Providing reliable low-tension hand pressure during physical treatments for oncology patients can be achieved through off-body training.

This short course will take learners through the history of hand compression testing, training methods, and the devices available. 

Denise Stewart will guide you in how to prepare your own compression testing device, and then take you through an off-body training process in low-tension palpation skills for oncology patients.

The DIY materials will cost under $200 AUD and under $100 USD

Developing reliable and measurable compression skills will offer therapists more data to share in a range of professional situations and offer a new approach to managing workplace injuries for manual therapists.
