Event description

Description

Participating in a regular fitness routine has benefits beyond physical health. It is important that individuals with limb loss improve their cardiovascular fitness, strength, balance, and level of socialization after their course of rehabilitation ends. First Fit reviews guidelines for fitness, exercise readiness, and the use of lower limb prosthetics in sport. Exercises that specifically benefit the limb loss population are discussed and demonstrated. Upon completion of the course, rehabilitation professionals will have the ability to immediately apply this information to their daily practice.

This course is delivered in a lecture and lab format. The morning session is a lecture presentation on the topics listed above. The afternoon session is a lab format that includes community members with limb loss who are interested in improving their fitness. Therapists and participants work together to learn how to incorporate limb loss-specific activities into a fitness routine.

Your instructor is Chris Doerger PT, CP. She is a physical therapist and prosthetist in the Orlando, Florida area.

This course is approved for 5.0 CCUs through ProCert.

Lunch is generously provided to all who attend.

Please wear clothing/shoes suitable for exercise and working with patients.
