Light and esthetical prosthetic concept for forefoot amputation level with remaining ROM in the ankle.
This course provides knowledge and hands-on skill for the application of a forefoot prosthesis according to “Bellmann”
Foot prosthetics is a small but very complex field of orthopedic technology. This prosthetic design and concept developed by Mr. Bellmann is both functionally ingenious and intriguingly logical.
In this seminar, we teach the implementation of all practice-relevant aspects of the Bellmann partial foot prosthesis method.
The aim of the course is not only to provide relevant knowledge on that amputation level and related biomechanical aspects, it is also to acquaint the participant with a contemporary production of ankle-free forefoot prostheses, where effort and effectiveness are in an acceptable ratio.
During the onsite hands-on clinical seminar, following video, lecture and live demonstration, all clinical application, from evaluation and negative plaster casting to the rectification of the positive, fabrication, finishing and fitting of the prosthesis, is then performed by all participants with actual partial-foot amputees.
