IC2: Power Wheelchair Driving Methods
Primary Subject Area: Seating and Mobility
Content Level: Intermediate (2-5 yrs)
Power wheelchairs can provide independent mobility for many people with physical limitations. However, not everyone can use a standard joystick due to limitations in motor control or muscle strength. This course will present a variety of alternative proportional and digital driving methods with clinical indicators for each. Hands-on time with individual access methods and opportunities to program will be included. Case studies will be used throughout and audience participation is encouraged.
