New Online Course – Toe Walking Intensive

February 02, 2021

Our new online course—Toe Walking Intensive—is now available at the Cascade Dafo Institute.

In this free online course, we’ll explore the different causes of toe walking and learn about assessment and brace planning for patients who present with excess plantarflexion. Through video case studies and practice scenarios, you’ll learn:

  • What type of patients typically fit into this patient group.
  • How to assess range and gait for patients with excess plantarflexion, including assessing R1 and R2.
  • How to use the DAFO Guide and your knowledge of the patient to select the most appropriate brace design.
  • How to cast, optimize and order, and fit and adjust braces for patients with excess plantarflexion.

This course is pending CE credit approval by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, & Pedorthics. Once credit approval is granted, participants who have completed the course will receive retroactive credit.
