Osseointegration - An Alternative to Exoprosthetics?

Short description

Since the 1990s, transcutaneous osseointegrated prosthetic systems (TOPS) have been continuously developed for people with arm or leg amputations. The participants get to know the state of development and which criteria are medically, therapeutically and orthopaedically important. You will learn from practice for practice what advantages this type of care offers compared to a conventional shaft prosthetic system and for which patient clientele the risks and potentials of this prosthetic care technology arise.
