This session will consider the needs of a variety of patient presentations - how best to support your patients from a physiotherapeutic point of view, how to optimise the rest environment and make use of efficient support systems.

Strategies for proactive management of recumbent patients will also be considered in relation to associated pathology and we will discuss a range of support techniques and ergonomics that can optimise independence, mobility and comfort.

A concise overview of canine biomechanics will also be included to deepen understanding and allow you to offer the best targeted support alongside manual techniques; looking at when (and when not) to use them.
