The shoulder is often considered when determining appropriateness of manual mobility, but do we consider the impacts of other types of seating and mobility equipment on the shoulder? How does the client’s access to their environment, their posture, and their support surface impact the shoulder? This webinar will begin with a review of shoulder anatomy and physiology. Following a review, we will discuss how the Permobil products – power wheelchairs, seating and positioning products, manual wheelchairs, and power assist can directly impact shoulder health and function. By the end of the webinar, the attendee should be able to better understand how complex rehab technology (CRT) equipment directly impacts the shoulder and the client’s functional independence.
Note: Since this entire webinar is discussing a specific product, according to CEU/CCU guidelines, no CEU/CCU education credits can be issued.
