Occupational therapy is a critical component of successful upper limb prosthetic rehabilitation. That’s why Advanced Arm Dynamics wants to be a resource for occupational therapists that work with upper limb amputees and prosthetic users. It is part of our mission to improve rehabilitation and lifestyle outcomes for all people who have lost an upper limb or were born with a limb difference.
Some of the information you can expect at an Advanced Arm Dynamics CEU Course includes:
- Overview of limb loss, upper limb prosthetics and prosthetic rehabilitation
- Opportunity to see and hold six types of prostheses: cosmetic/passive, body-powered, myoelectric, hybrid, activity-specific, partial hands and fingers
- Opportunity to earn .1 occupational therapy CEU, network with other professionals, and learn from the national experts in upper limb prosthetic rehab
The annual requirement for CEUs/PDUs is mandated by each state’s Board of Licensure for Occupational Therapy and varies from state to state. Check with your state’s board or visit http://www.aota.org/ to access a database of the requirements for all 50 states.
