Our collaborators Susan Hillman and James Hollington, from the SMART Centre, NHS Scotland, have been awarded Best Free Paper for our  ‘Clinical Interpretation of ISO 16840-2, Measurements for Wheelchair Seating Cushions’ presentation at the Posture and Mobility Group (PMG) National Training Event.

Their stand also attracted a lot of interest from clinicians, manufacturers and the ISO and BSI committees.

This collaborative project is focused on checking the clinical relevance of the BS ISO standard 1640-2:2007 on Wheelchair seating for the determination of physical and mechanical characteristics of devices intended to manage tissue integrity, in this case, wheelchair seat cushions. Our paper can be read here: PMG 2012.
