9:10-12:15—Presentation. Wheelchair Securement and Mobility Device Training

The landscape of mobility device transportation is changing dramatically with the
development of new standards aimed at finally making wheelchairs and securement equipment more compatible. We will explore these regulation changes, while also providing an overview of the range of securement equipment currently available. Finally, we will provide the attendees the tools to both select the safest combination of securement equipment and mobility device for their clients, and to develop an effective plan of attack to secure the most difficult mobility devices that don’t yet comply with the new standards.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this Training, participants will be able to:
• Analyze and explain the relevance of the new wheelchair securement best practice standard, ANSI/RESNA WC18, and related ANSI/RESNA WC19.
• Compare and differentiate between the various types of securement equipment, occupant restraints, and docking systems.
• Assess difficult to secure mobility devices and formulate a protocol for evaluating their ability to be safely secured during transport.
• Develop a plan for procuring a vehicle and mobility devices for their clients that will work seamlessly together to maximize safety during transport.
