Description


Utilizing Orthoses to Optimize Patient Outcomes: Stance Control to Orthotronic Mobility


Hosted By: Advanced Prosthetics

Advanced Prosthetics logo

Patients who have been restricted to using crutches or wheelchairs can achieve a whole new level of safety and a more natural gait than they had before. Research has shown that patients can get better function, satisfaction, and safety from a microprocessor controlled device than from a traditional knee ankle foot orthosis.*

Find out more about how microprocessor-controlled technology is changing the KAFO landscape during this presentation and course. This seminar includes clinical presentation as well as hands-on training and patient demonstration so you can see first-hand the impact of walking with a locked KAFO versus the C-Brace®. In addition, Ottobock AFO, KAFO and bracing solutions will be presented.
