Have you ever been intimidated to try new skills in your wheelchair? We can help! NeuroLab 360 has just received sponsorship from the Permobil Foundation to offer a free manual wheelchair skills class! This class will meet on the second Thursday of each month beginning May 12th from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at their clinic in San Diego.
Included will be a brief education talk on topics covering optimal positioning, pressure relief, and more. From there the class will begin and will work on exercises to prevent shoulder pain and injury, optimize push mechanics, and then work on higher-level wheelchair skills such as transfers to and from the floor, static and dynamic wheelies, ascending/descending curbs, ramps, and stairs, and more!
