Lead/Instructor: Jean Minkel
Session Track: SM: Seating and Mobility (including CRT)
The workshop will move from the findings of a mat assessment to using those findings to determine a person's personal posture in the seated position. There will be an emphasis on the effect of gravity when a person sits up and gravity pushes down. We will explore how postural supports can be positioned to provide external support and improve head control. Finally, different pelvic positions will be presented to demonstrate the impact of pelvic positioning on the management of interface pressure while sitting.
