Content Overview

Wheelchairs have rapidly evolved in recent years. Just a decade ago, the world’s lightest wheelchairs were in the range of 10kg.  Now, it is possible to find ultra-lightweight wheelchairs in the range of 4 kg or less including wheels. These new ultra lightweight are made to measure creating a fully bespoke wheelchair to match each user’s individual style, use and personality.

To compliment the range of light weight manual wheelchairs available on the market, Sunrise Medical will also showcase the changes in powered mobility, including Magic and Quickie chairs.  The workshop will help you understand the different power wheelchair base types and how they impact on client participation and functional outcomes.   We’ll also address the clinical application of power seating options.

You’ll leave this course excited to work with power wheelchairs!

NB: All participants will be required to check into the venue using the QR Code provided by Club Macquarie and to wear face masks during the workshop.  This requirement may change based on NSW Health guidelines.
