Best Practice Guidelines

PMG hosts the seven best practice guideline documents (BPGs) that were presented at the International Conference on Posture & Wheeled Mobility (Glasgow 2010). These documents cover the following topics:

Transportation of People Seated in Wheelchairs; Pressure Mapping for Seating; Standardized Wheelchair Seating Measures; Seat-Elevating Devices for Wheelchair Use; Empowering Children and Adults with Cognitive Disabilities to Learn Skills for Powered Mobility; Maintaining Upper Extremity Health; Powered Mobility for Children.

Discussions are currently taking place about reviewing the guidelines, with the review of BPG1 - Transportation of People Seated in Wheelchairs already under way.  While this process continues, you are still able to read the originally published guidelines via the Best Practice Guidelines 2010 link in the left hand menu.
