High-Activity and High-Performance Sports Prosthetics

Thursday, November 8, 2018
Noon–1 p.m. ET

Learn effective strategies you can use when working with your active amputee patients from a world-renowned expert in the area of high-activity and high-performance prosthetics.

Francois Van Der Watt is the owner of Van Der Watt Prosthetics & Orthotics in Greenwood, Arkansas. He has been the prosthetist for the US Paralympic Track & Field team since 2011 and accompanies the team to World Championships and the Paralympics Games.

Francois will break down the biomechanics of running, amputee biomotor capabilities, and restoring or developing running capabilities for amputee patients. He’ll discuss prosthetic componentry, socket design, suspension, alignment, and pylon setup. After his presentation, we’ll open the virtual floor for your questions.

This free live-stream opportunity is available to Academy members exclusively. Limited to the first 100 registrants.
