About the Speaker: Esther Brücke, Physical Therapist
Esther Brücker started her career as a physical therapist in 2004. From 2004 – 2010 she worked in a rehabilitation clinic being responsible for the treatment of geriatric patients as well as amputees. At that time she started with ongoing education in the fields of clinical gait observation, biomechanics of the lower limb and gait training with lower limb amputees.
In 2010 Esther joined the Ottobock Academy. Within the Academy, her responsibilities include patient training and test fittings, performing training for medical experts and developing training concepts for new products.
Having previously supported prosthetics for upper & lower limb, orthotics and neurostimulation she gained a comprehensive insight into technology and therapy.
Currently her main focus is on lower limb prosthetics including training with mechatronic / mechanical knee joints and feet. Her ambition is to create good interaction between the physical therapist and the prosthetist in order to optimize the prosthetic fitting and ultimately the patient’s quality of life.
