It’s time to take it to the next level with your balance and mobility when using your prosthesis. Dr. Carol Miller, professor of physical therapy at the University of North Georgia, returns to guide you through the cup-walking exercise. This dynamic exercise is for amputees who are already comfortable with their balance while standing and are ready to increase control over their mobility.
