PROGRAM DETAILS


The number of individuals in the United States who have had a lower limb amputation is rising for many reasons. As baby boomers near retirement, this population faces many health risks, including lower extremity amputations as a result of or due to peripheral vascular disease and diabetes mellitus. There is also the unfortunate increase in traumatic amputations occurring in the field of combat with military personnel. With the rise in the number of these patients, physical therapists will see an increase in the number of patients referred with orders for "prosthetic" or gait training. In addition to the sheer increase in numbers of this patient population, there is also the overwhelming technological advancement in prosthetic materials and components which differ in function as much as they differ by name. Therefore, treating this particular patient population for optimum functional ability requires a unique body of knowledge.




Taught by Physical Therapist and Prosthetist, Benny Privratsky, this one-day program brings a comprehensive understanding of the current state of lower extremity prosthetics to physical therapists who are seeing this particular patient population. Accurate evaluation, effective treatment planning and successful outcomes will be enhanced from the information obtained from this course. Therapists will walk away from the seminar with valuable tools to help bridge the gap between the prosthetics and physical therapy fields for successful patient care.


 


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN



  • Maximize functional independence in your patients while minimizing impairments as a result of the amputation by:

  • Developing an understanding of the field of prosthetics

  • Identifying the primary components of construction of a lower extremity prosthesis

  • Exploring the basic concepts of both static and dynamic alignment of lower extremity prosthetics

  • Better assessing your particular patient?s prosthetic limb to enable optimal outcomes for functional use



  • Explore lower extremity prosthetics through basic terminology, suggested protocols and the specialized profession of prosthetics

  • Differentiate the different BK and AK prosthetic designs, components and suspensions

  • Gain an understanding of the proper BK and AK prosthetic fit, support and biomechanics for the purpose of optimum alignment and function

  • Recognize the different types of prosthetic components, their specific indications and benefits of use

  • Explore basic concepts of normal vs. pathological gait and their relation to the gait of a patient with lower extremity prosthesis

  • Compare the contrasting viewpoints and goals of the Prosthetist for dynamic alignment and gait with the viewpoints of a Physical Therapist


ABOUT THE SPEAKER


AUGUST B. "BENNY" PRIVRATSKY, PT, Prosthetist, is a 1991 graduate of the University of Oklahoma Physical Therapy program and a 2005 graduate of the University of California at Dominguez Hills Prosthetics certificate program. He has more than 15 years working as a physical therapist in primarily the outpatient orthopedic setting with special interests in acute outpatient orthopedics, prosthetics, gait training and treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus. He is currently completing a residency in prosthetics and is pursuing a career of private practice in prosthetics with physical therapy treatment for patients with prosthetics needs. Mr. Privratsky is one of a minority of professionals with degrees in both the physical therapy and prosthetic fields. His personality and realistic approach to professional care for patients, primarily those in this particular population, are both understandable and reproducible.
