The Amputee Walking School, a free program provided by SRT Prosthetics & Orthotics and Turnstone, has helped thousands of amputees worldwide achieve their own personal goals of mobility. Turnstone is proud to have the longest running consecutive program in the country, now in operation for more than a decade.
Who should attend?
For over 25 years, Paralympic Gold Medalists Dennis Oehler and Todd Schaffhauser have helped over 15,000 amputees world-wide with this 100% free program, helping them optimize the use of their prosthesis. Whether you have been an amputee for years, a brand new amputee, or even contemplating amputation, the Amputee Walking School is a fun, casual atmosphere filled with inspirational stories and strength-training exercises. Amputees are not required to pre-register for this event, and do not have to be a current patient of SRT.
What can I expect?
Throughout the event, Dennis and Todd will guide amputees through a series of fun exercises in a casual environment to help with increased flexibility and strength to achieve the best performance from their prosthesis. Attendees often transfer to Turnstone’s Health & Wellness Programs for additional training to achieve their fitness goals.
Physical and Occupational Therapists can get free CEUs
Dennis and Todd take a hands-on approach to training physical and occupational therapists at the Walking School, encouraging the therapists to work one-on-one with the amputees. The Amputee Walking School is also perfect for students, physicians, restorative nurses, wound care specialists, case managers/social workers, discharge planners, and diabetic counselors. CEU Credits are accredited through the INAPTA & IOTA.
