First Stride and First Things First Training and Clinic
A First Stride and First Things First Training and Clinic was held July 30 at the Brian Center of Durham, North Carolina. The event was hosted by LimBionics of Durham. A morning clinic for therapists and adaptive recreation professionals covered outcome measures, K-levels, and prosthetic feet and knees and their capabilities. Attendees at the morning session also had the opportunity to earn continuing education credits for the falls and recovery section that was held. More than 35 people attended the afternoon clinic that was held for people with lower-limb loss and therapists, during which they were taught exercises to build core strength and improve their conditioning and a section on how to fall and recover from a fall.
