GBC Grand Rounds

Parasport in Canada has grown significantly over the past few decades and as O and P professionals we should be looking to increase our contribution to the continued growth of Parasport. Often times O and P professionals develop a key connection with their clients from an early stage of the their rehab program. This relationship is one that lasts for years in many cases allowing the professional an opportunity to work with and introduce their clients to opportunities within the Parasport community. My presentation would address from a hands on perspective the role of an O and P professional in Parasport and attempt to highlight some potential misconceptions of the athletes functional requirements. Although there are multiple sporting options within the Parasport world the presentation will focus on wheelchair athletics and the recognition/ acceptance of a wheelchair sport for a functional prosthetic and orthotic user/ client.
