Course Overview:

This course is intended for Licensed/Certified Medical Professionals (i.e. PT, OT, Physician, Nurse) and Rehab Professionals (ATP, SMS, CRTS). Many of our most physically involved power wheelchair users require the use of an alternative drive control system to achieve independence in mobility, yet there is not a nationally recognized readiness tool to ensure that the end-user will have success with a specialty drive controls. Learning a new system can be a challenge no matter what context you apply.

This course will assist the CRT multidisciplinary with a variety of training methods that can be used to ensure that a client will be safe and functional in the use
of the recommended PWC with alternative drive controls prior to the final recommendation/submission for coverage to insurance.

At the conclusion of the course the participant will be able to:

  • Define at least 2 commonly used alternative drive control terms as they pertain to alternative drive control programming.

  • Score and test a PWC alternative drive end user for safety and function using the power wheelchair skills test.

  • Distinguish a minimum of 2 additional options for alternative drive control training without the use of a power wheelchair.

Course Level: 

Intermediate – This course will cover how to successfully gauge a client’s safety and readiness for new alternative drive power wheelchair users. Course prerequisites assume that the attendees of this webinar understand what an alternative drive control is and some basic understanding of the most commonly used alternative drive control options, as we will be building on that information to ensure proper training methodologies and safety.
