Motivation Australia’s Walking Aid Training Package (WATP) is aimed at increasing safe and effective provision of walking aids by hospital and community based health, rehabilitation and community workers.
By the end of the training participants should have more knowledge about how to:
- Assess the needs of a person who may benefit from a walking aid
- Select an appropriate walking aid for a user, considering their environment and physical needs
- Fit an appropriate walking aid to a user and teach them how to use it safely
- Follow up a walking aid user and provide any necessary adjustments, maintenance or additional user training
