Mission Gait Academy
Become a Course Sponsor! For prosthetic and orthotic companies

Unlock a new level of proficiency in gait rehabilitation for your community by sponsoring Mission Gait Foundation’s acclaimed Level I gait rehabilitation course. This 15-hour CEU course is designed to provide clinicians with an advanced, in-depth framework of gait theory, rehabilitation principles, and analysis to effectively treat gait dysfunction.

Sponsoring a course sets your organization apart from competitors by not only establishing providers within the organization as experts in gait rehabilitation, but also displaying your dedication to elevating standards of care within your community. Sponsorship further provides the benefit of additional exposure for your brand and expertise to the wider gait rehabilitation community.

Note: As you know, PTs don’t want to sit in a chair for 2 days and be lectured to, so we offer breakout labs throughout the course. If the course is in a rehab gym, we will use the mat table/plinths, but if not, we therapists are adaptable and can do the exercise labs on the floor. It is nice to have a small set of (7’) folding bars, but we can talk to your local prosthetists about bringing those in for the weekend. If unavailable, again, we can adapt as needed.
