The integrated standing feature of a powered wheelchair standing device (PWSD) provides children with the ability to stand when and where they desire, thereby potentially increasing their independence and participation. Our recent work strongly suggests that both children and families need specific education and support to fully realize the potential benefits of PWSD use. This webinar will introduce specific strategies to track clinical outcomes and support integration of PWSD use into daily life activities. Case studies and examples from our work will be used to illustrate application of these strategies.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will list 4 potential ways that powered wheelchair standing devices enable children’s engagement in daily activities and participation in life situations.
  • Participants will describe 3 ways to track outcomes of powered wheelchair standing device use.
  • Participants will describe 5 key elements to support children’s use of powered wheelchair standing devices in daily life activities.
