    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Wheelchair Mobility Lab

Last week in my Neuromuscular Evaluation and Management II class we worked on wheelchair mobility and skills. The activities consisted of performing wheelies, transitioning from chair to floor and floor to chair, chair to mat and mat to chair, going up stairs and downstairs with and without assist, going up and down curbs, and getting back to an upright position after falling. It was quite a bit of fun and gave us a lot of practical knowledge in respect to understanding task requirements involved in wheelchair mobility. Let’s hope I remember the skills and task attributes considering I have a final covering this material in three hours!!!

Two of my classmates figuring out the best way for an individual in a wheelchair to get upright after falling backwards.
