Improved Clinical Outcomes with Consistent Successful Socket Fit via Full Weight-bearing Hydrostatic Cast

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 | 10 a.m. CDT | 60 minutes | 1.5 CEUs

Presenter: Matt Doering

During this webinar, participants will learn the full weight-bearing casting technique, a new approach to casting an amputee with a proper fit efficiently and consistently. When implemented, this technique significantly reduces or eliminates the need for multiple check sockets, enhancing both clinical efficiency for the practitioner and faster functional progression for the patient. Participants will learn, with this approach, all professionals in their clinical organizations can consistently achieve an accurate socket fit.

Learning Objectives:

  • The physical principles to consider when implementing a casting method that accurately captures the residual limb under full weight bearing conditions.  

  • The correct methodology to apply the full weight bearing casting technique.
