Touch Bionics

More information on the class that Charlotte attended last month

The course name is i-limb digits by Touch Bionics Certification Program for Prosthetists and Therapists. It was a 3-day course in Hilliard Ohio.  Day 1 (clinical time with patient) CP and OT evaluation, myotesting, initial diagnostic liner fitting, plaster modifications, activation of device on silicone, and biosim software hands-on with OT training. Day 2 (fabrication and clinical time with patient): i-limb digits component selection, silicone fabrication techniques,  fitting of the second diagnostic socket, progression of OT training, and biosim training.  Day 3 (classroom learning): over-view of i-limb ultra and digits, patient selection and evaluation process, impression techniques, evaluation and patient expectations, billing and coding, myotesting techniques with Virtu-limb, i-limb digits ordering/assembly options, functional training approach, and biosim software training.

She has been so excited to be able to use this knowledge already. While going to school Charlotte got interested in learning more about prosthetics but didn't feel that the opportunities were there. She is grateful that she has found a clinic that helps her gain this knowledge.

A video explaining the benefits of advanced prosthetic hands...enjoy!!
