  • Wheelchair Boot Camp
    Bill Richlen, PT, WCC, CWS Infinitus, LLC, WCEI Instructor

    When a patient is sitting, the ischial tuberosities are under great pressure forces of around 100 mmHg, making them one of the
    most common areas of pressure ulcer development. Due to improper positioning, the sacrum/coccyx and plantar aspect of the
    foot also become high risk areas. In this session we will discuss the common problems seen in seating, consider the postural concerns
    for the spine and pelvis, and demonstrate how to choose the appropriate cushions and properly fit wheelchairs for your patients.

    The medical record is considered to be the most reliable source for determining what happened. It is a legal document, yet
    not always treated as such. With litigation lurking around the corner for every healthcare professional, we, as Wound Care
