Get Registered for Fall 2016 Amputee Walking School

Registration for the November 16, 2016 event is open.  There are two sessions.  

All events will be held at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UMROI) on Kernan Drive in Baltimore. This series is co-hosted by the Amputee Support Group, UMROI and Dankmeyer.  It aims to teach and practice training exercises for lower limb amputees.  Todd Schaffhauser and Dennis Oehler, Paralympians and self-styled “professional amputees”, co-founded the Amputee Walking School in 1989 to take amputees beyond traditional rehabilitation.  Their stories and training sessions are an inspiration to the professionals, amputees and their families who attend.

Previous amputee participants are encouraged to attend more than one session.  If you haven't been before, you might find reports of previous sessions fun and inspiring! Please scroll down through OLDER news on this page.

The morning session is for professionals.  This is a very inexpensive way to earn CEU's.   Information for this session 11/16/16 from 1-7pm, can be found by clicking here.  To register for this session  click here.
