Overview

In the field of wheelchair prescription and skills training, you often hear clinicians and users referring to center of gravity (COG).  But, what does it really refer to and how does it impact the function of a manual mobility device?  In this program, we will review evidence related to COG selection and optimal manual wheelchair performance and discuss what it really means from a functional and clinical perspective. We will examine the impact of changes in COG and discuss clinical rationale and treatment approaches to maximize function, safety and maintain upper extremity health for manual wheelchair users. 



Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will identify the optimal Center of Gravity (“COG”) as it relates to current research.
  2. Participants will be able to list three configuration changes that may impact COG.
  3. Participants will be able to provide at least 2 strategies for maintaining safety with a more forward COG.
  4. Participants will understand the education required for clients and caregivers related to wheelchair skills and COG.
