Mobility and Wheelchair Training
We are committed to imparting basic knowledge on mobility and wheelchair training to paraplegic wheelchair users in theory and practice.
It is our aim to demonstrate the optimal use of the wheelchair in everyday situations and to teach how to expand your personal radius of action. We offer various courses and workshops in our premises. In mobility and wheelchair training we distinguish between two different training levels - depending on the needs and demands of the course participants.
Main focuses of the mobility and wheelchair training are e.g.:
Teaching theoretical knowledge about wheelchairs, e.g. inclination, axis adjustment, centre of gravity
Learning the driving technique in a wheelchair
Improvement of everyday mobility
Overcoming thresholds with different levels of difficulty
Practice transfers at the same height
Tilting while standing and safe tilting in various situations
Driving inclines in the tilted state
Learning the fall technique on a mat with and without support
Using public transport
Standing up in a fallen down wheelchair with and without auxiliary person
Independent driving on the most difficult floor profiles
Our range of classes on the subject of mobility is supplemented by special classes such as "The Shoulder - Drive Motor of the Wheelchair Userr" or the "Transfer Workshop".
In the class "The Shoulder - Drive Motor of the Wheelchair User" you will not only learn the anatomical and physiological basics of the shoulder joint but also techniques for strengthening, stretching, relaxing and perceiving the shoulder.
The transfer workshop, on the other hand, focuses on energy-saving transfers from A to B, learning transfer techniques and movement transitions that can be used to better carry out the activities of daily life.
