Etac R82, a supplier of Scandinavian-inspired assistive equipment for disabled children and adults, has announced its latest educational programme called SAT (Seating Assessment Training).
The free training course is targeted at paediatric OTs and physiotherapists who want to develop their knowledge of seating principles and problem solving solutions.
It offers the opportunity for collaboration between therapists and equipment providers so that individual therapy needs can be met.
With a flexible format, each training session will utilise relevant case studies so that training can be shaped according to the requirements of attendees.
The programme will be hosted by leading OTs, namely Joanne McConnell, OT and category manager for mobility and pressure care at Etac R82, and Helena Poulton, who is a highly specialist OT.
The launch session will run in June in Halesown and will involve a workshop-based approach with hands-on experience and the opportunity to ask questions regarding individual scenarios.
Places on each session will be limited so that all attendees will be able to fully discuss current challenges and obtain expert recommendation on a variety of topics.
