OPCA 1080 - Trans-Femoral Fabrications

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture None Lab None
Course Description: This course covers anatomy of trans-femoral amputations and trans-femoral prosthetic measurement forms. This course prepares students for shaping and finish lamination procedures of trans-femoral prostheses and assembly of trans-femoral prostheses.
