Welcome to San Antonio and a Memorable Experience! GREAT THINGS HAVE HAPPENED since our last visit to San Antonio in 1995 and you’ll have a chance to see them all—the new hotels, famous Riverwalk additions and of course exciting restaurants and entertainment. No question about it, San Antonio is a city with special charms. But of course that’s not why you’re here. The most important reason has everything to do with your business, patient care, your profession, and the future of O&P. The AOPA National Assembly is the only meeting where you can find solid answers to the vexing challenges that keep you up at night. Your San Antonio experience will help you make the kind of decisions that will best assure your future and your ability to deliver quality patient care. Our supplier exhibitors will show all they have to offer to guide you to successful patient outcomes and business decisions. Most importantly, the partnership patient care facilities have with their suppliers takes on a very important meaning each National Assembly. Seeing the latest in innovative technology and product development is critical for your practice, but even more important is the opportunity to build on relationships with suppliers and peers. The camaraderie that develops at this meeting leads us all to make sure we do the very best for the people whose mobility, quality of life, and personal safety depends on our profession. Every year your dedicated colleagues who serve on the National Assembly Planning Committee including those under this year’s chair, Chris Nolan, work to make each Assembly better than the one before. They have added additional “Wow” moments to make your trip to the meeting even more valuable and rewarding. As an example, among this year’s many innovations are the expanded opportunities for networking and building alliances. The traditional golf outing has been transformed so more attendees can easily participate. This will be a simulated experience at Topgolf. The proceeds support AOPA’s Capitol Connection and OPAF, the O&P Activities Fund. This is a fun way to contribute to our legislative community affairs efforts. A special highlight will be the numerous presentations reporting on AOPA’s research agenda, especially Prosthetics 2020, a very important project aimed at getting you better reimbursements. Research plays an important role in what you can provide to patients and how you are reimbursed for your work. AOPA has been at the forefront of funding appropriate research. This year’s meeting will provide reports on the successful results of that research including systematic literature researches, comparative effectiveness studies, and cost effectiveness studies. It is all really GOOD STUFF! We have proof that O&P care provides outcomes and saves money. Tune in to these presentations. More than 35 CEs are yours for the taking and the star studded lineup of speakers will make it a quality experience as well as a professionally rewarding use of your time. Please join me for four very special networking opportunities—the Wednesday, exhibit hall 5:15 p.m. Welcome to San Antonio Reception, the Thursday evening 5:15 p.m. exhibit hall Happy Hour, followed by the 6:30 p.m. Wine Tasting and Auction, and on Friday, the 6:30 p.m. Topgolf Event. Hope to see you at all four. Sincerely,

Charles H. Dankmeyer, Jr., CPO President, AOPA

Attendees at the AOPA National Assembly should avoid discussing certain subjects when they are together at any formal or informal gathering. The following guidelines are to be adhered to at all times during the Assembly: • DO NOT discuss prices, fees or rates, or features that can impact prices such as discounts, costs, terms and conditions of sale, warranties, or profit margins. • DO NOT agree with competitors as to uniform terms of sale, warranties or contract provisions. • DO NOT exchange data concerning fees, prices, production, sales, bids, costs, customer credit, or other business practices. • DO NOT agree with competitors to divide up customers, markets or territories. • DO NOT agree with competitors not to deal with certain suppliers or others. • DO NOT try to prevent a supplier from selling to your competitor(s). • DO NOT discuss your customers with your competitors. • DO leave any meeting (formal or informal) where improper subjects are being discussed. Tell everyone why you are leaving.

Manufacturers’ Workshops—Tier A (The following workshops in Tier A run concurrently within this track)

MWA-1

Socket Selection Criteria and Alignment Considerations

Room 201 (Convention Center Concourse Level) Sponsor: ALPS Prosthetists have come to adopt liners with pins and locking devices as their mainstay suspension method for trans-tibial amputees. While this provided them with major improvements over previous suspension methods available, not all amputees have the proper tissue and limb configuration to be fitted with locking suspension. The stresses created at the distal end will cause skin and suspension problems in a good number of amputees. Additionally, the largest segment of the amputee population, more specifically geriatric and less functional individuals, often have difficulty in donning of a pin. MWA-2

Mechatronic Systems: Solutions for Optimal Patient Outcomes with X3, Genium, C-Leg® 4, Compact and Triton® Smart Ankle

Room 202 B (Convention Center Concourse Level) Sponsor: Ottobock This workshop will discuss the features and benefits of Ottobock microprocessor knees and the Triton Smart Ankle. These components are used to improve the functional outcomes of TF and TT users. This presentation will focus on differentiating our various knees and describing which functions are most appropriate for users’ activity levels and functional needs. A patient demonstration and programming on both Genium/X3 and Triton Smart Ankle will be performed. A discussion of current research regarding microprocessor knees will complete the session.

MWA-4

MWA-6

Material Bonding for Orthotics and Pedorthics

Room 204 A (Convention Center Concourse Level) Sponsor: nora Systems, Inc. & Renia USA, Inc. It is generally agreed that bonding is widely practiced and poorly understood. The materials used today are much different than those used in the 1960’s when many of the current adhesives were designed. Health & Safety at work have developed and with more young women entering the work place, education on the contents of adhesives is important. The goal of is to layout the way modern adhesives differ, their components and how they work, or fail. During the practical program we will demonstrate many of these different adhesives and look at why each is earning its place, in OP&P. MWA-7

Gomez Orthotic Spine System

Room 204 B (Convention Center Concourse Level) Sponsor: Friddle’s Orthopedic Appliances, Inc. This course will provide the practicing orthotist with an in-depth overview of the Gomez Orthotic Spine System approach to the comprehensive management of spinal pathologies, including idiopathic scoliosis, neuromuscular disorders as well as degenerative spine disorders. The emphasis will be on proper spine alignment and balance and the importance of a detailed clinical evaluation, combined with objective assessment of tri-planar spinal flexibility, to create a comprehensive biomechanical plan for successful treatment of spine deformities and instabilities. Each participant will learn the use of simple tools to measure and record clinical signs to be used in the orthosis design.

The Dual Application Track of Stance Control Orthoses: Managing Your Acute and Chronic Patient Populations

Room 101 B (Convention Center Street Level) Sponsor: Becker Orthopedic The formula for success in the application of a stance control orthosis is tied to a proper assessment of the patient. Chronic and acute patient categories present unique practitioner challenges in the use of the technology. Success has been directly linked to a physical trial with an immediate fit orthosis. In this approach, a practitioner can ascertain if any physical restraints exist from the late effects of a neuromuscular deficit in chronic patients. In acute cases, the practitioner can initial the task of gait retaining and determine if sufficient muscular strength exits for the patient to initiate over the ground weight bearing. In either category patients undergo a physical challenge through the use of the trial orthosis and if successful can transition to a custom device. The workshop will cover the unique physical limits of acute and chronic application and a practicum on the use of the PreStride immediate fit stance control orthosis. MWD-10 Advances in Upper Limb Prosthetics Room 102 A (Convention Center Street Level) Sponsor: Touch Bionics Attendees will learn about the latest innovations in upper limb prosthetic technologies.

Room 102 B (Convention Center Street Level) Sponsor: Orthomerica Orthomerica will be introducing its latest advancements in lower extremity orthotics by showcasing the OWLS and New Fuzion product lines. The Orthomerica Wound Limb Salvage (OWLS) Program is a culmination of ten plus years of clinical orthotic development – treating diabetic ulcers classified Wagner 1-4 with custom orthoses. These orthoses will complement the ongoing wound therapies & post-operative care being offered at Wound Care centers. The Fuzion line of lower extremity orthoses offer greater fit, function and freedom for challenging foot deformations compared to traditional AFOs. The circumferential wrap of the Fuzion firmly and comfortably holds the foot in a more structured biomechanical position instead of trying to seat the foot with two or three straps. The Fuzion’s design and materials ensure greater patient compliance for a variety of challenging clinical indications.

Lieutenant Colonel Donald Gajewski, MD

8:45 – 10:00 AM

Lieutenant Col. Donald Gajewski always swore he had the best job in the Military. As an orthopedic surgeon and former chief of the Center for the Intrepid at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Gajewski’s job was to oversee the care of soldiers as they returned from combat with the most severe wounds. The center, which opened in 2007, is one of three military facilities in the country for amputees, and it also rehabilitates soldiers with serious burns and injured limbs that were not amputated. More than 1,000 service members have been treated at the Center for the Intrepid, many of them for lost limbs. The pride in Gajewski’s work came from watching these soldiers confront the reality of their injuries with the same drive and determination that characterized their military service.

Predictors of Receiving a Prosthesis for Adults with Above-Knee Amputations: A Population Based Study (C6A/B) Kenton Kaufman, PhD, PE

THURSDAY SCHEDULE

A retrospective, population-based cohort study of 93 adults who had an above-knee amputation (AKA) between 1987 and 2013 was performed to identify pre-amputation characteristics that predicted the likelihood of receiving a prosthesis. Characteristics affecting prosthesis receipt were analyzed using logistic regression and a random forest algorithm for classification trees. The odds of receiving a prosthesis were almost 30 times higher in those able to walk independently prior to an amputation relative to those who could not walk independently. A 10-year increase in age was associated with a 54% decrease in the likelihood of being fit for a prosthesis (odds ratio=0.462, p-value =0.030). Time lapse between surgery and the prosthesis decision was associated with a rise in probability of receiving a prosthesis for the first three months in the random forest algorithm. 3:50 – 3:58 PM

Perception of Functional Change After a Microprocessor Knee Trial is Related to Improved Motor Performance (C6F) Charla Howard, Research Associate

Prediction of the Skeletal ML to Improve Accuracy of Ischial Containment Sockets (C6C) Accurate measurement of the transfemoral residuum and pelvis is critical for well-fitting and comfortable ischial containment sockets. Unfortunately, measuring the Skeletal ML dimension is invasive and unreliable. This research demonstrates that the Skeletal ML can be predicted using simple anthropometric measurements (e.g., sex, body mass) with an average error of 1/4”.

A novel study design has been developed to objectify force transmission principles in three types of transfemoral sockets (CAT-CAM, MAS, and subischial socket). First results suggest that the general force transmission does not differ significantly between ischium/ramus containment sockets (MAS and CATCAM) during standing and walking in different gait situations. However, with the subischial socket that does not contact the pelvis, significant differences can be identified compared to ischium/ramus containment sockets.

While a molded thermoplastic ankle foot orthosis (AFO) will control ankle motion through swing phase to prevent foot drop, it does not possess responsive attributes to assist in push-off to propel the body into the next gait cycle. In fact, the thermoplastics used in the fabrication of AFOs have response characteristics that decrease as flexion increases. Since the dynamic response characteristics of a brace built of carbon increases with flexion, the carbon ankle foot orthosis (CAFO) has demonstrated not only to prevent foot drop but also to store and return energy at push off.

She was fit with custom fit dynamic carbon composite AFO designs, including one without adjustment, one with increased rigidity without adjustment, and one with the same increased rigidity with an adjustment to customize the orthosis for the heel height of the shoe. Temporal-spatial and pelvic motion was collected utilizing a BTS G-Walk Portable Gait Analysis System placed at the L5 vertebral level.

New Material and Technique to Fabricate a Custom Bi-valve LSO or TLSO

Edna Hulley, BOCO

Vincent DeCataldo, BOCPO, NJ LPO

This research provides details regarding the orthosis and methodology of a patient’s progress towards increased knee extension ROM. The patient’s end goal is to stand and walk again after suffering an incomplete spinal cord injury from MVA.

There are occasions in O&P patient care when fabricating an LSO or TLSO for an immediate fit would benefit the patient and meet the needs of the referral source. As opposed to taking the time for in-house fabrication or waiting for the arrival of a device from a central fabricator, this program will present a material and technique to meet the stat prescription.

Effect of Open Calcaneus Carbon Composite AFO on Gait of an Individual with Spinal Cord Injury Vincent DeCataldo, BOCPO, NJ LPO

A 27-year-old female who sustained a spinal cord injury tested the effects on gait wearing a solid plastic rigid AFO versus a rigid dynamic carbon composite (RDCC) AFO with an open calcaneus. The RDCC AFO provided the maximum function for this patient by increasing speed and cadence while decreasing pelvic motion. The RDCC AFO provided support for weakened musculature, specifically addressed excess plantar flexion during initial contact, stabilized the joint for effective push-off during late stance, and prevented toe-drag during swing.

An Innovative Prosthetic Foot Leads to Increased Ankle Power in Transtibial Amputees, Preliminary Results (C8A)

A virtual reality rehabilitation program was successfully used to improve lateral stability in an individual with unilateral transfemoral amputation. The program consisted of increasing magnitudes of continuous changes to walking speed and the pitch-and-roll of the treadmill platform. Find out if the stability improvements were consistent and retained during normal walking and perturbed walking.

Daniel Heitzmann, Dipl. Ing. (FH)

An innovative prosthetic foot was analyzed by means of conventional 3D gait analysis. Results were compared to a conventional energy storing and returning foot. We determined an increase in peak ankle power with the innovative foot with an associated reduction of sound side vertical GRF. 9:15 – 9:28 AM

Prosthetic Symposium: Management of the Partial Hand Amputee (C11) Room 103 A ( Convention Center Street Level) Matt Mikosz, CP Elaine Uellendahl, CP Jack Uellendahl, CPO Partial hand amputations have many possible presentations due to the vast number of possible hand configurations that result from traumatic injury. Limited joint range of motion, hypersensitivity, scarring, and a lack of strength in the remaining portions of the hand may be complicating factors. This course will review the current prosthetic options and indications for use of the following: opposition prostheses, which are usually strong and robust and well suited for manual tasks, bodypowered devices driven by proximal joints appropriate for fitting partial fingers through carpal/metacarpal levels, and powered fingers. Powered fingers provide many of the desirable features of multifunctional hands including conformable grasp with the ability to rotate the powered thumb from an opposed to non-opposed position. Prosthesis design and construction techniques will conclude the presentation.

Recent advances in prosthetic/orthotic technology and therapeutic interventions have great potential to improve the function for individuals who have experienced lower extremity trauma. These advances have wide ranging implications for prosthetists/orthotists, physical therapists and physicians. The following topics will be addressed in the context of completed and ongoing research from the Center for the Intrepid at San Antonio Military Medical Center including the experience of caring for injured service members: • Rapid translation of research findings from the Military Performance Laboratory into the clinical care of patients. • Benefits and limitations of the latest prosthetic devices, and how device choice can impact an individual’s ability to perform specific activities. • Compare and contrast how conventional carbon fiber feet, powered prosthetic devices and dynamic carbon fiber ankle foot orthoses differ in the way they restore limb function. • Costs and benefits of implementing objective outcome assessments as part of clinical care. • Importance of device specific physical therapy training on resulting outcomes for advanced orthotics like the Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis.

Projecting the Adequacy of Workforce Supply to Meet Patient Demand-Analysis of the Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) Profession

The blood flow in five trans-tibial residual limbs was assessed by isotope washout under different exercise conditions, with and without an active vacuum. The results indicated this to be a valid method for perfusion assessment under active prosthesis and suspension system use. Assisted vacuum may improve blood flow in dysvascular subjects.

Room 103 B (Convention Center River Street Level) Audrey El-Gamil with Dobson | DaVanzo The National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE) commissioned Dobson DaVanzo & Associates, LLC (Dobson | DaVanzo) to estimate and project the future demand for and supply of orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) professionals over the next ten years (2016-2025). Workforce projections allow industries to better align their workforce with the future demand for their services. 8:00 – 9:00 AM

Prosthetic Free Papers: Advancing Prosthetic Care (C17)

9:36 – 9:46 AM

Brian Baum, PhD

Altered joint kinetics (forces, moments, and powers) during running may be required to accommodate for physical deficiencies caused by lower extremity amputation and could place runners at increased risk of injury. Investigating the joint moments of runners using running-specific prostheses across a range of running velocities can provide insight into these adaptations and potential injury risks. We will investigate lower extremity stance phase sagittal joint moments in individuals with unilateral transtibial amputations using running-specific prostheses at different velocities.

Room 103 A (Convention Center Street Level) Treatment options, improved outcomes, patient comfort and more will be discussed during this free paper session. (The following presentations run consecutively within this program.) 9:00 – 9:10 AM

The SmartTemp Liner Significantly Reduces Skin Temperature and Perspiration of the Residual Limb (C17A) Matthew Wernke, PhD

Heat and perspiration are common issues among amputee prosthetic users. Recently the SmartTemp liner became commercially available to address these issues. Review the results collected during a double blind randomized clinical trial (N=16 transtibial amputees) evaluating the performance of the SmartTemp liner to a placebo.

Elevated Vacuum Socket Suspension Improves Balance and Gait (C17C)

Andreas Kannenberg, MD, PhD This study was able to demonstrate that dysvascular transtibial amputees can benefit from using elevated vacuum suspension to improve their risk of falling, balance, and walking capacity. Subjects with MFCL-3 mobility improved their safety, balance, and walking performance in almost all outcome measures assessed. The smaller subgroup with MFCL-2 mobility showed similar trends, but differences attained statistical significance in only two outcome measures.

General Session: The Brave New World of 3-D Printed Devices: Challenges and Opportunities (C16)

FULL DAY

Approved Clinical Mentor Course (ACM) Part II

Room 203 A (Convention Center Concourse Level) 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Sponsor: National Commission on O&P Education (NCOPE) The primary goal is to provide clinicians with practical clinical education skills in conjunction with real-world applications. Secondarily, this program hopes to develop a cultural change in how mentoring students/residents is viewed in the O&P profession. The ACM program will be geared towards O&P practitioners interested in supervising and teaching O&P residents as well as students/ residents in the clinical setting. Successful completion of this training session and online assessment will not only meet the minimum requirements to be a mentor / residency director per the NCOPE residency standards, but also provide the practitioner with additional training to enhance their skills needed to educate novice practitioners. The ACM credential will not be a requirement to supervise a student or resident at the time of its initial delivery, but will considered additional training above and beyond the current NCOPE course offerings required to host an accredited residency program.
