The Impact of Peripheral Arterial Disease on Gait Webinar



Tuesday, 3 October 2023 4:00pm – 5:30pm AEDT

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) involves the build-up of plaque (atherosclerosis) along the arteries that carry blood to the peripheries (legs). Overtime, this plaque can reduce oxygen-rich blood supply to the peripheries. The impact of this reduced blood supply can be detrimental on a patients’ health and impacts their walking ability and performance. This webinar concisely describes the impact of PAD on gait and highlights strategies for exercise therapists to assist clients presenting with PAD.
