Course: #2605Level: Advanced2 Hours 178 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

Please note: This course is also offered in a series of recordings titled "Decoding and Understanding Transtibial and Transfemoral Gait Biomechanics and Gait Deviations," course 2648.

The course will focus on correctly identifying and understanding gait and gait deviations that occur in individuals with transtibial amputations. Curriculum will focus on practical analysis of gait abnormalities in transtibial amputees and how to identify musculoskeletal vs prosthetic causes. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
