We are excited to host our first annual DASH event. This lower limb prosthetic event to provide the healthcare team, providers, and patients an opportunity to collaborate through education and mobility clinics. The day will begin with a continuing education lecture, led by world-renowned prosthetist, Kevin Carroll, and will transition into an afternoon full of activities and training for people with limb loss and limb difference.
Successful Rehabilitation of the Lower Limb Amputee (3.0 CE)
Course Description: This presentation is a must for healthcare and rehabilitation professionals who work with or care for prosthetic patients. The 3-hour lecture includes hands-on demonstrations with patient models and provides an opportunity for therapists to work with the latest prosthetic technology including microprocessor prosthetics and CAD CAM imaging. Other topics will cover Medicare guidelines, socket fit and assessment, patient evaluation techniques and other current prosthetic issues and concerns.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this program, learners will be able to: 1) understand how to practice appropriate prosthetic management of bilateral transfemoral amputees and management of congenital limb deficiencies; 2) identify appropriate socket fit and assessment techniques that will have the greatest benefit for the prosthetic patient; 3) evaluate common prosthetic gait anomalies; 4) identify their own patient's ability or potential for ambulation with variable cadence; 5) compare and contrast post treatment assessments and therapies experienced by the amputee; 6) explain treatment goals based on testimony of the course speaker.
