Description

Postural Management for People with Complex Disabilities (4 Day)

(Attendees should have some previous experience in seating assessments)

Outcomes:

The course is delivered over four days and uses a mix of theoretical and practical sessions to provide an introduction to the posture management of a severely disabled person which is vital in optimising the remaining function ability of the person, but also in minimising secondary complications associated with their condition.

The main topics covered are as follows:

  • The principles of biomechanics as applied to posture management;
  • The meaning of posture;
  • The principles of building a stable posture in sitting and lying and the practical application;
  • The need to collect all of the data on the Management of Physical Disability 24-7 (MPD 24-7) assessment form, sequentially;
  • The skills needed to record, on the MPD 24-7, notation of body configuration in sitting and lying and passive range of joint movement using the 0-neutral method;
  • The critical points and measures that must be considered, to facilitate optimal support and/or accommodation within equipment

Cost Per Attendee: € 450 (Includes all course notes)
