Ki Mobility | What Factors Really Affect the Efficiency of a Manual Wheelchair?
  • webinar
  • Ultra-Lightweight Wheelchairs
  • Clinical Webinar
Length: Approx 1 hour
There are many firmly held opinions about what factors most dramatically affect manual wheelchair propulsion efficiency. Which factors have the greatest impact and are most important to consider? Is it the weight of the chair? Is it the component selection? Like an automobile, is it the way it is tuned or set up that optimises efficiency? Prescribing professionals must understand how people use their manual wheelchairs. They must also understand how wheelchairs actually work as a machine. Armed with this knowledge, the professional can make appropriate decisions to optimise efficiency while meeting the user's needs for support, stability, and function. This presentation will discuss factors commonly considered to be predictors of manual wheelchair propulsion efficiency. We will compare these factors in light of what current research suggests as being predictive and then provide some applicable conclusions to inform clinical practice.

09:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Ki Mobility | Fully Completely – Putting It All Together
  • webinar
  • Ultra-Lightweight Wheelchairs
  • Clinical Webinar
Length: Approx 1 hour

There are a few complaints that we tend to hear from wheelchair riders about their chair, like “hard to push”, “heavy to turn”, or the dreaded “I just don’t like it”. In most cases, these complaints are fixable or preventable by making some simple adjustments to the set-up of the chair. The caveat, of course, is as long as you have the adjustability built into the wheelchair. If someone does not like their K0003 chair, you will likely find there is nothing you can do about it. Their K0005 wheelchair, now that’s another (and happier) story.

In this session, we will put together a lot of the information that we have discussed in previous sessions to help decide what kind of chair might be right for an individual user, as well as the adjustments to look for both for today and into the future to help your wheelchair prescription be a success. We will also examine some of the accessories that you can choose to help ensure your rider is going to get the most satisfaction from his/her chair.
