Trauma Informed Care Principles for Rehabilitation Professionals
Presented by Jennifer Stone, PT, DPT, OCS, PHC
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3975Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Acute and chronic trauma is very prevalent in the United States, and have been tied strongly to adverse health behaviors and outcomes. This course provides the rehabilitation professional with an overview of the physiology of trauma, as well as practical tools to work with patients who are experiencing trauma. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Static Splinting Series
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4063Level: Intermediate4 Hours
The static splinting 4-course series consists of an overview of the history of splint fabrication, the advances in the splinting and orthotics arena, and an anatomical review of key structures and landmarks. A detailed demonstration of wrist orthotics is presented as well as radial gutter/thumb spica splints, dorsal and volar wrist cock-ups, functional position with an intrinsic plus modification option, hand-based thumb spica, finger gutter and MP joint blocking splints. The application and use of a spring finger extension splint, oval 8 splints as well as static progressive finger flexion and extension splints are included.Finally, the fabrication of a footplate for external fixator application, the application of lower extremity splints and orthotics as well as splinting considerations for specific diagnoses including burn injury occurs in part 4.

Please note: This course series is comprised of the following individual recordings: #4018, #4020, #4022, and #4024

Decoding and Understanding Transtibial and Transfemoral Gait Biomechanics and Gait Deviations
Presented by Jared Howell, MS, CPO, LPO
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2653Level: Advanced4 Hours
Please note: This course series is comprised of the following individual recordings: #2612, and #2651.

Part 1 will focus on correctly identifying and understanding gait and gait deviations that occur in individuals with transtibial amputations and Part 2 will focus understanding gait and gait deviations that occur in individuals with transfemoral amputations. The curriculum will address the practical analysis of gait abnormalities in transtibial and transfemoral amputees and how to identify musculoskeletal vs prosthetic causes.

Decoding and Understanding Transfemoral Gait Biomechanics and Gait Deviations
Presented by Jared Howell, MS, CPO, LPO
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2613Level: 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.
