IntimateRider to be Presented at Upcoming Sexuality Conference
IntimateRider will be presented at the Spinal Cord Injury and Sexuality Conference. Location for the May 14 – 15, 2015 event is New York City’s Mount Sinai Medical Center. People who will benefit most from the two day conference include adults with spinal cord and related injuries, their spouses and partners and relatives. Occupational and physical therapists, clinicians, employers with employees who have physical disabilities and other professionals who work in the physical disabilities field will also benefit from attending.
The IntimateRider is being showcased at the conference because the IntimateRider is a revolutionary product that improves sexual mobility for adults with physical disabilities. Built with patented technology, The IntimateRider empowers people with a spinal cord injury (SCI) to positively counter a leading concern that adults with disabilities and their partners are challenged with, namely how and if they will be able to enjoy sexual intimacy following an accident, military injury or advancing birth defect.
Unlike other SCI products, the IntimateRider does not rely on motors or springs. Precision focused joint bearings, a solid steel frame and low center of gravity make it easy for the upper part of the body to improve overall sexual intimacy. Designed by the pioneering company of the same name, the IntimateRider stores away easily, not requiring assembly.
In addition to the IntimateRider, the May 14 – 15, 2015 Spinal Cord Injury and Sexuality Conference will feature other innovative products. Seminars, workshops, question and answer sessions and panel discussions will also be held. Topics of panel discussions, workshops and seminars include accessible tantra and mindfulness, sexual response cycle, sensate focus, sexual positions and medical aspects of SCI.
Networking sessions allow participants to meet and greet each other. There will also be opportunity for conference attendees to interact with speakers. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Michael Tepper. During Dr. Tepper’s keynote address myths about SCI and sexuality will be discussed.
Other scheduled presenters are Rebecca Torosian, an intimacy expert; Dr. Angela Riccobono, a Mount Sinai Medical Center senior psychologist; Lauren Varriale, an occupational therapist and Dr. Jennifer Gomez, a Mount Sinai Hospital SCI specialist. Conference sponsors include Independence Care System, Mount Sinai and the National Spinal Cord Injury Association’s Greater New York Chapter.
Focus areas of the conference highlight key points that the IntimateRider is designed to deal with. Chief among these areas are redefining orgasm, creativity and adaptations, friction and energetic models and healthy eroticism. People interested in attending the conference are encouraged to contact the Greater New York Chapter of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association. Registration is required to attend.
