Webinar: Multi-Grasp Terminal Device Specific Training – Session V
Date and Time
This course is the fifth session in the series on multi-grasp terminal devices, and will feature a single patient use scenario.
There are a variety of hands, hooks, and fingers designed to help people with upper limb loss or limb difference complete everyday tasks. From eating to driving a car, there are different shapes, functionalities, and interfaces designed to help patients reach their goals.
Prosthetic hands and hooks can be complex, require power, or be made simply to enable a particular function. From high tech to low tech, they are all designed to provide benefits based on different functional needs and a patient’s individual style. This series is meant to provide you with a case by case look at solutions based on functional needs and helping patients get back to daily activity levels.
Upon completion of this program, participant will be able to:
- Review pre-prosthetic therapy and prosthetic training concepts
- Demonstrate multi-grasp terminal devices as they relate to patient activities of daily living, including important points to consider
- Understand why communication between therapist, prosthetist and patient is critical in providing the patient with the most functional prosthesis
