Hi everyone!

The Sophomore Cohort is officially onto our last class of the semester, which is Orthotic Management of the Lower Limb 1. We just finished Prosthetic Management of the Lower Limb 1 and we all really enjoyed it! We delivered our second prosthesis last week which was a Total Surface Bearing socket and everyone had a great fit. It was a great experience getting to work with a different patient model this time around and we were able to apply the skills we learned from our first sockets to the new ones which taught us so much. On our last day of PML1, we had some guest speakers from Blatchford who gave us information on different types of Hydraulic feet, which we were able to test out with our patient models to see how it affected their gait. Thank you to Blatchford and our patient models for making that day possible! 

This week was also the first week that Lauren hosted her adaptive dance class! She did a great job putting this together and we can’t wait to see how the class grows in the weeks to come! That’s all for this week, so check back soon to see how our last class of the semester is going! 

Thanks for reading,
