Primary feature of the ACT program is the Focused Amputee Strength Training (FAST) program led by UCSF athletic trainers.
Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) work in various setting at the UCSF Orthopaedic Institute, including Orthotics and Prosthetics. While working in O&P, ATCs fit most off-the-shelf orthotics and work with amputees on strength training. ATCs have developed an initial training program for amputees titled Focused Amputee Strength Training (FAST). The program focuses on core strength and balancing the body for better stability and balance when ambulating.
