    The targets of this course are imparting biomechanical knowledge, deriving of alignment guidelines and practical proceedings in fitting lower limb amputation levels from TT to HD.
    At first, short information about the history of prosthetic alignment and important results of various studies will be given. Then (a) present biomechanical aspects and (b) the practical procedure for prosthetic alignment that has been repeatedly proved by the speakers will be demonstrated.

    Biomechanics as well as the practical procedure are very different for the individual amputation levels. Both contents will be explained for each amputation level separately (1. Alignment of lower limb prostheses: Biomechanics and guidelines, 2. Alignment of lower limb prostheses: How to do in clinical practice).

    Statement of the objective / learning objectives

    Learn about current biomechanical knowledge for prosthetic alignment in TT, TF and HD amputees, learn objective biomechanically based alignment guidelines and how to apply that knowledge in everyday clinical practice.

    This session focuses on the topic Prosthetics: Lower Limb Transfemoral and is supported by Ottobock.
