OT Michelle Lange presented at the Alpine Rehab Conference for "Muscle Tone, Tone, Management and Dynamic Seating Intervention" on. Thu, October 05, 2023.
Educator: Michelle Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS (Seating Dynamics)
Description: This course will explore muscle tone, implications in wheelchair seating, and interventions. We will start with muscle tone definitions, etiology, pathophysiology, movement disorders, and related diagnoses. Tone management interventions, and how these impact wheelchair seating, will also be addressed. We will continue with common wheelchair seating challenges present in people with increased muscle tone and movement disorders, as well as suggested seating solutions. Finally, the use of Dynamic Seating as a part of an overall seating solution 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.
