Virtual Symposium

Mobility in elderly & low active users - do they benefit from mechatronic knee prosthesis?

Virtual Symposium & Evidence Deep Dive for Healthcare Professionals I Language: English

7 September 2021 I 16:00 – 17:30 CET

Elderly and low active people with a transfemoral amputation or knee disarticulation require extensive rehabilitation and long term care which impacts heavily health care resources. Mobility and safety is key regaining independence; however, the impact of multiple comorbidities in this cohort can make this a particularly challenging task. Informed prosthetic choices are crucial in the early rehabilitation phase.

In this afternoon symposium we will devote ourselves to this steadily growing patient cohort and their needs.

Join us to enjoy the evidence deep dive presented by clinical and health economic experts.
