2015 is sliding away!

I cannot believe it is almost November and the holiday season. I have been traveling extensively doing clinical presentations and hands on evaluations with clients all over the US over the past few months. Its been a great Fall so far - or as we say in Ireland .... a beautiful Autumn:) 
2016 is fast approaching and I find my calendar becoming solidly booked until June. This is simply a reflection of how many people are in need of seating, mobility and standing evaluations and training. The clients and clinicians I meet everyday worldwide in my travels are fantastic.

Hips and Seating challenges...

Do you think about the relationship between hip limitations and seating? In the past 4 years, I have been paying close attention to this. Approximately 80% of all the clients ( not age specific) I have had the privilege of assessing for wheelchair seating during this time have not had the range of motion necessary to sit successfully in the wheelchair seating systems they were presenting in (On average I see between 15-20 clients per month). Their presenting symptoms varied from sacral sitting and compensating kyphosis with hyper extended cervical spine to extreme pelvic obliquity, pelvic rotation and compensating scoliosis with very compromised respiratory  and disgestive function.

How many of you focus on Seating for the Elderly ? I am a big believer that this population truly needs correctly prescribed seat cushions, back supports and wheeled mobility bases. Think about - Propulsion, Transfers, Eating, Respiratory complications, Skin Integrity challenges- just to name a few of the considerations. I provide consultation/advice, clinical training, staff training, clinical assessments in this area of specialty. Please share with me your thoughts!

On the road again!

So hard to believe that summer is over and fall is upon us! Its been a really crazy - busy FUN summer between work travel and personal travel. I am sure some of you have heard..... I got married in August to this wonderful man " Scott Sutherland" I am now in the midst of figuring out this name change jungle!!! I will keep you all posted on that progress!
In October I will have at least 10 speaking engagements which will include hands on evaluations and a lot of fun interaction with various audiences in the field of complex rehab! This will be followed with a trip to my homeland in early November where I have the pleasure of speaking at the European Seating Symposium in Dublin:) Of course this will include a quick visit with my family who live in Ireland... I cant wait... !
