Permobil has launched Permobil Academy, an online centre of learning for the “modern, compliant rehab profession.”
The firm says it is an online platform that enables industry professionals to take control of their learning, offering educational support.
It outlined how clinicians who wish to further educate themselves, gain new insights and stay up to date with clinical research can use it as well as assistive technology providers in need of basic clinical knowledge about wheelchair users and their needs.
It also mentioned technicians and service personnel who need a go-to resource for technical knowledge.
The company’s clinical & training manager, Arne Compernolle, said: “Time is a precious commodity for most rehab professionals so a key feature with Permobil Academy is the possibility to learn whenever and wherever it is most convenient for them.”
Adding: “They can enjoy the flexibility of being able to learn at their own pace. They can start, pause, resume and repeat each course as they like.”
The syllabus covers:
- Functional and clinical application of our products to optimize outcomes for clients.
- Product training for Power Wheelchairs, Seating and Positioning products, Manual Wheelchairs and Power Assist.
- Evidence-based practice to empower clinicians to find solutions for their clients
- Technical training to help optimize service quality and cost-effectivity for dealers.
Godron Cunningham, Permobil general manager in UK and Ireland concluded: “This is further proof of Permobil’s commitment to innovation and not just from our typical product portfolio. Now we are delivering with a digital platform offering products that support our users, dealers and clinical stakeholders.”
