In the first of our series highlighting travel, we dive into all things accessible travel with Kristy Durso, the owner of Incredible Memories Travel. Kristy brings her expertise and passion for travel to this conversation. We talk tips for traveling and highlight some must visit places in the US and abroad and experiences, including Incredible Memories 2024 Getaway.
Listen as we discuss common myths and misconceptions surrounding standing power wheelchairs from clinical concerns like custom seating to funding questions. We're joined by Jim Stephenson and Ashley Detterbeck for this interesting conversation.
Get some insight on clinical research, as we talk white papers in general and deep dive into the updated Standing White Paper from Permobil. Highlights include new additions to the white paper, survey results from a wide variety of power wheelchair end users, and what motion sensor graphics can tell us about body position before and after the standing sequence.
Get inspired by Danielle's story! She's a young woman with CP who advocates for herself and her clients. Discover how she fought to get her power wheelchair with standing and see how this technology helps her unwind after a long day as a social worker, giving her the independence she needs to live life to the fullest.
