Lunchtime Talk: Sit Tall After Stroke
March 19, 2018 @ 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM| Free
A health talk will cover the key principles of selecting appropriate wheelchairs and chairs for people who have suffered stroke, and how to maintain optimal seating posture through therapeutic activities.
One of the most common issues in people after stroke is asymmetrical body alignment due to weakness on one side of the body. This often leads to permanent body structural changes (e.g. change of spine shapes, shoulder semi-dislocation) and muscular pain. These can affect the patient’s body image, ability in self-care and quality of life.
