2. Patient Description:
Ms.Smith is a 55 y.o. female patient 2 weeks s/p (R) TKA. Currently, the
patient is ambulating with a forward wheeled walker but is ready to
progress to another assistive device. During this follow-up treatment, the
SPT will fit Ms. Smith with the assistive device and instruct her to ambulate
over level surfaces and negotiate stairs so that she can manage at home
safely. The Timed Up and Go (TUG) Test is also performed to assess the
patient’s falls risk.
