Clinical specialist adds expertise to new Seating & Positioning training course

Invacare is launching a new course to its 2018 Invacademy training programme, the Invacare Seating & Positioning course. The first course will be co-presented by Sharon Sutherland PT, MISCP, MNAPTA and Owner/Manager of Seating Solutions LLC.

Aimed at those wanting to gain a basic understanding or refresh their knowledge of Invacare’s full seating range, the free one-day course offers clinical guidance on how to fulfil varied positioning needs, followed by a complete summary of Invacare’s (manufactured and distributed) cushions and backrests.

Participants will have the chance to explore the Propad, Matrx Flo-tech and Vicair range with an explanation of the different product features, enabling attendees to examine and compare products in depth and develop expertise in seating solutions. There will also be a hands-on workshop covering how to fit Matrx back systems.

Sharon has specialized in the field of seating, positioning and mobility for the past 28 years. Graduating from The University of Dublin, Trinity College as a Physiotherapist, she has given over 800 presentations on positioning, seating and mobility to audiences including physio/physical and occupational therapists, engineers, physicians, attorneys, nurses and case managers worldwide.

The company says the course is a fantastic opportunity for healthcare professionals and dealers to benefit from her valuable, in-depth knowledge and is ideal for both those looking to refresh knowledge and new starters looking for a complete summary.

Participants will leave the course confident in understanding the principles of posture and positioning and how Invacare’s seating range can be applied to ensure positive outcomes for clients.

The one-day course takes place at Invacare’s UK office in South Wales on Tuesday 20th March 2018.
