On January 30, 2019, HME Pediatrics hosted a well-attended event at Surrey’s Civic Hotel for over 60 occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and government and community health representatives entitled “Pediatric Day.” The event consisted of several highly informative workshops presented by industry professional on topics such as pediatric car seat guidelines, proper installation of ceiling lifts and stairlifts, pressure mapping using mattresses, how to use walking slings and sliders, adjusting pediatric manual wheelchairs as a child grows, sling integrity tests and maintenance, maximizing independence in a rigid manual chair, custom seating modifications and how to program chairs from infancy to adult. HME Pediatrics motto is “Enhancing Little Lives.”
HME’s Pediatrics Seating and Mobility Consultants – Prerna Thapar, Michelle Harvey and Nathanael Kroeker, were among some one of the facilitators of the workshop. “This was our first annual Fraser valley pediatrics show,” the Team explains. “Attendees loved the hands-on experiences they received, as well as had opportunities to have any questions they had answered. It was a fantastic opportunity to connect with colleagues, and we look forward to holding another event next year.”
