This event is hosted by Royal Orthotics of Concord, NC – “Where family matters.”
REGISTRATION CLOSES ON MAY 10th
This two-hour program details the scientific and clinical evidence which supports the well-known pediatric management principle: “proximal stability precedes distal mobility.”
Course instructor Deborah Stack, PT, DPT, PCS describes the ideal sequence of neuromotor acquisition and resting postures, and documents the relationship of faulty trunk control to limb muscle contracture in children with diplegic CP. She discusses sensory, biomechanical, kinesiological, and neuromotor aspects of both normal and compromised development of trunk alignment and control. She describes the influence of postural alignment and control on movement acquisition and skills, and offers suggestions for science-based orthotic intervention.
Finally, Ms. Stack introduces the new code-verified TherAlign DragonFly™ TLSO System as an example of a modality that can effectively address postural management issues.
TheraTogs inventor and co-founder Beverly (Billi) Cusick will be stepping back up to the webcam next Wednesday for her first-ever TheraTogs “Ask Me Anything” session dedicated to answering questions from caregivers. The session is open free of charge to all caregivers who are curious, interested, or recommended to use TheraTogs – and to current and past TheraTogs users, as well.
The mission: to help caregivers understand – and effectively use – TheraTogs to support their childrens’ specific therapy goals.
The 45-minute session is offered on Wednesday, May 13, 10:00 to 10:45 AM Mountain (12:00 noon Eastern, 9:00 Pacific). Pre-registration (www.theratogs.com/ama-caregiver) is required.
“To help streamline the proceedings, we encourage caregivers to either submit their questions during signup, or email them before the event,” noted Lee Taylor, TheraTogs CEO. “This will help Billi prepare efficient responses to the most common questions, so we can cover the widest range of topics that time permits.”
Questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event. TheraTogs will record and offer playback of this initial session, and will schedule additional events as demand requires.
(Note: the Q&A session will be conducted in English.)
