Amputee Walking School
Registration is now open for the next session of Amputee Walking School, Wednesday, September 19, 2018.
Todd and Dennis will be there 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, Amputee Walking School features two segments. The afternoon segment is a learning session for professionals, 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 next event on the AWS calendar will be Wednesday, November 14, 2018. The November session will be held at the Dankmeyer Linthicum office, so put that one on your calendar! We would love to see you! You can read all about prior sessions and see a LOT of pictures by scrolling through our AWS news below.
