Webinar sponsored by Allard

This month’s webinar addresses two frequently mentioned topics for the FSHD Community: knee hyperextension and spinal issues such as lordosis that result from the weakening of core muscles. Orthotic braces and supports can provide solutions for some individuals. Our speaker is Bob Meier (ABC CO #3818).
Bob has been active in the fields of orthotics, therapeutic exercise and biomechanics since 1978, and has been conducting education programs since 1982. His special interest is in applied closed chain biomechanics and muscle function. He has taught numerous courses across North America and Europe on gait assessment, rehabilitation and orthotics. He holds six patents involving orthotics and applied biomechanics for spine and lower extremity applications.

Bob has authored numerous articles and clinical/technical manuals on both rehab and orthotic products ranging from the Biomechanical Ankle Platform System (BAPS), STAR (Stability Testing And Rehabilitation) Station, Sitting, Walking, and Standing Hip (SWASH) orthosis, partial foot prosthesis, pediatric orthotic interventions and the ToeOFF composite kinetic return AFO.
