SPS Microprocessor Knees: A Review
MPKs: A Review is a 1-hour course utilizing a Comparison Chart of Specification and Attributes of some of today’s microprocessor knees to build an open round table discussion.
Xtremity TT Socket System Overview
The Xtremity TT Socket System is a thermoformable, transtibial, definitive socket that is easier, faster, and safer to custom fabricate than a traditional carbon fiber laminated socket. The socket is made of a proprietary, carbon-infused polymer that is heat adjustable for the life of the prosthesis. This presentation will introduce you to this novel technology and the years of research conducted by the Xtremity team.
SPS Upper Extremity Prosthetics for the Average Clinician
This 2-hour course is designed to give clinicians an understanding of the many options and solutions for fitting patients with the absence of whole or part of their upper extremity. Evaluation, testing, and training techniques of today’s highly functioning Myoelectric devices and available standard conventional devices will be covered. Utilize industry standards, new technologies, and/or Myo tester and outcome measures to optimize Myoelectric patient’s outcomes.
