Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


Did you know finger and partial hand amputations make up almost 1/3 of the total amputations in the US each year? One study shows that 75% of manual laboring men were unable to return to their vocation after their amputation, and 26% left the workforce entirely. This webinar will review the prevalence and etiology of this patient population and introduce current prosthetic options available. We will display the robust function that can be restored with the optimized mechanics from Naked Prosthetics and close by discussing how collaborative care can positively affect outcomes for those who have experienced partial hand amputations on the job.

Credits: 1.0 CEs of the following credits have been applied: ABVE, CLCP-MSCC, CRCC, CVE-CWA-CCAA (Pending Approval)


At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Compare the percentage of finger amputations to that of other upper extremity amputations.
  2. Recognize the impact finger amputations have on heavy manual laborers.
  3. Identify the current prosthetic interventions available for partial hand amputations.
  4. Recognize the applicability of body-driven prosthetics as a tool to get injured workers back to work safely in all environments.
  5. Understand how collaborative multi-disciplinary care improves patient outcomes and safe return to work.
