It is critical that rehab professionals working with clients with seating needs have a thorough understanding of the factors that impact manual wheelchair propulsion, seating, and positioning. This online course covers theoretical models guiding seating practice, client centered assessment, common wheelchair types, wheelchair set up for effective propulsion, common seating components, goal setting, and management of commonly encountered postural deformities.

Through this online course participants will gain a better understanding of the factors involved in client assessment and wheelchair/seating prescription. Content is delivered through online video lectures, demonstration videos, and required knowledge checks. In addition, participants have the opportunity to observe a complete seating assessment (demo) and complete a case study (assignment).
