|(3 cr.) This course provides in-depth background of
assessment and treatment of individuals with
spinal cord injury, and individuals requiring a
lower extremity orthotic or prosthetic device.
Abnormal gait is presented as a foundation to
understanding the function of orthotic or
prosthetic devices. Students build on knowledge
of the biomechanical concepts of normal gait to
understand ambulation using prosthetic or
orthotic devices. Assessment and treatment
procedures are emphasized for individuals with
peripheral vascular disease resulting in
amputation, musculoskeletal deficiencies
requiring orthotic management, or sensory-motor
losses resulting from SCI.
