Assistive Aid Devices for Ambulation training course

Many conditions may cause an impaired gait, which can impact the effectiveness of a patient’s ambulation, efficiency, and safety.  Physical therapy practitioners leverage their knowledge to administer progressive gait training interventions to help these patients recover mobility.  They also recommend ambulation aids that help individuals restore functional ambulation.  This course discusses the basic components of the normal gait cycle, several pre-ambulation considerations, the selection of ambulation assistive devices, and the effective techniques for safe gait training.
