Decoding and Understanding Transfemoral Gait Biomechanics and Gait Deviations
Presented by Jared Howell, MS, CPO, LPO
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2613 Level: Advanced2 Hours
The course will focus on correctly identifying and understanding gait and gait deviations that occur in individuals with transfemoral amputations. The curriculum will focus on the practical analysis of gait abnormalities in transfemoral amputees and how to identify musculoskeletal vs prosthetic causes. This course will not cover fundamentals of gait, but will instead focus specifically on variations and deviations common to individuals wearing above knee prostheses. It will be expected that participants will have a thorough knowledge of human locomotion, and have some experience in gait training individuals with transfemoral amputation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
