    Shauney's Bio:
    I graduated from CSS in 2014 with a B.A. in psychology with a biology minor and completed the M.S. EXP program at CSS in 2015. I am now a 2nd year physical therapy student at CSS and I'm loving it! I chose St. Scholastica based on the welcoming environment. I played softball at CSS during my four years of undergraduate studies. I am now the Captain of the CSS Love Your Melon Crew and a PT club rep. I enjoy the company of my friends, being outside, playing volleyball, relaxing and my cat Mittens!

Wheelchair Evaluations

Another one of the many topics we cover in PT School is wheelchairs, how to operate them, how to fit them, and how to educate our patients on their wheelchairs.

We make sure that the seat cushions are just right so they have adequate pressure relief, that it fits the width, height, and depth of the patient.

We also need to keep in mind what functions the patient would like to have. For example, do they need special wheels to go on different terrains, do they want special colors, does it need a special grip on the wheels, etc.

My classmate Mat was being the example for our professor Mike to teach us how to evaluate for proper wheelchair fittings.
