Description

Individuals with physical limitations want to take ownership of their lives, move forward, and gain independence!  To make this happen, they need to know what options exist in the marketplace, how to obtain them, and how to best use them.

Learn about the latest and greatest in assistive technology, especially pertaining to wheelchair functions and accessories. We will focus on the various options available to individualize mobility equipment to maximize the end-user’s experience and independence. Learn how smart phones interface with power wheelchairs, how various controls are operated using Bluetooth devices that interface with power wheelchairs. Options will be presented that range from very simple to complex, affordable and main-stream to specialized and potentially cost-prohibitive. You’ll learn the recommended process for prescribing and obtaining assistive technology devices, as well as take home information and resources that can be shared with your patients immediately!
