Problem Solving with Stance Control KAFOs: Why they Succeed and Fail
James H. Campbell, PhD, CO, FAAOP
The addition of Stance Control technology was a huge advancement to the field of orthotics. But, like most higher tech designs and systems it requires education and training on proper patient evaluation, selection, component options, fitting and alignment, training, and trouble shooting in order to achieve the maximum outcomes. This session will focus on those areas.
