Event description

Description

Description

This course provides an overview of contemporary models of human gait and focuses on restoring function to patients with pathological gait patterns. Dynamic principles of gait are described using progressively more refined models (Interveted Pendulum, Dynamic Walking and Rocker-Based Inverted Pendulum). Pathological gait patterns are described that result from the disruption of key dynamic and biomechanical events. Participants are guided through the process of establishing appropriate orthotic management and rehabilitation goals. Specific orthotic interventions are described and their effectiveness evaluated using a case study approach.

This 4-hr lecture is intended for all Physical Therapists and PT Assistants, regardless of skill level and practice setting. The content will be most applicable for therapists working with patients with footdrop.

Dinner will be provided.

Objectives

  • Assessment & application of gait restoration
