LCS has enjoyed a busy summer hosting webinars with our partners and we are delighted to be bringing a series of new webinars this autumn. These webinars will cover a range of topics including muscle tone and tone management, postural systems and more.

 

First up in September is Good Vibrations with Ki Mobility which will explore the impact of whole body vibration (WBV) on wheelchair users and able-bodied workers, and how manual wheelchair design principles can help counteract the adverse effects of WBV.

Good Vibrations with Ki Mobility takes place on Tuesday, 14 September and you can find out more about this webinar and how to register here: https://lcseating.ie/good-vibrations-can-manual-wheelchair-design-principles-mitigate-the-adverse-effects-of-vibration/

 

On Thursday, 23 September, we are joined by Pro Medicare’s Managing Director Rosaria Caforio who will deliver a two-hour webinar on the theory around the paediatric postural system Ermes and the two no-hardware postural backrests Facile and Condo. https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIvdOCgrDstG9N1nkhrlZ2jSJdnVikloSMs

In October, we are joined by Seating Dynamics’ Michelle L. lange who will deliver a three-part series throughout the month on muscle tone and tone management. Over the three courses, participants will learn the etiology and pathology of increased muscle tone, tone management strategies and how these impact wheelchair seating, and dynamic seating interventions to diffuse these forces.

 

Please see the dates and times for each of the three webinars below, with details on how to register.
