A good seating and mobility evaluation involves not only the assessment but a consideration of the clients’ specific physical functional and lifestyle needs. Once these are assessed, the seating components, frames, and design can be configured to maximise any possible recuperation and to enhance the quality of life. At the same time you’ll be taught how to marry the clients need for comfort and agility with the body’s need for regeneration and healing.
