PTR 632 - Integumentary System, Prosthetics, Orthotics


Students will gain knowledge in the integumentary system, as well as knowledge in both prosthetics and orthotics, which will be applied to a variety of patient populations across the lifespan. This course encompasses evaluation and intervention of the integumentary system including burns, pressure injury, arterial and venous ulcers, infections, and amputations. Specific interventions include, but are not limited to, universal precautions, prevention, wound healing, diseasese of the skin, and prosthetics/orthotics. Principles of normal biomechanics, pathomechanics, physiology and pathophysiology are used for evaluation and intervention of the patient with vascular, neuromuscular, and/or musculoskeletal compromises. Biomechanical and biological factors during prosthetic and orthotic prescription will be emphasized during examination, evaluation, and training to achieve desired patient/client functional outcomes. Prerequisite: Successful completion of all prior required PT courses. Corequisite: PTR*632L.
