New Video Available to Help Amputees Understand How to Use and Care for their New Prosthesis

The August 2010 issue of the O&P Almanac features an article about a new video titled Using a Below Knee Prosthesis to help below-knee amputees better understand how to properly use their new prosthesis. Tom Norton, CPO, FAAOP developed the video from his 17 years of experience as a prosthetist. Although there’s no substitute for physician-patient interaction, providing a video that can be reviewed in the home setting was Norton’s goal with this new video.

The video features useful information for new amputees about how to use, care for and ensure a proper fit with most common types of below knee prostheses. For more information, visit
