Join the Permobil and GTK Teams for either a half day or a full day workshop.
You can choose to attend the morning session, afternoon session or both depending on your learning goals.
9am – 12.30pm – Under Pressure
It is common knowledge that most pressure injuries are preventable. By understanding what pressure is and how it impacts the body, we can apply this knowledge to guide the clinical reasoning processes to select appropriate individualised seating solutions. Following this session, attendees will be able to:
1. List 4 common areas for pressure injuries
2. Name the 6 classifications of pressure injuries
3. Describe 3 current practices to assist with the prevention or treatment of pressure injuries
1pm – 3pm – Standing Power Wheelchairs: From Evidence to Trial
Identifying and clinically justifying when standing should be integrated into a mobility base can be overwhelming. Understanding standing readiness and how to appropriately measure outcomes at a trial are essential parts of the process. By the end of this session you will have the information to:
1. Describe 3 evidence supported ways that standing can benefit an end-user
2. List 4 considerations to determine readiness for standing
3. Explain the importance of the trial process for a standing power wheelchair

Meet the Presenter: Rosanna Tegel (Permobil)
Roseanna Tegel joined Permobil in May 2023 as a Clinical Services Specialist. She graduated from Western Sydney University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Health Science/Master of Occupational Therapy and received the Prize in Undergraduate Occupational Therapy for Overall Achievement and the Cerebral Palsy Alliance scholarship.
Roseanna began working at residential aged care facilities where her understanding of the need for suitable, person-centred equipment commenced. From there, she transitioned to work in community disability and quickly developed an interest for complex seating and mobility outcomes to benefit both the end user and wider network. She then stepped into a Team Leader role due to her passion for learning and best practice; supporting the Occupational Therapists with their own clinical needs and outcomes, and progressed to also provide external supervision to Occupational Therapists.
Roseanna is motivated to support clinicians with their confidence and clinical reasoning allowing them to provide the best outcome for each individual user. Outside of work, Roseanna enjoys time with her dog, playing the ‘cello, horse riding and aerial sports.
