Description

Description

This course provides an overview of childhood gait, walking pre-requisites and tri-planar biomechanical efficiency. Dynamic orthoses with case studies are reviewed as therapeutic options.

This 4-hr lecture is intended for all Physical Therapists and PT Assistants working with children, regardless of skill level and practice setting.

Dinner will be provided.

Objectives

Gait Analysis:

  • Understand and critique how gait is analyzed across pediatric practice settings.

Pre-Walking:

  • Explain the role of pre-walking development skills on bone and soft tissue modeling.

Gait and Develpment:

  • Examine typical and atypical skeletal development and alignment along the lower extremity.

Tri-Planar Biomechanics:

  • Compare calcaneal mobility in a thermoplastic closed heel AFO versus and open heeled carbon composite AFO.

Orthotic Intervention:

  • Compare and contrast different models and materials of AFOs and their impacts on muscle function, foot mobility, and resulting functional or dysfunctional outcomes.
