This course introduces the clinical aspects of prosthetics related to the assessment of people with amputations, implementation of an intervention strategy in transtibial and transfemoral scenarios, and evaluating the evidence related to common aspects of care. Students learn about the design of socket interfaces, prosthetic foot and knee types, and learn to evaluate the fit and function of a prosthesis on an individual. The projects in the semester introduce students to working directly with individuals with amputations. Students continue to enhance psychomotor skills working on these projects.
