Interface pressure mapping is used to show pressure points when someone is sitting or lying down. Too much pressure at one point can lead to skin breakdowns or other injuries. Pressure mapping technology is useful for determining appropriate seating and positioning for users of wheelchairs. These trainings are intended for individuals with disabilities, family members, home care providers, personal care attendants and others working with individuals with paralysis-causing conditions. Learn how to borrow and use pressure mapping technology. Help prevent life-threatening injuries!

The trainings will be conducted by Mary Jo Wagner, OTR/L, ATP, of the Department of Developmental Services; and Ron Resnick and Sarah Bandzak of Blue Chip Medical Products, Inc.
