Because Seating is our passion, Medifab sent two consultants to the 28th ISS held in Vancouver Canada. Our Spex Wheelchair Seating systems we consider will continue to lead the way globally, hence we wanted to learn as much as we could at this international annual event!

This international symposium addressed current and future developments in the areas of seating, positioning and mobility. Topic areas included service delivery, product development, research and outcomes.


  1. Identify and compare new and existing positioning and mobility equipment
  2. Discuss the emerging research evidence supporting seating and mobility practices
  3. Locate resources for seating and mobility practice
  4. Compare and discuss new seating and mobility techniques and interventions
  5. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of a number of innovative service delivery models
