ATP and specialised seating teams alike will appreciate the 2018 publication of Seating and Wheeled Mobility: A Clinical Resource Guide. It is a comprehensive instructional clinical package (440pp) providing practical assessment instruction, clinical reasoning consideration and process required to optimise wheeled-mobility function with specialised wheelchair technologies."

"Seating and Wheeled Mobility: A Clinical Resource Guide is an amazingly dense text and an extraordinary sector resource. It imparts a range of expert analyses of current evidence-based practices for effective team approach aimed at informing competent seating teams and participating consumers. It provides clinical and service practice backgrounding as to the ‘what, how, when, why and why not’ procedures to support developing specialist skills essential for more sophisticated seating-wheeled mobility prescription. In doing so it addresses a wider seating audience."
