WELCOME

President’s Message 2019

I

t is my pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the Board, Assembly Planning Committee, and staff to sunny San Diego for the 2019 National Assembly. We know running an O&P business isn’t easy, but the Assembly can help. It is your one-stop shop, providing you the best in clinical, business, and technical education and insights as well as the latest technologies and services brought to you by our over 150 exhibitor partners. This year, in addition to what you’ve come to love and expect, we have some exciting new opportunities. Starting with kicking it off with our general session on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. when you’ll hear from Capt. Lanny Boswell, USN (Ret), PhD, PT, OCS who was the Commanding Officer for the Military Hospital Ship USNS Comfort’s medical treatment facility, former head of the Navy Health Research Center Warfighter Performance Lab at Naval Base Point Loma, CA, and chair of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs. Then, let us officially welcome you by attending the Welcome Reception in the Exhibit Hall. Once again, the Assembly is full of the finest education, best practices, and latest regulatory and legislative developments that impact our profession as well as strategies to take your business and career to the next level. Learn about policies that will protect your business and create a positive work environment. Hear the latest on clinical care for those living with limb loss and limb impairment. Explore state of the art technologies and learn how to incorporate them into your practice. Be sure to enjoy attendee favorites, the Thranhardt Lecture series recognizing clinical breakthroughs and the Hamontree Lecture Series recognizing the best business practices. Network with the most influential O&P professionals during one of the many receptions and lunch breaks. Or better, yet have some fun with them, go to the Padres game or the Montgomery Gentry benefit concert. To help us close the Assembly on Saturday you’ll hear from nine-time gold medalist, Jeremy Campbell. He had his right leg amputated at the age of one, but treats obstacles as opportunities, courageously tackling all life’s challenges. Then, invite your referral sources, rehabilitation team members, patients, friends, and family to the Exhibit Hall to enjoy a free pass to the Assembly to explore the world of O&P. While you are here, I hope you find time to enjoy San Diego’s legendary weather, beautiful beaches, and friendly, laid-back vibe. Thank you for coming; together we will drive the waves of change. Sincerely,

Jim Weber, MBA President, AOPA

Think she’s worrying about wearing a Scoliosis brace at school? Dream On. The Providence Nocturnal Scoliosis® Orthosis is worn while the patient sleeps, which maximizes compliance. It lets kids... be kids.

Out of Brace (Standing)

In Brace (Supine)

A past study has shown that the Providence brace, a spinal orthosis worn only at night, is just as effective in the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis as full-time braces. That's important for two reasons; the human growth hormone (HGH) in children has been shown to peak at night, and compliance increases when spinal braces don't interfere with a child’s daytime activities. Spinal Technology is proud to be the exclusive manufacturer of the Providence Nocturnal Scoliosis® System. Send your orders to: orders@spinaltech.com Call us for more information: 800 253 7868

The 2019 Assembly provides a wide variety of networking opportunities ranging from a fun night at the ballpark to hands-on education to a benefit concert.

TUESDAY | SEPTEMBER 24, 2019 Pre-show Hands-on Workshop: Muscle Tone and Hypertonus— Assessment & Relevance to Orthotic Management 10:00 AM – 4:15 PM Room 26 AB (Convention Center, Upper Level) Clinical practitioners commonly use the term “muscle tone” to describe a different condition and use various methods to attempt to quantify it. We will clarify the currently accepted definition of human resting lower limb muscle tone in terms of the length-tension relationship with particular attention to the hamstrings and ankle plantar flexors. We will also relate movement strategies to the development of typical ankle function and equinus deformity and review clinical assessment procedures for hamstrings length and ankle dorsiflexion (DF) range of motion (ROM) in detail. We will introduce the DF end range at R1A in the hypertonic ankle and explains its relevance in standing and walking. Finally, we will discuss implications for setting the ankle angle in an AFO and for detecting and reporting orthotic management outcomes. During the lab portion of the program we will measure hamstring muscle length and passive ankle dorsiflexion range of motion with knee extended, detecting the typical end ranges at R1 and R2, and R1A when it is evident. *Limited space is available. Tickets for this optional pre-show workshop are $75 per person and available at the registration desk. A light lunch will be provided.

A Systematic Literature and Clinical Review of Transhumeral Interface Alternatives Gerald Stark, PhD, MSEM, CPO/L, FAAOP(D) The transhumeral interface presents a number of unique prosthetic challenges that are compounded by the individual functional and comfort needs of the patient and the lack of familiarity by the average prosthetist. Results of a systematic literature review indicate that a greater investigation of transhumeral interface designs is necessary. Much of the current clinical alternatives come from qualitative descriptions in popular literature. The clinical methods review took into account a number of factors that are indicative of success including triaxial stability, volume accommodation, coupling, limb length, and unique residual limb shape.

Algorithm for Upper Limb Prosthetic Continuum of Care (Identifying the Elephant in the Room) Karl Lindborg, CPO/LP Understanding the continuum of care model for the upper limb loss population and how it differs from lower limb prosthetics is a vital component for successfully managing the upper limb prosthetic patient. Entertaining a proposal for an “upper limb loss care memorandum of understanding� outlining care timelines, goal setting, occupational therapy involvement, advance training, mandatory scheduled follow-up may be helpful in alleviating prosthetic abandonment issues of the upper limb loss community.

The Concept of Medical Necessity: How to Read and Play the Game (B6-A)

Andreas Kannenberg, MD (GER), PhD The original idea of medical necessity was to use the limited healthcare resources to provide many patients with the care they really need rather than few patients with luxurious care that goes way beyond what they need. Today, however, it has often morphed into a cost containment tool. Therefore, understanding the concept and components of medical necessity and being able to meet their requirements, push the right buttons and check the right boxes is an absolute key to keeping the ability to provide adequate patient care and run a successful business.

Symposium: Getting a Grip On Multi-Articulating Hands (C12)

Room 25 AB (Convention Center, Upper Level) Kerstin Baun, OTR/L, MPH Mac Lang, CPO, FAAOP Karl Lindborg, CPO, LP Additional speakers to be announced Over 10 years ago, terminal devices for electric prosthetics were introduced to the market that featured more than one motor to power grip and the potential to change the way they grasp. These multi-articulating hands brought with them a host of new possibilities for users but also new challenges. As more multi-articulating hands are brought to market additional features are becoming available and the potential uses for these devices increase. This symposium will explore the different devices that are currently available and the features that differentiate them. Other topics that will be discussed are authorization and reimbursement challenges, fitting and training considerations, and what to potentially expect from future hands

Symposium: Management of Pediatric Cerebral Palsy (C13)

Room 24 BC (Convention Center, Upper Level) Spencer Doty, CPO, MBA Rachel Mednick Thompson, MD Jill Yastishak, CPNP Natalie Wilson, MSOP, CPO Cerebral palsy (CP) is the leading cause of physical disability in children, affecting nearly three in every 1000 live births. CP is a descriptive term for a group of disorders affecting motor function as a result of non-progressive disturbances that occur in the developing brain. The specific motor dysfunction present in each affected individual may include changes in tone, decreased balance, poor motor control, and difficulty with motor planning. These motor disturbances result in decreased ambulatory ability in many children. The goal of orthopaedic care in this population is to promote and maintain independence and functionality through optimizing assistive devices, therapy, and bracing. Surgical intervention is used when necessary and is considered in ambulatory children when gait disturbances result in decreased efficiency, increased tripping, and/ or pain despite assistive device and bracing optimization. This presentation will also include discussion on neurotoxins and their effect and use on this population. Case studies of bracing outcomes will be shown, both before and after surgical intervention. We will discuss the role of orthopaedic surgeons and review common surgical practices in this patient population so that you may gain insight into your patients’ orthopaedic management and work more closely with your patients’ orthopaedic providers.

Pedorthic Education: Evaluation and Treatment of the Diabetic Foot (C14)

Diabetic Foot in Remission (C14-A)

David Armstrong, DPM, MD, PhD Because neuroischemic complications are associated with a high rate of recurrence, we propose a slight shift in the mechanism by which we counsel and communicate risk daily with our patients. If the epidemiology of this problem is comparable with that of cancer, and recurrences are common, then perhaps language commensurate with such risks should follow. After initial healing of an index wound, our unit now refers patients not as being cured but rather as being “in remission.” This concept is easy for the patient and the rest of the team to understand. We believe that it powerfully connotes the necessity for frequent follow-up and rapid intervention for inevitable minor and sometimes major complications. This session will review tried and true as well as up-to-the minute advances in mechanics, medicine and surgery that are “pushing the envelope” in extending ulcerfree and hospital-free days in our efforts to make prevention pay.

Is It Lumbar Spinal Stenosis or Diabetic Neuropathy or Both? (C14-B)

Katia Langton, DC, CPed (C), CPed Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a degenerative condition in the lumbar spine causing narrowing that compresses the spinal cord and nerves at the level of the lumbar vertebrae. The resultant symptoms mimic Diabetic Neuropathy and the diagnosis of Lumbar Stenosis is being missed in these patients. This is clinically relevant as Stenosis limits the ability to walk so patients will be ending up in your office!

Team Approach: The Only Way to Manage the Diabetic Foot (C14-C)

FRIDAY

Judith F. Baumhauer, MD Dennis Janisse, CPed The team approach to conservative foot care is a time-tested and proven one in general. When it comes to the diabetic foot, however, it is indispensable. Diabetic foot complications like Charcot arthropathy, ulcers and amputations require the whole team for successful prevention and intervention. Communication, understanding and interdisciplinary coordination is critical. Identifying and utilizing all of the team members skills and tools contributes immensely to improved outcomes for our patients.

Symposium: The Role of Microprocessor Controlled Orthoses: An Update on Current Experiences and Upcoming Projects (C19)

SATU RDAY

Room 24 BC (Convention Center, Upper Level) Malte Bellmann, PhD, CPO Thomas DiBello, CO, LO, FAAOP Andreas Hahn, PhD, MSc Arun Jayaraman, PT, PhD Andreas Kannenberg, MD (GER), PhD Kenton Kaufman, PhD, PE Jason Wening, MS, CPO, FAAOP In 2012, the microprocessor controlled KAFO, “C-Brace”, was introduced to improve the mobility and safety of patients with severe neuromuscular deficits of the lower limbs. The system uniquely enables controlled knee flexion during weight bearing and variable speed adaptation during swing. Together with a state-of the art safety algorithm, patients with complex lower limb muscle paralyses are able to execute a wide range of ADLs in a safer and biomechanically more effective way. Following a review of the state of the art in KAFO principles, highlighting current evidence, the results from the early biomechanical and clinical comparisons between C-Brace and conventional KAFOs will be presented with a focus on the specific potential of these devices to improve patient safety. The results from the first landmark randomized controlled C-Brace trial will be discussed. We will report on experiences from a number of investigations in different etiologies, the importance of appropriate, accompanying physiotherapy shall be highlighted, and practical techniques regarding differences in device fabrication and clinical differences between the last and the current device generation shall be discussed. Last, but not least we shall discuss aspects regarding the medical indication and medical necessity of this new generation of the C-Brace.

Prosthetic Care for Patients with Combat Related Lower Limb Loss at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (C20-H)

Akshay Thaper Douglas Smith, MD Given the complexities of blast trauma, it is not uncommon for injured service members with amputation to have rapid and frequent residual limb volume changes. At Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), the philosophy that an intimately fitting socket may lead to more rapid rehabilitation, and return to higher level activities, meant that sockets were frequently adjusted or re-fabricated to accommodate the personal needs of each unique wounded warrior. A retrospective review of the health records of 119 service members with combat-related lower limb amputation revealed that a wide range of sockets (between 1 and 39) were prescribed during the first year of prosthetic care at WRNMMC.
