Instructional Course: Stance Control Orthotics

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Lower limb orthosis design has been advanced by the introduction of knee mechanisms that provide stance phase control and swing phase freedom, referred to as a stance control orthosis (SCO). The intent is to allow a more normal, energy efficient gait. This technology is relatively new and many practitioners have only limited experience. This instructional course will make it possible for more practitioners to gain the knowledge needed to introduce this technology into their clinical practice. Attendees will gain knowledge about the technical features of SCO designs along with an understanding of the biomechanical deficits that can be replaced. Clinical examples will be provided to document patient selection and treatment criteria. The effective use of various types of SCOs will be presented. The course will also provide a summary of current research on SCOs and areas that require future development efforts.
