PRTE 1070 - Anatomy of Trans-Femoral Amputations

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture 2 Lab 2
Course Description: This course focuses on duplicating procedures for making a Patellar tendon-bearing (PTB) prosthesis. Students shape and laminate the prosthesis, as well as finish and assemble the PTB prosthesis for delivery to a patient. This course also covers anatomy of trans-femoral, knee and hip disarticulation amputations, the prosthetic measurement chart and design and principles for these amputation levels.
