Lawall Prosthetics & Orthotics Partners with Ottobock North America for a Pioneering CEU Course

Langhorne, PA – Lawall Prosthetics & Orthotics, in collaboration with Ottobock North America, is proud to announce an upcoming Continuing Education Unit (CEU) course titled “Rehabilitation of Individuals Using Microprocessor Knees.” This highly anticipated event is scheduled for January 22, 2024, from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST at Lawall Prosthetics & Orthotics in Langhorne, PA.

The course, primarily designed for physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and other allied health practitioners, aims to provide an in-depth understanding of lower extremity limb loss, normal and pathological gait mechanics, and the sophisticated technology of microprocessor knees. The seminar will focus on enhancing safety and mobility for individuals with limb loss, covering crucial aspects such as evaluation techniques, posture and gait analysis, and the creation of tailored therapeutic exercise programs.

Led by Chris Doerger PT, CP, a certified prosthetist and physical therapist with expertise in biomechanics, gait training, and CAD CAM technology, the course offers an engaging mix of lectures and discussions. Participants can expect to deepen their understanding of the functional differences between mechanical and microprocessor knees, use performance-based outcome measures for Medicare K Level assignment, and create more effective rehabilitation programs for patients with transfemoral amputation.

This course is accredited by the Pennsylvania Board of Physical Therapy Examiners and promises to be a valuable learning experience for healthcare professionals looking to expand their knowledge and skills in the field of prosthetics and orthotics.
