what are we trying to accomplish
What are we trying to Accomplish
  • Understand how the information we are about to share today, does or does not relate to seating and positioning in a tractor seat.
  • Increase awareness about what the tractor seating issues are.
  • Identify what some of the issues are from a clinical, engineering, and functional perspective. Why does a farmer need to modify their seat to begin with?

Continued…..

  • Keep safety and liability in mind always.
  • Do not focus on any “one type of limitation” (disability).
  • Not “ready for solutions”.
what is our goal today
What is our “goal” today
  • Create a top "x" list of issues that AgrAbility staff can agree on, which are the most serious and/or in need of research or development towards solutions (this may not necessarily be the highest occurrence, or most costly, etc.).
  • Once we’ve identified the top issues, document the information learned/shared today for future use in working with seating specialists, seat designers, engineers, therapists, funding agencies, etc.
how are we going to do that
How are we going to do that
  • Dr Willkomm will review with us C. Kerry Jones' “10 commandments of seating and positioning” from the 2004 National Training Workshop.
  • Hopefully, this will get us all on the same page, and help us remember the terminology and basic seating and positioning principles. Can we apply this knowledge and these principles?

How are we going to do that (cont.)
  • You were each asked to bring your seating issues, problems, concerns, and ideas to this interactive session and to be prepared to work collectively on the issue of the seating and positioning problems that are faced when working with farmers and ranchers with disabilities.
  • After Dr Willkomm’s presentation, you will break into small groups and be tasked to share those problems, and discuss them as a group to tease out all the issues surrounding each "problem". A group facilitator will assist and someone will take notes.
how are we going to do that cont7
How are we going to do that (cont.)
  • The small groups will meet as long as necessary, but we’ll need to re-group about 20 minutes after the break.
  • Then we will get back together and each group will report its findings, which we will collectively capture.
  • Assuming groups will have identified similar issues, we will work collectively (everyone) to first categorize each/the issues.
how are we going to do that cont8
How are we going to do that (cont.)
  • As our last exercise, the whole group (everyone) will work to reach consensus to select those top "issues" (vote, discussion, etc..) we as AgrAbility professionals would like to see researched, addressed first, etc., depending upon what the identified seating and positioning issue might be.
how are we going to do that cont9
How are we going to do that (cont.)
  • Publish “note” to listserv for AgrAbility Project review.
  • Publish “findings” to the web site (in the National Training Workshop [NTW] agenda page) for AgrAbility Project review.
  • Look at a follow up session for the 2006 NTW.

Look at another “related” industry
  • If time allows:

- Review the “Evaluating a Cab” checklist from “Off Highway Equipment” (March2005).
