RESNA Conference – Toronto Convention Center
255 Front St W
Toronto, ON M5V 2W6

Are you attending the RESNA conference in Toronto this year? If so, please join Tamara, Sammie Wakefield and Brian Burkhardt for their workshop on Hammie, a posable, simplified anatomical model that was created by Sammie as a teaching tool about postural problems in sitting and lying. Come see Hammie, learn about his design and the process that led to him being 3D printed. And most important how he is being used to educate about complications arising from tight hamstrings, hip flexors and what to do about them in sitting and lying. Hammie was launched at the 35th International Seating Symposium in Pittsburgh and was a great hit! To see Hammie, check out www.meethammie.com.
