Upcoming Events

Theory into Practice: Cushion Selection Series (Part 3)

Confidence with scripting, taking into account clinical presentation, cushion features, and user measurements

How do we decide on the wheelchair cushion that best meets the user's needs?  And how do we then confidently script our chosen selected cushion?

This webinar series on cushion selection will guide you through the process of assessment, all the way to building confidence with scripting, including when considering needed customisations.

In Part 3, Bridget Churchill will help to link theory into practice by consolidating the previous learning in this webinar series and to build confidence with scripting off-the-shelf and customised Spex cushions.

We will review findings of the clinical assessment, user and wheelchair measurements, critical measures and biomechanical considerations to match the cushion with clinical findings and goals.
