Wheelchair Skills Clinic Registration
Shepherd Center’s Advanced Wheelchair Skills Clinic aims to provide manual wheelchair users with continued education to learn, review and practice wheelchair skills under the guidance of Shepherd Center therapists. Practicing these skills may translate into increased confidence, safety and independence when performing manual wheelchair skills during daily activities and in the community. Skills covered in this clinic may include propulsion technique, wheelies, curbs, falling safely, uprighting the wheelchair, and negotiating challenging elements such as grass, stones, sand and stairs.
This clinic is appropriate for:
- Persons who use a manual wheelchair as their primary means of independent mobility
- Persons independent in personal care or who will have a caregiver present
- Persons with a working wheelchair that does not currently require maintenance
