Once upon a time, being called a geek was an insult. Now, given our affinity for and dependence on all things electronic, it’s a badge of honor.
Regardless of the fact that being a geek is trendy at the moment, I suspect that seating & mobility professionals have long been fascinated by technology, including the assistive technology that can help people with mobility impairments to be optimally positioned to move in the best ways possible through active, independent lives. I’ve seen you crawling under wheelchairs at shows. I know you and your colleagues enjoy rolling up your sleeves and taking things into your own hands, whether that’s making a seat depth adjustment or rigging up an alternate driving control. You love duct tape and Velcro.
I get it. Understanding the clinical factors is great, but technology is the other side of the coin that enables you to devise the best solutions.
