The newly proposed technique focusing on the evaluation of supra-pelvic scoliosis will be introduced. The aim is to provide data from the supine position on the plinth that can be used 1:1 in the build of a seating system. The outcomes produced are distance measurements, ROM including multiple segments interactions with improved efficiency & outcomes.
As part of the face and content validation process, and overview of this novel assessment will be presented and an outline on how you can be involved in the validation process with be given.
To illustrate this technique, an intervention using the Free Form Seating kit from Symmetric Designs will be shown.
The participant will be able to identify how you can be part of the content and face validation process of newly proposed Mechanical Assessment Tool (MAT) focusing on the supine part of the MAT evaluation.
The participant will be able to list at least tree measurable outcomes of this novel MAT assessment.
The participant will be able to list at least 3 benefits of this novel MAT eval compared to the classic MAT evaluation.
