Continuing Education Program

Nelson Prosthetic and Orthotic Laboratory has recently become involved in a new program that helps to provide continuing education training to physical therapists in the field of prosthetics and orthotics. Our practitioners travel to different rehabilitation facilities throughout the WNY area educating these therapists on different product usage, different innovations in technology and those things that they are not exposed to in their day-to-day hands on operations in regards to orthotics and prosthetics. This program helps to expose the therapists to the services we provide so they can better understand the orthoses or prostheses that we are providing our patients with. The education training also helps us to form stronger relationships between our practitioners and the physical therapists so they can work together as a team to better serve their patients in helping them to reach their therapeutic goals. Some of these courses we have provided include such titles as:

  1. Prosthetic Overview
  2. Transtibial Prosthetics
  3. Transfemoral Prosthetics
  4. Lower Extremity Orthotics

We have just finished our first year of continuing education courses and look forward to continued success as we enter into our second year.
