procurement process of seating and wheeled mobility technology.
