Free CEU 3/21: Muscle Tone and Tone Management: Dynamic Seating Intervention
Join OT Michelle Lange for this LIVE webinar with IACET CEUs provided by NRRTS as an authorized provider on March 21 at 5pm Mountain Time. The webinar will be recorded and made available on-demand after the live presentation.
This course discusses muscle tone definitions, etiology, and pathophysiology. People with increased muscle tone may also have movement disorders and reflexive responses. Diagnoses where increased muscle tone is common will also be presented. This course will then address tone management interventions and how these impact wheelchair seating.
Finally, the use of Dynamic Seating in people with increased muscle tone and movement disorders will be presented. Dynamic Seating moves in response to client movement, diffusing forces and protecting the client from injury and the equipment from loss of adjustment and breakage.
The participant will be able to:
- Define muscle tone and related pathophysiology.
- List 3 tone management strategies.
- Describe how Dynamic Seating interventions can benefit clients with increased muscle tone.
