Session Description
Session Type: 

Why do we need to be able to access what’s in front of us?  Anterior tilt on power wheelchairs recently emerged from the industry as a new power seat function, but was already used in therapeutic settings or as an ergonomic solution for many years.  This presentation will examine best practice application of power anterior tilt, in combination with other power seat functions, to facilitate optimal outcomes based on the ICF model.  The evidence on health, function and participation outcomes, as well as end-user satisfaction will be discussed.  Clinical measurement tools and documentation strategies will also be considered.
