U.S. Rehab Tech Training at Heartland Addresses All Levels of Experience
on July 21, 2021
Complex rehab providers attending VGM’s 20th Heartland Conference will have the opportunity to increase their expertise in repairing and programming complex rehab wheelchairs as part of U.S. Rehab’s Tech Training.
This two-day seminar on power and manual wheelchair repair includes a beginner, intermediate, and advanced track to allow education content to be tailored to the attendees' skill levels.
Technical trainers from MK Battery, Motion Concepts, Permobil, Sunrise Medical, and Avid Rehab will present product specifics, basic repair strategies, troubleshooting, and programming.
The Beginner Track is suggested for techs with less than one year of experience as it provides a basic foundation training for new technicians.
We suggest that techs with at least one year of experience and are looking at moving into a rehab tech position attend the intermediate track as it provides an overview for seating and positioning, CRT wheelchairs, and power programming introduction.
We suggest ATPs looking for in-depth technical training or experienced techs with an understanding of basic electronics, programming, seating, and positioning attend this track.
U.S. Rehab is also bringing Director of Reimbursement Dan Fedor to present on “Reimbursement for Techs” as part of the seminar. Fedor will also be leading panel discussion as part of the education track dedicated to rehab.
U.S. Rehab’s Tech Training takes place Sept. 14-15 at the Waterloo Convention Center. Tech Training attendees will be able to attend the Heartland keynote on Wednesday morning as well as all evening social events. For more information and to register, click here.
