In these photos students are learning how to properly instruct a patient in using various assistive devices including walkers, canes and crutches. Students were encouraged to problem solve correct usage of the device and then discuss proper positioning of the therapist, patient, and device along with proper gait pattern with device and different diagnoses with classmates and instructors.
The Saint Louis University Program in Physical Therapy in the Doisy College of Health Sciences is a graduate program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education. In the Jesuit traditions of the pursuit of truth, development of the whole person, and commitment to service and justice, our community – faculty, staff, and students – prepares doctors of physical therapy who provide reflective, person-centered care that is interprofessional and evidenced-based.
