Registration is now open for the June 19 session of 2019 Amputee Walking School!
Join us as, along with Todd and Dennis, as Dankmeyer co-hosts with the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UM Rehab). More formally known as Advanced Gait Training for Individuals with Lower Extremity Amputations, this session of Amputee Walking School features two segments. The afternoon segment is a learning session for professionals, titled Gait Training in the Patient with Amputation. This is followed by an evening session where those with lower limb loss and their families come to work with the pros on various kinds of exercises. The evening session is FREE, but be sure and register so that we can be ready for you.
While you are waiting for June 19 to get here, have some fun watching Todd and Dennis in a Facebook Live video where they explain the program and demonstrate some exercises. They discuss the importance of physical therapy for amputees, and encourage amputees to track their steps, setting daily goals for themselves.
