Invacare has announced a new seating and positioning course for its Invacademy training programme this year aimed at those wanting to gain a basic understanding or refresh their knowledge of Invacare’s full seating range.
Its first course will be co-presented by Sharon Sutherland PT, MISCP, MNAPTA: owner/manager of Seating Solutions LLC. Sharon has specialised in the field of seating, positioning and mobility for the past 28 years.
Graduating from The University of Dublin, Trinity College as a physiotherapist, she has given over 800 presentations on positioning, seating and mobility to audiences including physio/physical and occupational therapists, engineers, physicians, attorneys, nurses and case managers worldwide.
This will be a good opportunity for Invacare’s healthcare professionals and dealers looking for valuable, in depth knowledge from an experienced professional.
The free one-day course offers clinical guidance on how to fulfil varied positioning needs, followed by a complete summary of Invacare’s (manufactured and distributed) cushions and backrests.
Participants will have the chance to explore the Propad, Matrx Flo-tech and Vicair range with an explanation of the different product features enabling them to examine and compare products in depth and develop expertise in seating solutions. There will also be a hands-on workshop covering how to fit Matrx back systems.
The course is designed so that participants will leave confident in understanding the principles of posture and positioning and how Invacare’s seating range can be applied to ensure positive outcomes for clients.
The course takes place at Invacare’s UK office in South Wales on Tuesday 20th March 2018. Limited spaces are available and bookings can be placed by calling its team on 01656 776283.
