Aim of the course

Learning Outcomes:

The aim of the course is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and general competencies so that after the completion of the course the students:

  • understand the position and integration of orthotics - prosthetics as a field in the system of medical rehabilitation
  • demonstrate orientation in the provision of comprehensive prosthetic care
  • demonstrate a deeper orientation in preventive, supportive, corrective and rehabilitation steps with regard to common problems associated with prosthetics and prosthetics
  • demonstrate deeper knowledge in the indication of orthoses and prostheses
  • demonstrate a deeper knowledge of the influence of orthoses and prostheses on the statics and dynamics of the body, as well as on the overall movement of the patient
