Description

Gait and Microprocessor Knees Training

Hosted in partnership with Ottobock By: Progressive O&P


Back by popular demand, and for those who were not able to attend the session in 2017, we are pleased to offer the Gait & Microprocessor Knee Training Seminar. This seminar will provide physical therapists, physicians and other healthcare providers with an overview of the functions and benefits of prosthetic knees, specifically the C-leg, Genium and X3. Both lecture and demonstration with patient models will be included. A review of the gait cycle and how individuals with amputations compensate in their walking will be covered. Gait training, balance and weight shifting exercises will be included. Tips for training a patient to utilize the functions of a microprocessor knee will be demonstrated during the symposium. A review of current research related to MPK technology efficacy will also be discussed.

Please note that If you attended this seminar in 2017 you may not be eligible for credits, please check with your Association.
