Wheelchair Seating, Mobility, and Assistive Technology: Putting the Parts Together is organized by Rancho Research Institute (RRI), Inc and will be held from Sep 07 - 08, 2019 at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, Downey, California, United States of America. Who should attend: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapist Assistants • Assistive Technology Professionals • DME Providers • Administrators Credits: This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of CEUs pending:12.0 contact hours (1.2 CEUs). Description: This two-day course provides participants with basic concepts of seating and positioning, wheelchair mobility, and assistive technology for everyday use. An interactive approach will help to identify limitations and to pair wheelchair and seating technology to optimize function and independence. Interactive adult and pediatric case studies will be used to enhance learning concepts. Asymmetries and pressure-relieving concepts will be highlighted in the selection of seating components and wheelchair configuration. The latest research findings in seating and mobility will be discussed relative to optimizing wheelchair configuration for efficiency in wheelchair propulsion. Course Objectives: • Upon completion of this course, you will be able to : • Complete a wheelchair mat evaluation. • Identify three asymmetries that may impact wheelchair positioning. • Explain the difference of the pressure relieving concepts. • Complete measurements for a manual wheelchair. • Compare and contrast three different types of power wheelchair drives. • Identify three access methods to a phone and/or tablet used by persons with upper extremity limitations.

Vestibular Rehabilitation Course: Assessment and Treatment for Occupational Therapy Practitioners is organized by Rancho Research Institute (RRI), Inc and will be held from Sep 28 - 29, 2019 at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, Downey, California, United States of America. Target Audience: • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants Description: This course covers vestibular rehabilitation principles for treating patients with dizziness, vertigo, coordination, balance, motor, postural, vestibular, visual motor, perceptual, sensory organization and motion disorders due to disease, toxicity, infection, vestibular, tumors, trauma, CNS, and congenital disorders. This course is designed to offer the rehabilitation clinician an additional frame of reference for treatment that can positively affect motor skills, balance, posture, perceptual skills, tolerances of motion, and eliminate vertigo. Vestibular interventions appear simplistic but the clinician must develop an understanding of the complexities of the system to have successful treatment outcomes. This course will emphasize the importance of clinical assessments for developing functional goals and treatments as a series of exercises for the clinician to select, grade and develop on a continuum. The course will describe recognition of vestibular disorders by symptoms and manifestations, and provide an overview of vestibular anatomy/physiology that is the basis for recognition, assessment and treatment. Assessments for vestibular, sensory organization, positional vertigo, balance, ocular motor, and reflex integration, including the vestibular ocular reflex and the vestibulospinal reflex will be described. Specific vestibular pathologies and treatment interventions will be presented. Treatment techniques, video case demonstrations, problem solving exercises, and interactive lab practice will be included to help in the development of competencies. Course Objectives: • Describe vestibular rehab and balance process • Apply physiology principles related to functional balance • Provide neurophysiological rationale for treatment • Describe the pathophysiology of vestibular and CNS disorders • Demonstrate repositioning techniques for BPPV • Demonstrate evaluation procedures for balance, vertigo and oculomotor functions • Demonstrate appropriate evidence-based treatment techniques • List precautions for utilizing this treatment approach Course Outline: • Symptoms, incidences and manifestations of vestibular disorders and need for intervention • Overview of Motor Development ○ Vestibular System Development ○ Reflex Integration • Vestibular Anatomy/Physiology ○ Central Nervous System Connections ○ Vestibular, Ocular, Cervical, and Spinal Reflexes • Vestibular Pathologies and Diagnoses ○ Childhood Paroxysmal Vertigo, Post Traumatic Vertigo, Disequilibrium of Aging (Presbystasis), BPPV, Neuronitis, Ototoxicity, Central Lesions/Impairments, Meniere’s disease, • Congenital, Vestibular Migraine, Mal de DeBarquement • Hyperactive vs. Hypoactive System • Evaluation of Vestibular Disorders (VOR, Balance, Gait, Motion, Positional, Peripheral and Central Vertigo/ Nystagmus) • Treatment Interventions for Problem Specific Disorders • Case Reports, Videos and Evidenced Based Results.
