Friends House, London
Socket comfort is a major consideration for amputees. Techniques and practice vary considerably across prosthetic rehabilitation clinics in the UK. This ISPO workshop aims to explore a range of techniques employed across both private and mainstream NHS clinics. Participants are invited to share and disseminate their own experiences of good practice in relation to measurement capture and socket design. The presentation of supporting evidence is strongly encouraged.
The workshop is being organised against a backdrop of variations and inconsistencies in practice. Participants are encouraged to consider a range of aspects including:
- Why do such marked variations exist in relation to measurement capture and socket design?
- What are the barriers to change?
- How can we introduce new technology and good quality evidence-based design across mainstream prosthetic services?
REGISTRATION IS OPEN TO ISPO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS and limited to 100 participants.
