Understanding Cushion Properties with the Help of ANSI/RESNA and ISO Standards
Date: January 14th, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST
Speaker: Kara Kopplin, Director of Regulatory Science
For decades, test standards have been developed around the world to measure and characterize wheelchair seating solutions, specifically wheelchair cushions. These standardized “bench tests” allow for an objective, scientific approach to analyze support surfaces and understand the potential benefits to the wheelchair client.
In this webinar, participants will gain an understanding of the network of standards committees, including ANSI/RESNA in the US, CEN in Europe, and ISO internationally. An overview of the current standards work will be presented, with consideration given to how these test measures relate to client needs, market and regulatory requirements, and the new international clinical guidelines recently published by NPIAP/EPUAP/PPPIA for pressure injury prevention.
In addition: GoToWebinar also works best in Google Chrome if you have that available.
