Power wheelchair assessment and prescription for the bariatric client: A practical guide

Presenter: Cathy Choi

In the current healthcare climate, occupational therapists may find themselves with less time to complete assessments for wheelchairs and increased pressure to be more efficient.  Simultaneously, due to the rising prevalence of morbid obesity, referrals for bariatric power wheelchairs are on the rise. Bariatric power wheelchair assessment and prescription, however, requires a thorough and individualized process.  There is added complexity unique to the seating and mobility needs of bariatric clients that must be considered. The focus of this webinar is to provide occupational therapists with an essential guide of factors to consider when assessing and prescribing bariatric power wheelchairs.

After taking place in this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Identify five measurements essential for appropriate bariatric assessment and wheelchair prescription.
  2. Describe four common misconceptions that greatly impact bariatric wheelchair prescription.
  3. Evaluate the need for three advanced power functions when assessing for bariatric power mobility.
