You want continuing professional development (CPD) to take place when it suits you – and this Plantar Pressure Analysis e-course, developed by Paul Graham, is designed with you in mind. Upon completion, you will have acquired three hours of CPD.

Spanning seven modules, each 15-minute module builds on from the previous module to cover the analysis of clinical plantar pressure and physical musculoskeletal examination. The outcome provides clear direction on the diagnosis and treatment of gait dysfunction.

You will learn more about plantar pressure data, which tells you what is happening in your patients’ feet, based on their steps. This data can reveal which systems are interacting to provide insights into the weight-bearing trajectory through each foot.

The role of a musculoskeletal examination in identifying foot dysfunction is also explored, as seen in the plantar pressure analysis. This includes analysis of:

  • the pathway or trajectory of body weight through the legs and feet into the ground
  • how the body compensates, and;
  • any secondary adaptations that have occurred through dysfunction.

In this e-course, analysis of clinical plantar pressure and a patient’s physical musculoskeletal examination combines to provide you with a clear direction for the diagnosis and treatment of gait dysfunction.

How this e-course can help

From covering the biomechanical principles of force, through to how the body manages these forces and their effect on foot function – right through to understanding different types of plantar pressure systems and the benefits of pressure analysis – there is a lot to gain from taking this course.

The good news is that if you are an APodA member, this course is significantly reduced for you.
