Participants will learn how to provide care from initial limb loss through community reintegration. The course will also include current advances in prosthetic rehabilitation, management of phantom limb and residual limb pain, and provide a model to interdisciplinary approach to patient management.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
• Describe the prosthetic rehabilitation progression.
• Perform initial gait training activities with patients that have limb loss.
• Identify typical prosthetic gait deviations and learn methods to improve them during formal therapeutic interventions.
• Communicate the expectations of the prosthetic rehabilitation process to patients and their families.
