External Bracing with Chris Dean and Maurice Hawkins – 115
Maurice Hawkins from Gazelle Health Care lends us some expert opinion on the topic of external bracing focusing specifically on the Ankle Roll Guard invented by Chris Dean. The Ankle Roll Guard fits outside the shoe and acts as a block for inversion ankle sprains. we do have concerns about this product on football or soccer players, but Chris says he is planning to do some trials with outside sports, but for now he has been focused on court sports since he is an avid basketball player.
John Harmon and I have spent a good bit of time together riding to meetings for GHATS. One time we began discussing things we wish they had taught us in college to help us succeed as an athletic trainer in the secondary setting. Budgeting, building relationships with vendors, insurance claim forms, student athletic trainer programs…they may have taught us something about them, but we could not recall lessons or courses on these topics. So we decided to share some stories and things we have learned. Nicole Cascia is going to be a rock star after hearing from so many experienced ATs about how to not fail.
