Recently, my colleague, Ken Kalinowski, and I presented a workshop on the Power of Programming at the Canadian Seating and Mobility Conference (CSMC) in Toronto. (Ken is the Senior Service Technician and Technical Trainer with Sunrise Medical. He teaches Power Technical Training Programs in Canada and the United States.) I think it is fabulous to have the opportunity to learn hands-on, but for those of you who did not have the opportunity to attend CSMC and who are not very familiar with programming for power wheelchairs, this month’s article will help to increase your comfort level with the very basics of programming for power chairs.
