Presentations from a Prosthetics and Orthotics course done by DPT students for other students.

Summer coursework has tasked us with creating presentations that dive into a multitude of diagnoses. Our assignment required knowledge of the disease itself, the clinical ramifications, the role of orthotics in treatment, a case study, the implications of the disease, and treatment approaches. There are myriad of different diagnoses that can be treated with the use of prosthetics and orthotics. The course covered a wide variety of topics, with the presentations linked representing a small portion of those. Some of the presentations focus on using tools for specific populations and other pertinent information to that topic.
