Take the first steps to better understanding the importance of a proper wheelchair system in wound care. We will clear up common misconceptions of  eating and positioning that increases the susceptibility to pressure injury and falls from the wheelchair level. After this course, you will be well informed on basic seating and positioning principles to better prescribe the appropriate wheelchair model, cushion, and back support to help minimize the risk of development or recurrence of a pressure injury, and assist in healing existing wounds through the appropriate equipment choices for the seated posture.
