Amputee Walking School - NEW LOCATION and NEW CONTENT!

We are very excited to announce that the Summer Session of the Amputee Walking School on June 21, 2017, will be held at the Linthicum office of Dankmeyer!

We are hosting Todd Schaffhauser, Dennis Oehler, and the staff from University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UMROI) as we work with amputees and their families, as well as healthcare professionals, to learn new exercises and challenge themselves in a safe environment.

I have gained enormously from attending the Amputee Walking School, and would encourage other amputees to participate as well. I expect to be there in June!  - Dr. Andrew Rubin - Lower Limb Amputee

This change of location gives us a chance to share our environment with those attending and allows our staff to meet and greet attendees as they volunteer at the evening session.  This day of fun and education will consist of two sessions. A day long course for healthcare professionals and an evening event which focuses on amputees and their families. If this sounds like something you would like to take part in, then read on!

For healthcare professionals we will be hosting a new course, Lower Limb Prosthesis Prescription and Training Considerations. This course will take place from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and will feature Todd, Dennis, Megan Sions, PT, PHD, DPT from the University of Delaware, and our own Mark Hopkins, PT, CPO, MBA. Registration is currently open for this event. Lunch will be provided.  We do ask that you register early as space is limited.

Our evening event, which takes place from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, brings those with lower limb loss into the activity. This is where amputees, their friends and family can learn ways to be more active! The evening event continues to be free for all, however we do ask that you register in advance so we can keep track of those attending.

All of us at Dankmeyer hope you will join us for this event. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Amy Smith at (410) 636-8114 ext 269 or email us at

We also encourage you to check out the programs available at University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UMROI).
