Power Adjustable Seat Height: How High & Why?
How are complex rehab clients using their power adjustable seat height — aka, seat elevation — in the real world, and what real-world results are they experiencing?
In this Mobility Management Webinar, Quantum Rehab’s Julie Piriano, PT, ATP/SMS, VP, Clinical Education, Rehab Industry Affairs and Compliance Officer, discusses how power adjustable seat height impacts how efficiently and safely clients transfer and reach, as well as how their posture and line of sight are impacted. How much seat elevation do these consumers typically use to accomplish these mobility-related activities of daily living?
What You’ll Learn:
- How consumers are using power seat elevation in their everyday lives — how much elevation they’re using and in what circumstances.
- How seat elevation impacts consumer satisfaction with mobility-related tasks and their seating and wheeled mobility equipment.
- How not providing seat elevation affects everyday function and overall health costs.
- How new outcomes information could impact the future of seat elevation provision and funding.
