Postural Supports: Not just an afterthought but the final piece in the seating puzzle

Postural Supports: Not just an afterthought but the final piece in the seating puzzle 

We often spend considerable time assessing and looking at backrests and cushion solutions to meet someone’s seating needs. The final point of control or postural support is often a postural support accessory such as a pelvic positioning belt or harness. How this is positioned is essential to the postural position outcome. The session will look at various seated positions and how these impact on function. Attendees will be empowered to leave with the tools to continue exploratory learning and understanding of how and where pelvic belts are fitted and integrated into the overall seating solution. 

Education level of course: Beginner to intermediate 

Total Time:  Clinical education 2 hours – recommend this course also considers a practical Lab to assist with the learning. *** Additional time requirements for lab will depend on group size*** 

Course Objectives:    

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:   

  • Articulate the foundations of proximal stability. 
  • Identify the most appropriate style and positioning required for a pelvic belt to provide postural correction.  
  • Discuss the importance of postural support positioning in relation to functional requirements of individual.
