Session Description

We will look at a new program to provide mobility and a greater quality of life to veterans. The program will include instructions on the ability to measure the abilities of the patient and determine the appropriate bike they will benefit from. We will also look at creating a component of accountability to ensure the bikes are used, as well as a social aspect of a riding club that will be coordinated by staff at the veteran’s facilities. This program is provided free to veterans throughout the country and part of the purpose of the presentation is to promote the program to therapists in the field as a resource.

Learning Outcomes - Provide three measurable learning objectives for the session that relate to the NCTRC Job Anaylsis.

1.  Participants should be able to determine if the program would work in their environment

2.  Participants should be able to determine the type of bike that the veteran would benefit the most from.

3.  Participants will have an understanding of the program, including the riding program.
