Shorter hospital and rehabilitation stays may not allow enough time to learn important wheelchair skills, or changes through aging require a brush up course to learn new skills to remain independent.
Wheelchair skills are vital as they help prevent secondary conditions or isolation due to an inability to navigate our environment. It also teaches individuals to become more efficient in the usage of their wheelchair.
We host the Skills Classes two times a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. It is a four week class that meets once a week. For more information, contact us.
Topics Covered Each Week:
Week #1: Transferring
Week#2: Managing Your Environment
Week#3: Traveling with Your Chair
Week#4: Mechanics of Your Chair/Adaptive Sports
