The latest in the series of online professional continuing education
(PCE) courses based on findings from the Academy's State-of-the-Science

Center. The course on Prosthetic Foot/Ankle Mechanisms stems from the
Academy's fifth SSC chaired by Don Cummings, CP with Texas Scottish Rite

The course, accessible at your convenience, offers practitioners 12 PCE
credits and includes a 100-question assessment quiz. The conference on
which this latest PCE course was based, the subsequent printing and
distribution of findings, and the course development were funded by a
grant from the U.S. Department of Education (H235J040017).
