Prescriber Events & Education

Power Mobility is dedicated to ongoing professional development including clinical wheelchair training. We offer a selection of clinical, product and technical courses to help you develop the latest practical skills and thinking – whether you’re prescribing wheelchairs and mobility products, or you work with clients who use these products and would like to improve your knowledge.

We regularly hold in-house events for prescribers and therapists, as well as exhibiting at industry events that you may be interested in attending. Please see below for our upcoming education sessions. We conduct theses sessions in Brisbane and regional centres, such as the Sunshine Coast, the Wide Bay region and Rockhampton. We receive great feedback about these sessions, as the topics we cover often aren’t taught in traditional learning environments. Keep an eye on this page for more events, workshops & professional development coming soon!

“I’ve been looking for this sort of training for ages! We aren’t taught this stuff at Uni, but it’s crucial to getting good results for clients. The more hands-on, the better!”

Power Wheelchairs 101 (up to 3hrs)

If you haven’t had a lot of experience with power drive wheelchairs, or it’s been a little while since you have, this session is perfect for you. We’ll take you through the key features and functions of a PDWC, so by the end of this session you’ll have good understanding of all the basics. We’ll explain the differences between mid, front & rear wheel drive, and how to choose the correct configuration for your clients’ needs.

Get with the Program – Power Wheelchair Programming & Alternative Controls (up to 3hrs)

The way you program a power wheelchair can make all the difference! In this session, you’ll learn the basics of programming a PDWC, including how the right programming can take your client’s chair to the next level, how to make the most of environmental controls and how to make a chair more drivable. This session will also touch on Assistive Technology Trialling & Scripting for both Standard & Complex power wheelchairs.

Introduction to Power Wheelchair Scripting (up to 2.5hrs)

The process of working out what type of power wheelchair is needed and what features should be considered can be daunting for therapists who are new to prescribing assistive technology. We’ll take you through the questions that should be asked when scripting a power wheelchair and guide you through what types of power wheelchairs to consider and which features may be required.

To Script or Not to Script – Scripted vs Non-Scripted Power Wheelchairs (up to 2.5hrs)

There are some important factors to consider when determining whether your client requires a scripted or unscripted power wheelchair. Many people in unscripted chairs may actually be much better off in a scripted chair. However, before making a choice, you need to take into account the type of disability your client has, their daily needs, their lifestyle and how to maximise their comfort. Budget and funding will also need to be addressed.
