Level: Beginner, Seating

Have you ever asked…Why does my client continue to slide? or, why bother, they are in bed half the time anyways!? If so, this course is for you! Seating and Mobility for the Geriatric population is just as, if not more important than many other user populations. Not only is there often no predominant diagnosis, but there are many aging/physical deterioration factors that add up to severe sitting postural issues, pain and mobility limitations. Often these factors are hidden and not assessed for, resulting in poor prescriptions that haven’t addressed critical physiological and pain triggers. Sign on to learn great practical assessment & prescriptive guidelines for seating the elderly.

 

Learning Outcomes:

At the successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • List three assessment considerations beyond normal tone, balance and physical postural status that require consideration when seating the elderly
  • Identify three postural concerns often seen in geriatric assessments
  • Identify two restraint reduction techniques for seating/mobility prescriptions
