Empower Your Practice with Applied Product Standards

Ever wonder how products get to market? Ever wonder how these products are tested? Attend this interactive discussion and presentation and you will find out. The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on wheelchair standards at the University of Pittsburgh aims to spread awareness about how frontline providers can use test standards in a clinically meaningful way to improve quality care and call-out concerns of quality. This webinar will be structured as a dialogue between clinicians, manufacturers, standards experts, suppliers and wheelchair users to address poor product quality and its adverse effects. Practitioners will walk away from our training with the ability to approach suppliers with questions that empower their patients’ product decisions. It’s time for performance standard test results to drive product quality and improve patients care.


Refund information for both attendee registration and exhibitor booths is available hereHotel refund policies are at the discretion of the hotel, and not the responsibility of The University of Pittsburgh, the ISS organizers note.
