    Where: Wright Auditorium, Seattle Children’s Hospital, 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105

    Seattle Children’s Rehabilitation Department is proud to sponsor this conference presented by Elaine Owens, MBE, MSc, SRP, MCSP. The course is intended primarily for pediatric physiotherapists, orthotists and other professionals working in the field of pediatric gait rehabilitation. It is also highly relevant to physiotherapists, orthotists and others working in the fields of adult neurology and adult learning disability.

    The course explores a fresh approach to the observation and analysis of normal walking and standing, and the classification and management of gait disorders. The biomechanics of normal walking and standing and the pathological gaits of disabling conditions will be extensively reviewed, with particular reference to orthotic management. Pre-gait analysis and orthotic management assessment will be demonstrated. The emphasis of patient cases will focus on cerebral palsy, myelomeningocoele and other neurological conditions.

    Participants will gain knowledge of the aims of orthotic management and how to achieve them through the biomechanics of ankle–foot orthoses, the influence of footwear, varieties of AFO footwear combination design, tuning AFO footwear combinations to optimize gait and extensive video examples. In addition, live patient demonstrations will help participants refine their clinical decision-making skills involved in gait analysis and orthotic design.
