Evidenced-based approaches for the selection of appropriate wheelchair seating products are needed. Performance standards exist and continue to be developed that establish test methods and requirements for product performance. This symposium will provide an overview of wheelchair cushion performance standards and how to use results from standards testing to evaluate products and inform the product selection process.
- Participants will be able to identify at least five test methods that characterize cushion performance.
- Participants will be able to choose the specific test method used by CMS for cushion coding verification.
- Participants will be able to identify the implications for users of at least five standard performance measures.
