Seating Series Day 1 – Pressure Care Cushion Prescription (Sydney)

October 8 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

ILS Education

ILS Sensational Seating Series is a comprehensive, three part course designed for therapists working in seating and positioning. The series will commence by exploring the importance of seating for function and positioning, including evaluation of pressure relieving cushions. A two day workshop will follow focusing on seating assessment and equipment solutions for manual and power mobility.

A hands-on approach to seating assessment and equipment prescription will be a large focus throughout the series.
Participants can select to attend one or all of the sessions relevant to their practice context and clinical experience. The aim of the series is to provide an environment to facilitate critical clinical reasoning and practical simulation of assessment processes for prescription of seating and mobility solutions.

 

Who should attend?

Any therapist involved in or with an interest in seating and wheelchair prescription

All sessions will contribute to CPD points

By the end of Day 1 participants will be able to:

  • Identify the importance of seating for identified care and seating goals
  • Identify and analyse key mediums used for pressure care seating and their clinical properties
  • Theoretical and practical evaluation of basic to high level pressure care cushions
