Out on a Limb! Adaptive Sports Recommendations for Athletes With a Prosthesis: NDVWSC

Veterans, clinicians, adaptive instructors and all interested are invited to join this
discussion about “what you need to know” when it comes to using a prosthetic limb in
adaptive sports. Hear from the experts about how everyday prosthetic limbs can be adjusted
for sports participation, when a specialized sports prosthesis is needed, and the technology
options available for different sports. Prosthetists from the WSC Seating & Prosthetics team
will share guidance for athlete evaluation, prosthetic limb considerations, coordination with all
stakeholders, and recommendations for athlete education, training, resources, and follow up.
