Dankmeyer Academy is our new series of continuing education courses for therapists!
For your convenience, these courses are brought to your location once a quarter. This is a personal, ongoing education series taught by a Dankmeyer clinician, who will take care of all the details to allow you to complete the series for your continuing education credits. Clinicians Nina Bondre, CPO and Kelsey Kasten, CPO have the newest, most relevant curriculum for therapists who treat patients who benefit from a prosthesis or orthosis. The courses have been submitted to the Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for review.
The series includes one hour courses on the following topics:
- Prosthetic Overview
- Transtibial Prosthetics
- Lower Extremity Orthotics: Part I
- Lower Extremity Orthotics: Part II
- and more.......
How about this... from the Prosthetics overview, you will be able to:
- Identify and describe causes of amputation and amputation demographics
- Identify and describe various levels of amputation
- Differentiate between available modality options for all levels of amputation
- Differentiate between functional levels for all levels of amputation.
- Describe the prosthetic rehabilitation process.

We believe in a team approach to patient care, and would love to bring Dankmeyer Academy to your location as a part of that team approach. To reserve your seats in the Academy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to accommodate your facility.
