Did you know that when your body overheats, there is an increased risk of developing a seizure? For those with epilepsy, the risk of experiencing a seizure is even more likely when they have a difficult time managing their body temperature, for example, due to close fitting seating systems, environmental temperature, or medication. During this webinar we will discuss the relationship between epilepsy and heat, how this works, who is more vulnerable, prevention methods, and the influence of the WheelAir system on temperature.
· Learn about the relationship between heat and epilepsy
· Case studies showing the effect of heat and moisture regulation with epilepsy patients
· And learn how to score the general heat and moisture risk of your client with our risk matrix
About WheelAir: The WheelAir system is the first temperature and moisture control system designed to fit any wheelchair. It disperses air evenly across the seat surface to lower your temperature, remove moisture build-up, and keep skin dry and clean.
