Accurate client measurements are an integral part of a developing a successful wheelchair prescription. But what measurements are really useful? How do you interpret these measurements? And what are the implications of making equipment size decisions based on these measurements?
This presentation will focus on the measurement process and explore the translation of measurements as they relate to wheelchair selection and set up for a variety of client diagnostic groups and ages (paediatrics, adult with congenital conditions, adults with progressive conditions, bariatrics etc).
