Chair Repositioning Workshop 

 

 

 

Overview 

Challenges occur with chair repositioning when a profile doesn’t suit a certain chair type anymore and when the environment makes it hard to reposition. We work with the attendees to establish what scenarios they find difficult. We are aware that resources are set, and team members have to work with what is available. However, there are occasions when repositioning a client is not sufficient and specialist seating may be required. We will highlight how to recognise the indicators, when a seating referral may be appropriate and who to refer to.
