Description

This course provides an overview of childhood gait, walking pre-requisites and tri-planar biomechanical efficiency. Dynamic orthoses with case studies are reviewed as therapeutic options.

 

Objectives

Gait analysis:

  • Understand and critique how gait is analyzed across pediatric practice settings

Pre-Walking:

  • Explain the role of pre-walking development skills on bone and soft tissue modeling.

Gait and Development:

  • Examine typical and atypical skeletal development and alignment along the lower extremity.

Tri-Planar Biomechanics:

  • Compare calcaneal mobility in a thermoplastic closed heel AFO versus an open heeled carbon composite AFO.

Orthotic Intervention:

  • Compare and contrast different models and materials of AFOs and their impacts on muscle function, foot mobility, and resulting functional or dysfunctional outcomes.
