The Amputee Walking School of June 2017 was a great success! Co-hosted by Dankmeyer, Inc. and the staff from University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UMROI), this summer session was held at Dankmeyer's Linthicum office on June 21. Todd Schaffhauser and Dennis Oehler joined Dankmeyer's Mark Hopkins PT, CPO, MBA and Meg Sions PT, PHD, DPT from the University of Delaware to teach a combination of classes for professionals in the daytime. Then, an evening of informal learning and exercises for those with lower limb loss followed. There were over 100 participants in the day long event. First timers were greeted warmly, while old friends shared stories and laughter while working on new skills and polishing up some old ones. If you were not able to attend this time, we hope to see you at the next event in November. We have a slideshow of the June event here, and we hope you enjoy it!
