Description
Access to three dimensional and animated instructional materials would benefit the health care practitioner studying the biomechanical forces of prosthetics. An understanding of these forces and their relationship to the fit of the prosthesis, their contribution to effective gait patterns, and their role in improving functional outcomes for the amputation patient is critical. Though this project, animated, three-dimensional and inter-active instructional materials would be developed for study and application to the team of health care providers working with prosthetic patients, including physicians, prosthetists and physical therapists.
