Description:
It is crucial to understand the evidence available to determine which characteristics prevent walking candidacy and prosthetic fitting criteria. There are many characteristics such as age, level, etiology, cognitive ability and pre-amputation characteristics which have been identified, and are backed by evidence to form population conclusions. This presentation will help provide the US and international prosthetic professional an understanding of evidence support regarding provision of prosthetic care, for all viable amputee candidates. The purpose of this symposium is to educate the clinician regarding existing high quality evidence to support prosthetic candidacy. View Course Preview....
