Train The Trainer – Manual Wheelchair Skills

Train The Trainer – Manual Wheelchair Skills

How confident are you in instructing your clients in safe and effective manual wheelchair propulsion? Research shows that demonstration is the most effective way to impart skills to new wheelchair users of all ages. Learn how to perform basic manoeuvres to get the best from your client’s new wheelchair.
At the completion of this learning day, you will:
✦ Compare novice and intermediate propulsion technique
✦ Develop efficient and safe stroke style and cadence
✦ Be confident in safely propelling up and down inclines, ramps and over varying terrain
✦ Learn tips for client instruction


There are currently no scheduled dates for this education workshop due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to resume our clinical education calendar once it is safe to do so.
